I also mounted the servos...regular MG90s. I have had pretty good service from these little metal gear guys. Looks like the factory mounted up the nosegear bracket at an angle, so will have to straighten that out tomorrow. Just taking my time, checking out everything as I go along. Fun build so far.
I also added some thin pinstripe to the edges of the red and blue trim just to give it some more definition. I did this on my MUS and it came out well, so thought I would try it here. So far it's looking nice.
Thanks again guys,
Wing tabs loose or MIA seems a common thing.
Mine was missing one all together, not in the wing, in the box.....nowhere! Ended up having to manufacture one.
