The struts are Robart's, the kind that fits the landing gear wire (1/4 inch) into, secured by hex bolts.

Sorry, I don't have photos of the pants while they were being made. The pants are...

Thanks Flyer! The pants were made of balsa wood and plywood on the sides, then they were fiberglassed, both inside and outside, the part that goes on the top were made of fiberglass and carbon fiber,...

RE: DeHavilland Mosquito

I believe you're right, I've just noticed that the fairing of the nacelles on top of the wing is different, specs state this wing to be foam sheeted with balsa, fuse seems to be pretty much the same...

RE: Hangar 9 1/4 Scale Piper Cub ARF???

Hi Bill, by watching the videos it seems to me that you're not doing a proper take off run with the Cub. I've flown many J-3's and they all need to build up flying speed with the tail up in the air...

RE: Bashing of the Kadet Seniors
