IMPORTANT BUILDING NOTES
When you see the term test fit in the instructions, it means
that you should first position the part on the assembly without using any glue, then slightly modify or custom fit the part as necessary for the best fit.
Whenever the term “glue” is written, you should rely upon
your experience to decide what type of glue to use. When a specific type of adhesive works best for that step, the instructions will make a recommendation.
Photos and sketches are placed before the step they refer
to. Frequently you can study photos in following steps to get another view of the same parts.
The Cirrus SR22 is factory-covered with Top Flite Jet White
MonoKote film (TOPQ0204). Should repairs ever be required, MonoKote can be patched with additional MonoKote purchased separately. MonoKote is packaged in six-foot rolls, but some hobby shops also sell it by the foot. If only a small piece of MonoKote is needed for a minor patch, perhaps a fellow modeler would give you some. MonoKote is applied with a model airplane covering iron, but in an emergency a regular iron could be used. A roll of MonoKote includes full instructions for application.
The stabilizer and wing incidences and engine thrust angles
have been factory-built into this model. However, some technically-minded modelers may wish to check these measurements anyway. To view this information visit the web site at www.greatplanes.com and click on “Technical Data.” Due to manufacturing tolerances which will have little or no effect on the way your model will fly, please expect slight deviations between your model and the published values.
