Horizontal stabs took a little more effort but still not bad. Hardest part was having to cut down the servo arms since mine where to long. You will want about a 3/4 inch servo arm. These give lots of torque and resolution. I had to trim the fuselage back a little to get decent throw.

Took a break from servos and painted the bomb bays. They look sweet!

This looks like a really cool jet. Looking closely. Really want to see how it flies with the 260.

What kind of paint did you use to paint the inside of the bomb bays?

Chris,
What fuel line ID are you using? What do you consider high flow.
Thanks, Gary

Hello Gary

Using normal 6MM line. High flow would be 8MM.

The paint is some white spray bomb used to paint full scale aircraft parts. Its an enamel. Cant wait to get into the weather side. Going to get nice and dirty in the bays. Sean McHale is sending me some beautiful missiles for the side bays. The trick will be finding time to make them stick out with the doors open. Not allot of room in this area with the inlets and fuel tanks. We will see.

Chris, are you talking about 6mm OD which is about 4mm ID and 8mm OD which is about 6mm ID.
Thanks, Gary

Tail section almost ready to install for the last time. When everyone gets theirs make sure to tie wrap the wires for the stabs and rudders so when you remove and install the horizontal stabs you donít pinch a wire installing them.

Are your going to put any protect on the walls that extend past the vectoring nozzles? Damn cool project, I have lost all motivation for the F-18 and benching it for one of these.

the walls should be ok. My old one got nice and weathered from the exhaust their. Pretty sure this one will be the same.

Didnít want fuel vents showing on the belly. So I took advantage of the screens installed on the belly and made hidden vents through them.



2 blocks of wood with a brass tube glued into it. They sit right on top of the screen.

Got hinges on. Forward hinge will just clear the fuel tank. Going to be allot of fun installing a servo for it though.

I also cut the hatch latches off! I hate hatch latches. They ruin the plane. So I will be trying to come up with a hidden latch system. I have something in mind but not sure if it will work. We will see.

So am I understanding correctly on the vents that you will not be able to hook up an overflow/taxi tank?

correct. I don't use taxi tanks because they are so messy lol. This plane looks to have plenty of fuel capacity anyway so should not be needed.

Got missiles from Sean McHale at Strictlyscale! They look freaking great! Need to do a slight trim on the fins that are on the inside but fit like a glove.

Here is what Iím thinking for the ejector rack... this might change so itís not in stone. The challenge is the only spot for a servo to operate it is from behind. So my idea is to use an old drag brace from a plane I had laying around with a hinge at the back. This way I can connect a linkage to the middle and have it function from behind.

All servos installed for wings. Took a couple evenings to get done. Pretty straight forward and easy to do. Biggest thing is to use small servo arms and strong servos for the leading edge flaps.

When i I built my skymaster F18 I think I spent almost 2 weeks getting the wings done. It was a complete cluster *uck. Spent so much time with a dremel trying to make servos fit and get wired through along with trimming the rear spar...

this is is nothing like that and is well thought out and goes together pretty smoothly.

Leading edge flap.


Covers are clear.


Aileron servo


Flap servo

Servo arms I used where to long so I had to cut them down and drill and tap them. For the ailerons and leading edge you will need about a 9/16 length servo arm from hole to hole.
