I would appreciate that very much. Do you still have my information from the F4U wheels?
David Duckett, Comment for image # 3880610 Jun 17 15:20
I have the main ones, molded from those on an Avenger, if you want them.
Don C, Comment for image # 3880610 Jun 17 11:31
Measured from plans: Main 1 1/16", nose 7/8". Calculated from real sizes to 1/24 scale: main 1", nose 3/4". That leaves a little wiggle room. Thanks.

Sizes?
Don C, Comment for image # 3880609 Jun 17 16:15
Tried Hobbylink and Squadron, but can't find wheels. Anybody have a different source?

totally agree - she MUST have wing tanks...the ones you have fabricated are looking very good

Thanks and I appreciate the suggestions. Neither plans had the wing tanks, so I'm working from drawings and pictures. They started out pretty good, but weren't at the proper angle, so... I think once they are attached it won't be too tough. The cockpit and canopy will be another story.

Looks like a shadowy stealth night fighter!

looking GOOD!! love the early NavAir jets and anything Grumman is an allstar anyways.

The jet looks Beautiful! Those inlets look like a challenge. Again such a key focal point and signature feature of the F9F..have you any 1/8" square balsa and some round toothpicks or fine wood dowel? I would build them out with balsa and attach the dowel as the leading edges of the inlets - then putty and sand to shape. I know you didn't ask for suggestions and I apologize in advance if I crossed a line. I'm sure whatever you decide to do, you'll make it work.

My inletting really sucks.

They look round - to me.

Silkspan, 4 coats of dope sanded with 200. Starting to look like an airplane.

Started shaping the wing tanks. Round is an overrated concept.
David Duckett, Comment for image # 3873704 Jun 17 07:00
Thanks :-) I've never seen a live one.
Don C, Comment for image # 3873403 Jun 17 21:16
Thanks, Ray. Got the wings silkspanned today and started the wing tanks. As you know, each step can bring up a new challange.

They really do look like the Thanksgiving pictures. This guy hung around courting a hen in the yard for an our or so. For DD who's never seen a real one.

Don, that's some awfully nice work. I've been doing some foam building and it will NEVER look as sweet as wood.
