    Dadrivet, As Mrdhud said there is no turning back now. Once you open the box your at the point of no return. Enjoy the build and have fun.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Dan:

    Here are a couple of pictures of my struts mounted. I installed a 1/4" AC plywood mounting plate at points in the fuselage structure where the bent wire struts slip into the grooves in the hardwood blocks provided in the kit. The elevation of the bottom of the plate is the same as the tops of the grooves for the wires. Because I build "hell for stout", I installed 1/8" lite ply gusset plates from the top of the strut mounting plate to the back of the firewall. I used #10 cap screws through t-nuts to attach the struts to the plywood plate. Overall this scheme added about 1 pound to the total weight of the airplane. But as I have said previously, at 19 pounds dry, my WACO "does not know it is heavy". With my DLE 30 at half throttle, it lifts off the runway about 15 feet after the tail comes up, and it absolutely floats when landing. My best landings have been "dead stick".

    RE: WACO YMF

    Jim,
    Thanks for the pictures that’s kind of what I had in mind. I have glued in the ΒΌ ply and started to patch in the sheeting up to the gear not sure how I will frame in on top of the gear yet any suggestions? Will post pictures soon.

    Jim,

    What scale is your Waco?  1/5?

    Dash7ATP: My WACO is 1/5 scale:

    Dan: There are several early posts that include photos of sheeting the struts. I suggest you go to page 1, scroll down to "aluminum sheeting", and click through the messages listed.

    RE: WACO YMF

    Does anyone know where I can get a dummy 7 cylinder engine for the 1/6th WACO YMF-3? All I can find is the 9 cylinder ones.

    Thanks,

    Carl B

    cdbarker, try tower hobbies or horizon look for their steerman or other radel engine aircraft arf replacements parts, you should find something that will work.

    Chris

    Thanks for your words of praise. Please understand that my comments about your elevator servo were to offer genuine help, not to have a difference of opinion or to criticise. I post on this forum to maybe help someone in their building endeavours, and to learn from others. I have been humbled by what I have learned from people like yourself, Stickbuilder, tMac and many others on this and many other forums. I love this hobby passionately and have met some wonderful people in both the real and the cyber world and do not wish to upset anyone.

    Regards to all

    Lordie, buried back in the pages is a how to on building your own radial engine. You can do it for the sixth scale just as easily. It takes an evening or so to build it, but you can say that you did it yourself.

    Edit: the how to with pictures is found on page 299.

    Have a Blessed Day!

    Thanks Bill, that will be handy when I get time to start mine...All the references where to find stuff comes in handy...the "catalog " on page one helps, but I always seem to miss finding something I know I saw!

    Ken has not had the time to update the index for some time now. Maybe he will be up to it soon.

    Hope no one thought me complaining! I use the index when I can, and use the search when I can...problem is, my search lingo doesn't always bring up what I'm looking for...so I wind up paging through and re-reading stuff...but I actually learn more that way I think!

    Thanks again!

    No, no one is complaining. I wish that he had the time to do it as well. I often must look through several pages in order to find what I'm looking for. I do know about what time frame I'm looking into, but it still takes hours to find it.

    On a different note, anyone ever found a good epoxy (maybe something like Hysol) that will bond aluminum to wood? Needs to be really strong, and fairly light.
