I have deviated a bit on the Undercarrige. I have some old used Legs from an ARTF (demised Seagull Edge 540) so have decided to rework these.

Paint has been stripped away and bend altered in line with the plan and then a second bend. Yet to finish these and I have not yet decided to repaint or not. I will not be adding the extra spreader bar as per plan as they do not need it.

LPP, I was thinking along the same line as you and will probably go with another post suggestion of a spacer plate and nylon screws so as to avoid fuselage damage in the event of a poor landing.

Todays progress. Sorting the throttle link and servo. I have mounted the servo on a removable plate. No real issues.



I have decided to make top hatch as per plan. Dubro 10oz tank is a nice fit with room for a battery if required.

One of my pilots (actually destined for a Tiger Moth) checking out the cockpit for size. The seat back rest from an old Warbird will possibly be rehomed in Renaissance.

Hi Pete, noticed you used one of the swivel fittings on the throttle servo. I used the type with a bolt through the fitting that attaches to the servo that let's the assembly swivel easily. Problem I had was that the bolt head wore through the housing and I lost control of the throttle, on the up side I found that I had 18 min run time on a full tank. Not easy to check for wear in that area, but I do use the throttle a lot when I fly, worth keeping an eye open for wear on the fitting.

Great build blog 👍

Hi pete, nice work. Can i ask the scale of the pilot? I thought about 1/8th possibly.

I think he is 1/8. He came from DB Sport and Scale (unpainted) and I added a bit more lower body so he is taller than supplied. He is destined for a DB Sport and Scale 58in Tiger Moth (if I ever finish it) so I may well source another pilot for Renaissance.
