I want to depict my Fujimi A-7 while taxiing on the carrier deck. While searching the internet I found only a few pics which show the A-7 taxiing with the nosewheel deflected. And this is where my question came up. The one pic I found of a A-7 taxiing with wings folded up and nosewheel deflected to turn a corner, does not show any deflection of the rudder, while the few pics with wings extended show the rudder deflected in correspondence to the nosewheel. My question is if there was some kind of mechanism which prevented the rudder from deflecting while the wings were folded up. Usually the rudder deflects during taxiing when using the rudder pedals and only the nosewheel steering had to be manually activated by a knob on the control stick, at least for aircraft of that era. Thanks Michael
July 14, 2011: I re-released the sets a few days ago and they sold like hot cakes! Sorry if you didn't get one before they were gone. It will be at least a couple of weeks before I get more vacformed canopies in stock at which point I will re-re-release them and update this thread. __________________________________________________________________________________________ The kit will include corrections for the canopy, nosecone and intake (Whoa, deja-vu...). Still in the 'roughed out' early stages and in need of tweaks and adjustments... Anybody have good references for the canopy internal frame details? I have 'Lock-on no.9' and Concord SLUF I've found these sites with walkarounds: http://www.primeportal.net/hangar/a-7_corsair.htm http://daytonipms.com/Walks/A7D_files/A7D.htm and ARCs walkarounds... 1/32 YF-23 is temporarily on hold... :( :D
