  2. www.Scalemates.com is your buddy when searching kits. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/planet-models-plt142-pt-19-cornell--113491 I assume this is a resin kit. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/sierra-scale-models-48-25-fairchild-pt19-cornell--861306 This one is a vac-u-form kit. C2j
  3. With a radial engine, cowlings are typically mounted to mounts on the cylinder heads at the front. Some are further mounted to a "ring" further back. Remember that the cowling is usually attached to the engine and NOT the airframe. That way the engine / cowling combination can shake and vibrate. The Vega cowling was constructed in two halves, split vertically. There is very likely a piano hinge with a removable wire holding them together. Look at these two pictures (click to enlarge) and you can see pins with safety clips around the cylinder head areas (the pins protrude through the cowling and have the safety clips on the outside behind the gold stripe ) holding the cowling to the engine. at the rear you can see stand-offs that keep the cowling centered at the rear. They probably rest on rubber pads on the inside of the cowling. Hope this helps! C2j
  4. Read the text that goes with the pictures. C2j
