    Airbrakes came together pretty good.

    These new JR servos are really nice. SBUS compatible, smooth start just like my favourite Futaba BLS. But these have no buzzing even at max load. Silent. Really tight gear train. Not sure if these gears would last better than past JR Servos on a vibrating gasser, but should stay mint for years on a jet.

    Sandro was at my table at Wingham & mentioned that he couldn't decide between the Playboy version & another so he just bought both. Looking forward to watching how 1 goes together.

    And here I was afraid you wouldn't have a new toy to play with this month.

    Of course you have to have the Soundtrack to TOP GUN playing in your shop the entire time you are building this, right?

    The F-14 is my second favorite jet after the A-10 of course.

    How much more Bling can you add to that plane? The Ordinance Package in your pictures looks insane!.

    Re: Skymaster F14 Fully Loaded!!

    Been working on the Slats for a number of evenings now. Nice design but poorly built and poor quality. Had to do a lot of work to get the CF sliders to operate smoothly. Then lots of planning to install the pair of control horns. Then lots of work and measuring to cut the access holes.

    Would be super easy to screw up a wing or two here and have the linkage visible when the Slats operate. Instructions are useless. No guidance or dimensions or cut templates.

    Each wing calls for a pair of Savox 1250’s. For now I am using the equivalent MKS9767’s from my stock to get geometry right but Sandro has ordered much higher torque MKS747’s which will make me feel more comfortable.

    Outboard servo Complete. Inboard tonight.

    Those look awesome, I’m guessing you slowed the servos down? Nice n scale
