Retracts for Tom Hunt's Beech 18
Well, the pace at which I'm progressing on this model can only be described as "glacial," but I finally got the landing gear in and working. The mains are Robart 600s, driven by a Cirrus CS26BB; the tailwheel is operated by a Robart micro, powered by a Cirrus CS21BB.
A problem that still remains is how to operate the gear doors on the mains(I'm not putting doors on the tailwheel). The doors will be cut from the vacuformed nacelles, but I haven't been able to come with a good way to activate them. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Tom, if you're out there, what adhesive/paint/surface prep do you recommend for the plastic parts? I've been using Tamiya acrylics, and would like to stick with them--if they'll stick to the plastic.
