35 Year Airline Mech Retired

I Think This is Funny! I asked Aros about 3 weeks ago if the landing lights were suppose to work since mine didn't and after getting a yes on that I just blew it off and did not think any more about it. Since I am waiting for new land gear and am out of commission I decided to investigate. This is what I found. I guess some one on the assembly line got out of sequence and put the wires in before the wing spar was glued in.

fuselages.

Aros - if you are going to talk to FMS about a scale prop how about asking them to do an alternative cowl and a matching 3 blade ? That's not too much to ask for is it ? PLEASE.
This may not seen too important to you Americans but tell them they are cutting out a lot of potential NZ AND British customers !! Besides it looks better anyhow .
The pride of ALL Corsair pilots was this

I agree the scale 3-blade looks every bit as sweet as the 4, but the problem is, this specific model is a F4U-4 Corsair which used the 4-blade. The 3 blade was for earlier variants like the F4U-1D, etc...

But I'm definitely pickin' up what you be layin' down my man.

I have gotten almost all my planes from SN. They have great customer service, they ship quickly, and generally have spare parts. I have had nothing but problems with BH. No customer support or parts. Delayed shipping and so on.
And they have 1 grey 1700 left as of yesterday. And they are V2.

Hey have you seen where BH has stopped free shipping. The 1700mm F4U now cost $38.00 more for the shipping.
