I am also about to start building this same kit. I have had it on my shelf for a couple of years, but other projects were on the line ahead of it. The kit is not as scale as I would like it to be, so I intend to do considerable bashing. I will try to install scale ailerons with their peculiar bellcrank system. I will also use pull-pull cables on both the rudder and elevators.

Re: Balsa USA 1/4 Scale Neiuport 17 BUILD


Where did you get the info/pics etc to see how the origional had the bell cranks & pull-pull systems done? I'm not planning on going too nuts with the details but I would like to have it look decent when finished.

I have received a kind offer from a friend to do the flying wires for me so thats should be a great start. Would like to find info on other scale details though!
