Got my replacement gear from FMS... Sure came quick and they sent me a pair of them... These new ones do not have the sensor, or it's lead, or the hole in the case where it came out of like the old ones have...

Well I got them in and they sound good... I raised and lowered them easily 15 times without a problem and they sounded stronger than the original's if that's possible...


I have one gear though that hangs just a breath hair low when retracted and the door touches it and keeps it open 1/8"... Is the travel at all adjustable within the Transmitter's travel or trim menu's, or does the stock sequencer handle all travel...? I know a shim will fix it but if travel could fix it I'd rather do it that way... I didn't want to try the Tx travels if I could risk hurting the gear...


Thanks...

There is no travel adjust on them, and nothing in the adjustments in your tx will help.....the shim is your best option

Looks pretty dang snazzy there partner. Good job. Tip:....the imside of the main doors are usually silver...not zinc chromate....but the inside of the wheel well will be zinc chromate.

Now, I appreciate all the effort that goes into detailing the paint on a model, and I don't want to offend anyone's efforts.

It just seems to me that the panel lines are always way over done. I've looked through a whole heap of photos of WW2 era planes and in most cases the panel lines were barely visible. You could see them, but they were very faint. The only lines that stood out in most cases were the ones immediately behind and in the airflow of the exhaust stacks. The others were not black, they were grey/white from oxide buildup or salt spray.

Anyway, I do think everyone's planes look great, but maybe just tone down the black panel lines a bit.

Cheers,

Steve

In defense of the panel lines I think that when modelers go to detail and weather these foam kits they are working with what is there. On the majority of these kits the panel lines are grossly overdone. They are way too wide and deep.
About the only thing to do if your going for a more scale look is to fill, feather and refinish the entire model. That can be a project unto itself.
