Nice job Ryan! Did you try the gloss black and then silver over the black method used on plastic models or some other method? If so what in your opinion went wrong or didn't look right? The plane as it is looks great and wish you many happy flights! Mike

Thank you, Matt. I haven't flown a Ziroli yet that didn't fly great!

Mike, thanks.  yea, I put on a gloss black and after it flashed I followed with the chrome so I would have the very best adhesion.  The problem is that the chrome can not withstand any rubbing or masking, so it has to be clear coated.  When I put the clear coat on, it developed a very bad orange peal and delaminated when I tried to put painting masks on.  It pealed off with ease.  The reflective properties of the chrome kind of just sit on top like a delicate powder.  The orange peal effect I got with the clear seemed to be created by a static repelling force kind of like how a waxed car hood beads water.  In the end, it still turned out great with the silver paint.

Thank you, Jiri!

I do have a video I can share as an update:  

https://youtu.be/8pzC2eDlB4w?si=UmA3zRTgYBjQctwg

I am currently waiting on the weather to cooperate here in North Carolina for the Maiden.  In the mean time, as a part of my pre-maiden check list, I wanted to do some taxi testing.  I was unprepared for an interview, so I stubble through it some, but the video starts out as a discussion between me and the video guy.  At the end of the clip you get to see some taxi runs up and down the runway.  Hopefully I'll have a maiden video to share soon.

Ryan
