1/4 scale Widgeon

This is the place to discuss and ultimately show-off all aspects of constructing and actually flying your radio-control flying boat models. Pictures of construction, materials used, finishing and action shots of them flying, are very welcome.

Interesting, photobucket and or this site will not allow me to upload any more pictures.
I'm not computer literate so I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.
Can't get to load any more and when I hit the back button it kicks me off the site!

Looks good so far.
Clicking on the photo posted here takes one to your Photobucket page and the other 4 photos.
When you get closer to finishing let me know and we'll see what kind of color scheme we can come up with.

I'm leaning toward the red and black or the yellow and black factory scheme.
Yellow might be the best bet as being able to see the plane is somewhat important. :lol: The old eyes ain't what they used to be(neither is anything else, for that matter) :roll:
I'll keep plugging away with the pictures as work progresses.

Cheers,
Dave.

Oh yeah, forgot, the memory ain't what it used to be either (as well as the eyes and uhh, the other too).
Gettin' old sucks.

(BTW, there were other factory paint options beside those two, mostly using Silver or White as a base color with Red, Blue or Green as optional trim colors, all using the same scheme lay out.)

Hi Dave,

I can assure you it's not the site, there is no limit to posting images here that I'm aware of. Knowing Photobucket as I do, I suspect the answer lies there, either in the account settings or something like the photo size or Mb quantity etc.

If you want to email me the same images I will gladly upload them on my Photobucket account, to here for you :D
Best Regards,
