    SO nice to see this one come together. I have two in my stash...can't wait to start. I have too many on the go right now....trying to finish this F-100 for a group build for the Nats, then my Boss 302, a 416 Sqn Spit, A 429 Sqn C-17...ugh. Cheers AFM

    The current Hornet gear was an option when we bought them. It was designed for field landing and it suited the CAF needs. It would only require 17 ft/sec drop to meet our type of landing. The other type was for carrier style landings and are abit bigger in the circumference allowing for a greater than 17 ft/sec drop for carrier Ops. When the US Navy was still having issues, the redesigned MLG Oleo (and other design changes not obvious to the naked eye) involved a larger diameter and inverted style. Inverted due to the size increase and the ability to fold up inside the airframe. Canada did not op to get this versions the cost was ONE of the mitigating factors. Cheers AFM

    I now have tried both and am not convinced to use one or the other. Like you said, weird. I go with what works for me that day.

    I think you may have a small niche market for those panels!! A suitable market found could help fund your resurrected your hobby! Maybe even customize it to include modern ac for mbrs leaving the Unit or Retiring! Cheers

    Thank you sir, but I have to admit, I am forcing myself to go very slow. I too just want to slap it together, paint it and shelf it...NEXT!! But I wanted to make something I can really be happy and proud about. As after, these will be given to my kids as a small momento of their dad (me).

    Issues Posting on the forums

    I link from post image, just found that there was a few instances where I would have some issues. seems to be cleared up. My process had not changed when issues occured. What really puzzled me was I could not come back into ARC. This would vary from a few seconds to several minutes. It would time out, and then I would wait, then would reattempt with the same results. Waited a day or two then it would be okay. Hard reset to my laptop and shut downs would not make a difference. I am wondering if the latest windows update had an effect, there has been some known issues with that update...dunno- back to modelling.

    Some under LEX work, I didn't have enough fingers to get this to fit as well as it can; therefore more putty...but was an easy fix with some custom cut sanding stix.

    Listen Kids...these issues that are missed due to slacking off and day dreaming during the dry fit process will lead to a path you don't want to walk down. This is all user interface errors - PEBCAK - Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard. Thank gosh it's only on one.

    Here are some user interface errors. Learn from my mistakes, this happens when not checking during dry fitting.

    Here after I glued the #1 fuel cell spine panel back on I noticed the panel line was off. I simply sanded down and will re-scribe later. Leaving a very faint line behind for reference to re-scribe.

    After glueing the top nose section to the nose assy I had some filling to do. Easy fill with Vallejo Perfect putty, cleaned up with a moist Q-Tip.

    Some updates, almost done sanding the four horsemen Hornets. Here I show the nose to fuselage assy. I did not glue the upper nose assy to the nose fuselage; I glues the main assys together. This allowed me to make final adjustments to the aft IFR probe area. This was the best way I find as to allow final fit, one area at a time. I then glued the upper nose piece to the IFR probe assy.
