    We currently have available a scale aluminum instrument panel with gauges, the wing gun port fairings, and will soon have the wing hinge covers, and gear door interiors.

    Currently, we use mechanical links on the tail doors, and a closed system air on the main doors. This is completely contained in the center section with no disconnects. Very reliable.

    Not familiar with the Balsa USA kit. I do use the Balsa Dynamics kit, but the instrument panel in that kit is not up to my standards. that is why I developed my own to augment that kit.

    Gary, Getting ready to mount the moki with your standoffs. Can I trust the hole in the firewall that comparf places to be dead center? If I can overlay your template and center it, that would rock!

    Sorry for the one word answer. I did that from my phone and I have a hard time typing long answers from that. The hole in the center moves depending on how you glued the ply on. I use the mold seam lines to establish a cross hair on the firewall and use this as the starting point for measuring. The center of the template will be to the port side of center and slightly below the horizontal line. I can give you these dimensions if I haven't already. The reason it is not in the center is because of the thrust angle of the engine. 2.5 deg right and .05 deg of up means it must be moved off center in order for the prop to be centered in the cowl and this is important or you will have rockers poking threw.

    Gary, finally got around to trying to mount the moki. I think the stand offs are too long. Here are some pics. How far out should the prop be? Its 35 mm from the back of the prop blade to the edge of the cowl. I'm thinking less than 10mm would be ideal. I looked at a bunch of my reference books, they all had the prop closer. Am I missing something? The stairs made the perfect place to try in the motor without having to hold it!

    A walk through the storage tent at War Birds over Delaware. Thanks to the encouragement from my buddy John, I finally made it this year. What a fine event.

    Unfortunately, we had an accident with his Corsair on Friday. Dino DiGorgio was flying her when for still undetermined reasons the Moki quit. She was coming down the run way fairly low for a high speed pass, gear up and clean. In a nano second Dino had her slowed down doing a series of quick S turns, set up, and did a perfect belly landing off the end of the runway. Unfortunately, the Corsair is one of the worst fighters for the belly landing due to the gull wing. She stuck, and I mean really stuck, in the ground. I don't think she slid 5 feet. tore all the gear doors off and broke her back right through the cockpit in the weakest spot on the CARF. Aside from the gear doors and some bent wing tubes the wings are OK. Dino kept her perfectly level. The fuse is repairable. Some carbon fiber in the mid section will be used. She will be better than before.

    Engine is being sent out for a complete going over. Don't ever want this to happen again. We found a loose plug in the ignition (could have happened in the landing), and I found a jug with very loose bolts, finger tight, with clear signs of leakage.

    Hi Gary,

    So sorry to hear that you have lost the Corsair.
    I really hate having to repair beautiful aircraft - but needs must I suppose.

    I hope it all works out.
    Fingers crossed that the Moki has survived intact.

    Regards

    Steve D
