Re: 1/2020 -Flying Styro Spitfire MK IXc- Battery Hatch

I am now trying to clean up the edges all around the battery hatch. The molded foam is i very susceptible to bumps and bruises. I used some of the thinnest plywood I ever found on the market in a crafts store. I believe it is 1/64th inch thick, Very easily worked with a knife or scissors. I cut some...

Re: 1/2020 -Flying Styro Spitfire MK IXc- Bucket Project Put Together
