  1. I am using a product made by Cortec. It is a US-manufactured water-based primer that is applied very thinly. Many North American Zenith aircraft builders use this product. Here is a short description of the product: https://www.ecorrsystems.com/store/p/4709-Cortec-VpCI-373-High-Performance-Coating-5-Gal.aspx
  2. A number of Savannah builders also refer to it as "black goop".
  3. Great to hear from you again, Bex❕ I hope you make as a good a recovery as possible. Keep up the good work.
  4. According to the above chart, the AM13 is just 5 lb (2.2 kg) heavier than the 100 hp Rotax 912. I wonder if Aeromomentum Australia could confirm this?
  5. Apart from the drawings with the kit, there are no more detailed drawings.
  6. I am glad you have someone sorted for your painting. I am still thinking about my own colour scheme too. Mmm? What to choose...
  7. 📸 We look forward to lots of pictures!
  8. Sorry to hear about the sudden loss of oil just after takeoff. A very sad report. The occupants didn't have a chance.
  9. You could try ringing them: +61754954951
  10. If you feel a bit troubled, it is better to simply ignore the troll. Don't give any of them any oxygen. If they get no response(s), then eventually they fade away and either troll elsewhere or spend time weeding their garden.
  11. I am using Cortec VpCI-373, a corrosion inhibitor that is recommended by Zenith. VpCI-373 is frequently used by North American aluminium aircraft builders. So far, I have found it easy to apply with a brush. This Cortec product is supposed to prevent any vapour (and airborne corrosive salts) entering into the small gaps between the riveted parts which may eventually cause corrosion.
  12. The sound will always be projected ahead with RAAus aircraft but they don't work for aircraft flying faster than Mach 1.
  13. The tapered wing roots certainly look 701-esque.
  14. Does your one have the 600 kg wing? ...or are you planning to 'beef up' your wings to the higher weight performance??
  15. I wonder why there is no dealer Down Under?
  16. It cost about twenty million US dollars.
  17. A great variety of artistic work on these planes❗
  18. Hi Skippy, Have you considered getting an MGL brand EFIS?
  19. This is a nice picture of the engine from Wikipedia.
