hello Shaun or anybody else that knows,
im looking for some yellow F15 replacement wheel hubs and brake assemblyís. I have a air leak in my wheel hub, probably somewhere on the rubber inflatable brake. I can hear it leak when Iím rotating the wheel when I apply brake pressure. Any suggestions? Also Iíll be out at BITW Thursday-Sunday.

Would someone mind measuring the below dimensions on the noseleg?
Ive bent the noseleg in a heavy landing and need to make a new one in my lathe.

dimension a is what Iím after, or even total length of the leg.

Your paint job looks GREAT!

Gary,

We do stock the tanks and pylons. It's about $120 a pop for a tank/pylon setup. That includes the release mechanism which can either be remotely controlled or manually (like mine). I do like the Ultra Precision products. Once they're set up, they're pretty much a fire-and-forget affair. I'm glad you're gonna get back to work on yours!
Shaun, how did you make the smoke tank out of the drop tank? Did you line it with something or insert a tank?
