Vince, that makes much more sense to have the lines coming out the top of the tank for less leaks. I'll do that.
For the landing gear, even though it will be a little heavier, I think I'm going to get some 1/16" aluminium and make the landing gear the plans call for. I just think it looks a lot cooler than just music wire.
Cracksmeup, I use the same thing for my foamy plane's control horns. I have a stack of old gift cards on my desk right now just for that reason. I made a template that I glue on the cards that let me squeeze 8 (I think it is 8) good sized control horns out of the cards. I thought about using those for the MM, but I decided against it. It will be my first time to buy control horns
