Dave dident you pack out the 52 off the firewall due to the short standoffs ?
Yes there is a plywood plate in there to pack it out forward, but there was no change to the firewall angles, so for the question he was asking, in effect bolted straight to the firewall

Thanks

It looks to me like a Slimline muffler which I think has the best sound for the 50cc range...I have the Jtec equivalent and they dont have the deep sound of the Slimline.

You are right, it is a Slimline muffler, not a JTEC. I use a JTEC (larger) on my TF GS P-47. In that case, I need to trim a little bit off the engine box.

As for the Dora, I willshorten the exhaust pipes a little. Will post a few pictures with the fuselage upright and cowling in place in a couple of days. It looks as though the appearance will be quiteOK. I have not tried the Slimline muffler ona 50cc before, so I am currious about the sound.

Not a thing wrong with that P47 I am going with a similar set up since yours looks so good. DA50 and a slimline. How is the firewall since you cut out the bottom section? You gonna need to reinforce in any way? What about the open fuse section...idea...take some thin balsa and wet one side so it will curve along the grain for you, then lay it in the opening from the firewall to the front of the fuse. Work it in and glue it. Piece the ends in then come back and trim it off...thin epoxy and paint it. It will help channel the heat away from the muffler and engine and keep hot air out of the fuse. Hope this helps since you already worked out how my engine is going on

The firewall is very sturdy and I do not think it actually needs reinforcement. I will, however, reinforce the rear of it with alutech plates. I have also coated the front ofthe firewallwith epoxy to strengthen it, and coated the inside of the fuselage in front of the firewall, as well as about an inch of the front of the firewall along its periphery,with epoxy and fiberglass for extra strength.

Thanks for the suggestion for closing the gap. I am stillthinking about various alternatives for how to do it.

Friends,

My EP 50cc Dora project is just finishing up.  
    Has anyone considered the heavy fixed toe-in which occurs when the Sierra mains are installed?   Should still handle OK but more than I would build in.  Could not see any way to adjust the axles on the legs.

  Regards,

Doug Andre

Mine has very very little toe in.

When I was opening up the factory retract rails I was paying very close attention to the angles, one of the those being toe in. This does mean that my retracts do not sit parrallel to the original cutouts. Just trying to get the sierra mains into the wheels well's will drive you to adjust these angles as it is.

She tracks very nicely on the ground.

Thanks

Thanks to all.
I will leave them alone.   I went to great lengths to cut the mount plates and position the legs and wheels in the best possible position.  

The quality of the Sierra gear is fantastic and is worth the extra effort.

Regards,
Doug Andre

There's an A-8 in the ad section. Any of the Sis-T kits are very difficult to get. Stephan doesn't seem to be making them.

Hi ticketec,

What would you think of a 20x12x3 on the 53cc twin?

Plan B!!

Sierras temporaryly installed. I placed at the bottom of the retract three 3/8th pieces of maple and two pieces in front to get the proper or close to distances. I like this better for all the reason I mentioned prior, I can place a larger wheel and I can get another retract unit for $109.

I'll keep the other ESM gear, repair it and use it as a fixed gear for the second D9 if that time ever comes.

I am working on installing the Sierra tail retracts now. You wouldn't happen to have a picture or two of the actual mounting of the tailwheels showing the maple pieces glued into place?

Cheers

I places blind nuts behind the factory formers then placed the maple blocks with aeropoxy or Hysol. Hope this helps.

Friends,

     Does anyone know of a source for Luftwaffe aircraft stenciling  or decals such as fuel type, no step warnings, lift here and tire pressures?
I take them for granted on my small scale plastic models.   I would love to discover a dry-transfer set for 1/5 th scale.

Regards,

Doug

The best decals are from www.Tailormadedecals.com. They are in Germany. Great service and a very good selection for the FW and Me109 as well as other Axis and Alllied countries.
