Re: (A couple of) Top Flite Giant P- 51D Kit Builds

Hi
I thought I might share this with you .

I bought some scale exhausts for the Mustang . I,ve received them today . And yes , it,s worth it . Nice addition to that scale look . I also ordered the filter covers .
This is very , precision , clean work . I,d really like to see someone drill 32 holes in such small pieces . These are the same parts that you see in one of the photos that I submitted .

Glad I ordered them

Michel

Re: (A couple of) Top Flite Giant P- 51D Kit Builds

Hi
And Good Morning

Well it,s not really a challenge , it depends on you're budget for this project . I,ve done the moulded exhausts , many , many times . And , no matter how hard I tried , I could,t get them to have an appearance of the real exhausts , So I,ve gone this root , this time around . I believe , that it,s my last giant scale WWII WarBird , so it,s really just a little change .

Michel

Michel

How's the build coming along? I'm trying to get the wings sheeted up soon, but I'm back at work until the 23rd. When I get back I suspect The wings will be done shortly. I'm pretty excited to move on to the fuselage.

Re: (A couple of) Top Flite Giant P- 51D Kit Builds

Hi
And ,.... good evening

I,ve started the engine mount . The plans call for 8-1\8 inch , From fire wall to prop hub . The plat of aluminium that you see will be trimmed out in the centre . Two spacers of hard wood , will complete the height . With this set-up , I will be able to remove the engine , with-out , removing the fuel tank ( to get at the mounting bolts ) , as with my ARF version ( which sucked ) .

Hi
What you might find interesting in one of the photos , is the lever mounted to the throttle arm . That lever is double-bearing mounted .000 play . When setting up the throttle servo , it makes life a little easier
