Do you want to keep both the Flap AND Aileron linkages hidden?

If this is your first scale project KISS (keep is simple stupid).By having the works exposed you can get a better idea of how this stuff works. Scale projects never end you just quit workin on them. My Pica Mustang has flaps but I did them as per the plans. Have Fun

I have already set up the linkage for ailerons as hidden,which i think is a cheaper,easier and simpler way of doing it as oppose to shown on the plans,what i have done is planked the underside of the wing and control sufaces completely and left the top open so that i can test and make sure every thing is working,but i went through a lot of trial and error proscess to figure out everything so far....i was looking for some ideas that will make the process easier for a hidden flaps linkage....this is my seconed kit the first one is a 40 size GP P51 with retracts and completely glassed with panel lines and rivets...


Thanks
