RE: 3 peice Corsair wing

I don't do anything complex except build from scratch and make up my own three piece wing with spades and box channels made on a CNC machine for a 125" Corsair. I guess thats not as complex as...

RE: Ziroli 124

I cut the front of the cowl out and cut about .75 lbs. It turned out that it was 1/4" thick in spots. With a little more sanding it should look pretty good for my first try at it. The second picture...

RE: 3 peice Corsair wing

Did you read my post? It doesn't sound like you understood what I said. I said they wouldn't work!!! The wing will have to be composite and hoolow like the Byron Corsairs and then the joiners will...

RE: 3 peice Corsair wing

RE: Ziroli 124

Dave,

I am thinking that very thing over now. I have to pay off some other debts first but then the engine will come. I do know it won't be a high maint. radial though. I love them but I like...

RE: Ziroli 124

Bob sorry but that is the end of the center section. It has to stay put. Thats where the outer panels join the center section. I finally got my baby on her own legs today. Here she is. Just a few...

RE: RE:

Good to see that Annie made it accross the big pond in good condition. I sure want to see mine and her up close next to each other. I'm steadily getting closer to the glass and finishing phase.

RE: Ziroli 124

My new issue to deal with. Since the wheels are so big there isn't room to put a faux rib in place far enough away from the side of the last rib of the center section so I could use off set hinges. I...

RE: Ziroli 124

I installed all the airlines except the gear doors so far. I also installed the sequence valve, servo and #3 air tank in the wing. Here is what it looks like. The air cylinders are the gear doors but...

RE: Ziroli 124

Been right here just lurking in the shadows steadily working on my beast. The retracts are in now and look good. She ****s 15 inches from the table to the bottom of the gull portion of the wing.

RE: Ziroli 124

Gary,

Never fear I will make gear doors work on this plane one way or the other. I don't give up easy. Have you gotten around to fussing with my radial yet? No hurry just curious.;)

RE: Ziroli 124

Gary,

Yes but then the strut doesn't come all the way down and will bind and cause damage. If I adjust if just a little it will not really do any good. I'm calling Darrell Monday to see if he...

RE: Ziroli F4U Cockpit Help
