after playing around with various airframe options for the new JetCat P-20 I have decided to start building on a TamJets F-16 in 1/12 scale (below videos helped me a lot to make up my mind ) and plant the little turbine into this model.
- Cut gear doors - Install Retracts, doors and cylinders
I first tried to cut the doors with a saw but had some issues with chipped paint so I switched to a hot knife which worked much better. Although my version of the F-16 was already from the new batch (with some additional re-enforcements to the retract mount), I decided to add one more layer of carbon to the front of the spar (to much I guess but it looks good….kind of…… ).
I also added the additional block to the wing mounting area (although it would not be required).
Gear door hinges installed and air cylinders fitted (the nose door cylinder comes from a TamJets Gear door install kit, the main cylinders are Airpower 12mm stroke cylinders).
