Here’s the story:

I was looking to get a smaller warbird that I can just put in the car and go…..no assembly.  Trying to keep up with OB ( Brad and Chris ) on the weekends…..well I came across the FlightlineRC Hawker Sea Fury and for 2 bills ordered her up.


Started looking up the plane online and the first thing I saw was this!! 

O.M.G. that is AWESOME!!  Then Started watching some vids, and pretty much LOST MY MIND!


SO,  I started my warbird Project turning my Sea Fury ( pretty much the UGLIEST plane I ever bought )  into a Reno Racer…….

While looking up this bird, I did come across some RC planes that had the same/similar graphics, but didn’t seem quite right, and they hadn’t been made in 4 or 5 years.  So I’ll cut to the chase…..in order are the steps I took to paint this plane.  Thank you to Bob Stinson for his input on paint as well as Michael at MotionRC.

3-4-5 are of the Real Reno Racer……..

The pics are step by step……so if you have any questions, feel free to stop by and ask at the field.
