Hi Pfact,

Ill post a pic of it tomorrow but it’s a modified tip of an old airbrush that’s on the end of a soldering iron and to get the spacing perfect I use a metal rule with notches cut in it works real well !!
Ill show you tomorrow what it looks like To late now to go and take a pic.

I have the PNP Mirage 2000C plans. I think they are 1/7 scale. A set of retracts for this size would be nice. Keep up the good work.

Carlos,

I can make set of 1/5 scale gear if you are interested, would look great in you Jet

Ppljr, The mirage 2000 is a little different But I can easily make you a set for your jet! It’s just a little change here and there!
