Sure looks nice wear your at its cold and snowy here. I started to get mine back in shape. I had some bent strut pins and damaged front strut. Lookin forward to getting mine back in the air. I plan on putting a cortex gyro in it.

.....cold and snowy.......
Well I live in the mountains of Western Colorado, it would be freezing and light snow here too!
The actual flying was done during my semi annual visit to Mesa, Az the week before the Arizona Jet Rally. Nice long runway and much lower density altitude for maiden.

You could try Ed Dobias RC Crafters for the Skyray nose strut. His is custom work and will be a few more $$$, but the quality is excellent. I have a set of his Mirage mains for a JHI Mirage and they are great quality (no offshore pot metal), and quite scale.

This gear set was built for Chris Wolfe who is building an old Frankel kit.

I just picked up a 2nd hand unbuilt ARF, but there were a few things missing that I'm wondering if anyone has they would be willing to sell. I need:

Wing tank mount pylons, color doesn't matter (I have tanks, just no mounting pylons)

Cockpit tub or scale cockpit

Half-circle ply support that installs above the turbine

Please let me know if you have any of these and are willing to sell.

Thanks in advance.

Are these throws still good? I ask as my elevon hinges are tight and I can only get 10mm of down travel (up is ok at 20mm).

Managed to get a scale cockpit and tank pylons from Hans in Canada. Also fabricated my own turbine mount rails and the cross brace.

Got all the servos installed, and decided to start working on panel lines. Got the top of one wing done so far. Still need to paint the elevons white (already did the rudder). The panel lines were drawn in with a charcoal pencil, then feathered with a short-bristle detail brush. I will put a coat of dull finish over it to protect the finish.

The Swiwin 60B will fit in there nicely!

Looks like you can move your pipe back quite a bit

Yeah, everything is just sitting in place in the pics. Nothing is secured down yet.

Great to see that there are still a few airworthy.
just got a used one recently and will prepare it for the next flying season.
Great shape but could go with a new canopy hatch , if someone has one available please let me know.

Thanks

Florent
