I guess you missed it in my earlier posts, but you can see my wing attachment screws in the pictures I posted.

On the wing side, I glued some 1/4" ply out at the end of the aluminum spar, drilled and tapped it for a set screw. I will keep the spars in the wings because they are small enough for me to transport and keep in the shop.

Next I added 1/4" ply to the fuselage (see pictures) and drilled and tapped for screws. Ideally I would like the screws more towards the ends of the spars, but it was the only place to put them on the fuselage.

Right now I have a 1 gallon tank just in between the split of the intakes. I will also add 2 additional tanks where the stock landing gear were located.

Right now I'm building another Skymaster F-4, this one is for me, but I will get the 104 glassed before the summer is out. I plan to maiden the 104 early next year.

Hey Luke

Sorry for the late reply been flat out with work and family not much building going on. I thought it would be something like that for the secure of the wings but I've also been thinking of leaving the aluminum spar in the fuselage I'll have a play around with that and let you know how it go's. I'll send a email to CMJets tanks and see what he has got. Love the F-4s but already pick up a side project a ESM PC-21 I'm going to convert to a turbo prop and repaint in the Australian colour scheme and I'll need Mirce to me a scale detail set for it . Maybe next year for a F-4.

I do get some time to work on the 104, got the last of the servo installation figured out, the elevator. Early in the project I was just going to use the external linkage, I would prefer to have it internal, but that ship has sailed. This will make disassembly and maintenance/inspection much easier. Plus painting all the linkage with the plane makes it almost completely disappear from a short distance away.

The attachment point with PC board material may be a bit overkill, but it will almost always be pulling (up elevator) so I wanted piece of mind. I figured that the best point for the arm was right over the front spar on the stab, 100 percent throw will give me some extra if I need it, but for the stock recommended throw the servo will only need about 70 percent travel.

The sheeting will be glued back on and the end capped and sanded for a good fit on the vertical.

Mirce, you inspire me! I set mine aside to finish two other jets (ARF's), but I will be back soon.

Good work my friend and thanks for sticking with this project and showing us how it is done!

Hi guys. Great job on the build. Hopefully I can join in soon :-)

Checklist so far:

1, Order kit from Mirce check
2, Order heaps of balsawood sheets check
3, Order glue, tools and supplies check
4, Buy scale model to help the build process check
5 wait for everything to show up. standby :-)


Have you guys had a chance to weigh yours yet ?
How large a servo is reccomended on the elevator ?
I really dont like the looks with the external servos on the outside of the elevators, and will be doing mine internally.
Hopefully a single servo, if the torque can be met with a single servo.?

Still waiting for miy kit.

​​​​​​Tried out Alclad II on my plastic model, and it turned out ok. Anyone used this finish on an rc plane. Is it durable?
