You stated in your post on page 40:
With my marks triple checked, I cut the homemade rails in. I then epoxied the rails in the slots. I am using a flat head machine bolt, with a jam nut tightening it to the canopy. Then a self-locking nut will be screwed onto the inside, which will run in the rail. This will give the scale look on the outside of the canopy. I'll drill a hole behind the rail so these can be inserted, then I'll screw a plate on to cover this. The full scale has this look.
I was going to use brass for the doubler on the inside of the canopy, but then thought of using some carbon fiber and found that the pieces that you cut the main gear doors are perfect for this. I cut this to shape and was able to drill and tap it with 2-56. Works great.
My project is a Zeroli Corsair. I just got the L&D jackscrew and controller from Mitch and looks very good.
I am looking at the flat screw and locking nut you used for sliding in the sloted brass rails for the back of the canopy. My 2-56 locking nuts are to big for the 1/4 square brass rails I have from NCIS (R.I.P).
Also in a few posts latter you show going to a ball link with L shaped brass for mounting to the front of the canopy. how did you attach the push rod to the ball?
I have found at my LHS a ball and socket 4-40 size that, with some sanding I can get it to work. These are make by LOSI and are at Horizon. Looks like model car stuff.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
I have the NCIS supplied rails and ball links but cannot find a small enough nut to fit inside my rails. They are 1/4'' square
