Vario Cobra As well as the Seaking we are currently working on re-vamping a Vario Cobra. It’s fitted with a Zenoah 23cc petrol engine and had a rather strange camo paint scheme, The owner has asked us to scale it up a bit, with full cockpit detail, add the weapons kit a general tidy up and of course a nice new coat of paint. Here’s the chosen colour scheme.
Here’s the model after removing the old paint and giving it a coat of primer.
Here is a 3D drawing of what will be the instrument panel. These are currently in production and should be with us very soon.
 The panels arrived the day after I updated this web page and here are the photo’s of them just after they were unpacked.
The detail is amazing !

Fuselage with the first two colours applied.

The following photo’s show the stages of applying the logo’s with paint masks’
Paint mask applied and a couple of light coats of paint.

leaving the registration number.
Here’s the pilot that the customer has asked for 
and the gunner getting to grips with the sighting system
Mechanics now refitted, with the new flybarless head and Bavarian Demon stabilisation system.
All ready to fly.
This is how the model came to us, very little scale detail, no weapons systems and in a very odd looking colour scheme.
