engine mount

Hi Guys,
I'm new to discussion groups, and need some help.
I'm trying to find info on the engine mount used on the F-15.
I'm sure it's here somewhere.
Any help ?
Also, I wouldn't know where to look if someone did reply ?
Thanks,
Pat

Too vague Pat, try another Forum for mind reading.

Now then, which particular F15 did you have in mind?

You could also try the Search facility on this Forum.
Clue : look a few inches the to the right and a few inches up.
It's cunningly disguised as "Search". They think of everything these days.

Hi grumman1 and welcome to the EZone . You'll get the hang of the discussion groups in short order, just search around a bit and you'll find all kinds of interesting information. Pusher jets use either a firewall mount or stick mount depending on the design. Like electrotor said, let us know which plane you have or are building and we can point you in the right direction.

Thanks guy's,
I've built 7 balsa kits and this is my first scratch built foamy. It's Steve Shumate's F-15 Eagle Park Jet. I have a Superfly that the engine is mounted on a stick, but it seems real chezzo. I have full size plans, and construction guide for the F-15. It fails to say anything about the engine mount other than there is one.
I guess I'll epoxy a balsa block with a light ply piece on the end and bolt it on.

Now we're getting somewhere.

You need the build manual.

There you will see the stick mount in glorious colour.
Happy building.

Ah Ha !
I have the build manual. But the lovely color picture doesn't give the dimensions or the material for it. I did find it on another of Steve's sites. It has a diagram of the plane which is missing from the plans and the Build Manual. It's 3/8" sq.x4" hardwood. Now all I have to do is find a woodpecker to tell me where to get it.
Thanks for your help.
Oh yea! I've been to Bonnie Scotland. I have a Geordie friend from Whitley Bay. We went camping in Scotland up north as far as Ft. Agustus. No nessies in sight.
Regards,
Pat

If your local hobby shop is worth is worth anything it should have a suitable piece said hardwood. In fact it doesn't need to be hardwood. Balsa is botanically a hardwood but that's another story. A piece of pine or birch will do just fine.
Camping in Scotland eh? It's a while since I risked that. Rain clouds seek out campers and our midgies are specially bred to sniff out southern blood.
