Default Tower Hobbies Ryan STA

The Ryan ST's are my all time favorite airplane This was an ARF Tower Hobbies introduced about a year or so ago maybe more. I had to have it but not in their factory color. I like the think the original Ryan factory silver and aluminum was the ultimate.

I had to remove the Tower Hobby cover and recovered it with Ultracote Chrome for the fuse and silver for the wings and tail. The cockpit is scratch built and water slide decals and patterns for the original style trim were cut from Monokote and applied to the fuselage and wheel pants.

Can't maiden it - the chrome cover apparently reflects signal and will not Range Check! Not sure what to do yet but I need to find a solution. Either recover the fuse with silver like the wings or find a way to extend the antenna outside the airframe.

Anyway I'm still very proud of how it came out and want to share the results.
