Shame the F-20 never made it into production. There would have been some great scale schemes to dress these up in. I love the Navy aggressor F5 schemes which would have been awesome on an F-20.

Thanks mate,

Yes, they are both at the CA Science Center. I've never been there. PM when your coming to Ca.

Cheers, Gary

A.S.

A bungy (or spring) and a lever on the inner mains doors might work for a simple/light method to close them. Don't know when I'll try it though.

Speaking of F-20 wheels....... Since we're going with a light setup. I'm omitting the brakes.
I'm might see if I have some plain bushings to replace the ball bearings in the wheels.
