RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Just curious, are you going to do inner gear doors?

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

OOoohhhh, I didn't read that far ahead. I should have. I didn't realize that the aft fuse block and the former 9 had to be trimmed to allow the wheel to retract all the way. That makes a heck of a...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

I looked and the f-8 former is already 3/16 of an inch forward giving me more room??!! And I still don't have enough... As I look at the elevation plan, I see the wheel sitting inside the f9 former...

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

RE: Top Flite Giant P-47 Build

Hey Gary, I have a serious question for you. My tail wheel won't go down. the spacing between F8 and F9 is too close together, but I built it according to spec (formers are 90° etc), and now I've got...

Hey Gary, I see that tiny model you have in the lower left of the first picture (just the wing). Is that what you used to get the panel lines? Where did you get it, anyway? That'd be a great thing to...

I ALMOST epoxy'd my fin on wrong last night! Fortunately, when I re-read the directions I caught the one liner about making sure the fin is flush with the stab. Could've been really bad. How do you...
