Default RE: TF 1/5 Scale P-51 ARF Assembly Thread

Well, thinks are moving along; but have come to a complete stop until my retracts are here. Yep, I have done just about everything I can until I get the retracts installed. The enclosed photos are of the business end with my break-in prop installed. I got a Mejlik 3-blade coming for serious flying.

CAUTION: If you are using the supplied spinner with an engine that has multi-bolt prop mounting - make sure you get everything lined up before drilling the spinner backplate. or you will have to end up grinding out the edges of the spinner. The holes in the engine, spinner back plate and prop must all line up. So check twice before drilling.

I installed the Robart retractable tailwheel. It was a complete drop-in basically. Drill 4 holes and a couple of other things - thats it.

Has anyone installed that absolutely crappy, fake exhaust manifold? It looks horrible and fits the cowl even worse.
