RE: TOP FLITE CLEVIS

that is what I thought, but I bought 2-56 which are too small and 4-40 which are too big. I checked my instruction manual and it lists the pushrods as .074 where the 2-56 are .072 I think. I may be...

TOP FLITE CLEVIS

I am missing a couple of clevis from my P47 kit. The clevis' are for .074" rods, and I can't find that size at my LHS. Any one have any sources for that?

Thanks,

Ben

RE: My first kit

That is a good idea for the torn away look. You could probably run some wiring and junk to make it look more detailed. The canopy was easy, just scratched in with my knife.

And the theme from Heavy Metal is exactly what I...

RE: My first kit

the idea was the plane is supposed to look very old (skeleton pilot), for two reasons.
First I thought it would be cool to try to make it look 50 years old and secondly, the...

RE: tfgiant p-47 decals

Didn't have the fus letters with the .60 size either. I just printed off my letters and traced them into frisket paper and sprayed very easy and much better looking than decals.

RE: Question about TF P-47 wing sheeting

I had just the opposite problem when building my P47. The center jigs touched the surface but the wing tip jigs did not. So I seem to have a little too much dihedral and you have too little. I was...

RE: YS experts need help

Shaun

From what I have learned from this site when you fill the tank the vent line has T off it stopped by a fuel dot and when you fill up you just remove the dot. I hope I understand correctly

glassing p47

I'm about ready to glass my .60 TF p47. I have seen both .5oz and .75 oz glass recommended. Of course the .5 oz will save on weight but do I give up a lot of strength or is the difference negligible?...

RE: tf p-47 gear install

I just installed the same retracts and I used wood screws. I also added some more strength by adding more wood under each retract brace. I will also add some glass to all joints.
