Hi Doug

I have sent you a PM.

Thanks Nik.

I went into a bit more detail in my Spitfire build log here.

Pages 6-7.

Hope that helps.

Sorted out the Aileron and flap linkages and fitted the retracts:

The lighting changed between shots hence the yellow looks different colours.

Hi Doug.

Thanks for your kind words. I also follow others builds and am always learning.

Not quite ready for the maiden yet.

I'm happy with the build so far - will see how/if it flies!

Are you going to do a build log of yours?

I could probably sell you some of the parts - which bits are you after?

Got a little bit sidetracked with building myself a laser/CNC cutter.

Back on the Harvard now.

Installed the elevator and rudder servos.

Made some control horns using the new CNC cutter.

Just a thought - you have got the 3S version of the FMS fan and not the 4S version?

Hi David.

This is what I use:

I got it from Amazon about 4 or 5 years ago. Cost about £15 and works fine, in my opinion.

Hi Goth.

I did ponder over that for a while but decided not to as I was glassing the model - I may regret that decision!

Started the paint job:

Had to stop because it started to rain - typical!
