You need the aluminum servo brackets, unless they changed the internal wing structure, I'm guessing they forgot to include them in your kit.


This is one of my aileron servos, does your wing have the ply tabs in the servo bays? If so you need the brackets, you could make them, I have many in my parts bin left over from other projects.
Thats what has me messed up. I got the metal brackets but no tabs in my wings to attach them to. Damnit

What if I epoxy bracket to servo door? I could even put a craft stick/popsicle stick between the bracket and servo door. Yeah, talked myself into doing that.

Anywhere inside the fuse that you want to I guess. I just used a plug.

I have the mortal remains of a crashed Top RC P-51 that I was going to rebuild but have changed my mind. Before tossing it into the trash I though I would see if anyone needs any spare parts. The rudder is good, both horizontal stabs and elevators are good, the canopy and hatch are in good shape although the cockpit detail took some damage (fixable). I think the inner clam shell gear doors are good as well as the spinner, which is not bent up at all but does have a few scratches/gouges from hitting the gravel. Just FYI, the airplane was repainted into a camo scheme so the parts no longer have the factory finish. Anyway, just thought I would throw this out here before hauling the mortal remains off to the dump.

Hi Chad,
Sorry you crashed your P-51.
I'm interested in the mustang's canopy and latch. My latch broke off and I can't find one that matches the original.

Thanks!

Wasn't my bird Sonny! It was a friend's and he gave me the mortal remains as I was considering a rebuild bit it's too far gone for economical repair and I have too many projects on the shelf anyway. Somebody else has already contacted me about the canopy/hatch as well as the inner gear doors and the spinner I'm afraid. If he decides he does not want the parts I will be sure to let you know but, at this point, I am pretty sure he is going to take them.
