COMMENTS

Following are the colors of Top Flite MonoKote used to cover this
model and order number for six foot rolls;
Jet White TOPQ0204
Orange TOPQ0202

If a replacement fuel tank is needed, order the Sullivan 8oz
Flextank (SULQ1739), or the DuBro 8oz tank (DUBQ0208).
Some minor trimming and modifications may be required. These tanks
are smaller than the tank originally supplied and will give shorter
run times.
