thanks very much GCplane. still going through some of the threads listed on DogFly's thread, including the Skyraider conversion. i noticed that on the Bearcat conversion he uses the same LG mounts. that's specially helpful to know since i believe that may entail most of the work and i was spending most of my time wondering if folks used some other plane's LG mounts.
i appreciate the material. i am considering giving this a shot in a couple of weeks when i have some vacation coming up.
