I will have a C model coming and will be doing a build thread here so keep an eye out!

Also while that arrives, I am going to be building an F-86 1/5 scale, another F-14 and F-16 1/5 scale, all Skymasters great products. The table is busy and I will be posting Skymaster progress pictures!

Anton,
Any more pics of the inside of the F18F?
Is the fuse a sandwich (thicker than the hawk )? It looks like it from some of the photos.
Any shots of the servo pockets? Leading edge?
Rudder linkages?
Thank you,
Dave

Looking good Anton I noticed you even put the twin rudder toe in with your flaps. It looked a little harry, it almost looked tail heavy in the videos, any insight on to flight handling with the flaps and flaperons at the same time?
Also does this version have the large speed brake option? Thanks

oh wait i noticed of the aileron wasnt down while the other was on landing, that may explain all the pitching around

I seriously doubt they would make a gear set for the C/D when its close enough with the E/F gear. I am guessing this is why they scaled up the C/D model.

But when they take a couple people out everyone will be all "oh well", while we would be asking why there isn't a 3 mile exclusion zone around where this happened. Then we'll have politicians asking "why does anyone need to fly those things?!" and we're done.......
