Very cool cockpit. Let's see a pic of your rudder.
Cut access hatch above elevator this allows for bellcrank mounted to cut out in elevator center.
The black lines in elev. are carbon rods filling a slot that I made to fit plastic tubes for rudder control rods.
The control rods end with Quik-Links attached to a cut down Servo arm (HS-50).
The white arm seen sticking out of the main rudder is one half of the arm, the rest is buried in the notch cut on the inner rudder face.
I mounted the servo arm to a cut down mini ez connector epoxied to a small carbon flat then epoxied the flat in the notch.
I used a longer arm piece to attach to the rudder surface.

On the photo's I see that you use a kit for the interior,, or it seem like it,, what is the plastic kit compagny and what is the scale size of it that would fit in the GWS "HOG",, or is there a plastic cockpit kit who would fit in the GWS A-10 ?,,, that would look nice in my "HOG" ,,,

Hey there,,,

Thanks for the tip,, 1/18 size hey,, I'll try to look for it here,, and for the gear, well,, I will be over weight if I add that too,, I will have to wait and see how much weight I will add with my inner fuel tanks I want on,,

I maybe gone start today shapping that foam for those tanks,, I'll go with what I got on that,,,

And about your building,, where are you at @ this time,, ? and how scale are you going to go with that A-10 ?,,,

Be a good men,, Be a "HOG" driver !
