I have been working on this scale hydro project for a while it is getting close to prime and paint.
Looks awesome Phil!!
I like it Phi!
Be careful of the wing braces that mount to the transom with the clevis's. When your wings come off, the piano wire swings down into your prop. Then it's a real mess. Been there.
I put 2-56 balls and cups on the ends. That way, the piano wire stays with the wings.
Nice work as usual Phil
Yea thinking about using some nylon screws there and on the verticals
Really nice work! Very, very clean installs.
I hit a wicked hole one time that sheared the 4/40 nylons at the top of the uprights and the horizontal rotated behind the boat on the strut rods and the rudder blade skewered it right through from top to bottom and was sticking an inch out the other side. How the hell that is even possible is beyond me.
I use nylon for the tail feathers.
Yes there are problems of all sorts, I have to believe in stronger is better, but still light, I can use the wing for launch handle HA
I have the parts ready for a coat of primer, waiting on a bit warmer day this week.
Not too much hanger rash to coverup.
Who made the nice rudder bracket
That was a Andy Brown part not available now.
Bummer nice looking scale part
I think there was a guy in Germany??? reproducing CMDi hardware.
Think Mark Sholund was handling it over here.
I have the Seattle U37 mostly done just some details to finish up.
B&B Hardware I think check the NE-Stuff website
Very Nice Phil
Never heard of B&B. Who makes it?
I normally use Speedmaster and Octura hardware myself
B&B Hardware out of Sweden.
The best available in my oplnion.
Not sure if he is still making it all
anymore or not? Not many wanted
to pay for the extra quality here in
I have my U37 ready to test Friday at Evansville In. Race on Saturday
Dont break it.. I might want to buy it..........
HA dont think so took me too long to get er done.
I do have a slightly used Timex,,many laps on it, few crashes, few got it run overs, and few ran them overs. 10 years old may need some touch up on the paint.
