Why not glue them on? That's what I did on my Yellow Spit.

My guess is that regardless of how you secure them if you have a gear up landing you'll break the radiators.

Question Tom, what are your plans for the elevators? Carf has a single servo driving both halves and that makes me uncomfortable. I have lost one plane before with a single servo setup. On another plane, I have had one of the servos in a split elevator servo setup show signs of failure. (Thankfully I caught that one)

My old spit has the stock system. my hellcat had also the same. fact is: if one servo fails and it does not stop in neutral, you will not make it to the runway. so, no matter if one or two servos. it all about beeing lucky or not :-)

also got this amazing exhaust stacks. for the moment i cant use them because my silencer is too big. not enough space on the right side, but i will go on with this later. not its important to get ready for flying season.
this exhausts will be avaible from Kolm for Mustang and Spitfire.

Yes, I have the install kit. It looks like it will be very straightforward once I bring myself to cutting the whole front of the plane off.

Tom,
It looks like if I cut off from here forward I should be really close to where the new firewall will epoxy in. Of course I will leave plenty of extra before I make the final cut. Does this seem right to you?

Nice work, I love the tail gear!

I have a question Tom, Iím going through all the parts and the motor mounts. The vibration mount and the standoff when put together has a gap between them. Looking at the diagram doesnít indicate a washer going between,

Am I missing something here?

Interesting

no you did correct I think. But itís easy to fix. Just shorten the winds a bit. Then it will fit perfect.

Yes, that is what I will do. Everything else in the install kit seems to be spot on.

Thanks!
