It will be my G38 that was in my Cristen Eagle with a reduction drive I believe the firewall does not need moving backwards for that set up?
If you need any photos or measurements let me know. Happy to be snappy....
Now, about this detail thing (lack off).......... MudsPS The offset Tony Clarke Reduction Drive is 175mm from firewall to face of prop driver.
Well.............. true lengths of the undercarriage piano wire would be helpful cheers I guess 1/4" piano wire is enough for the axle. I cant decide whether to make 2 axles with pivots on their ends (centre of axle) or a single axle pinching it in the centre same as I did with my SE5a this way if a bungee does give way it affords you a degree of suspension still but does rely on the 1/4" axle being able to bend.
ref detail......... none other than a pilot if I can get one and a home made gun nothing else it's purely for me to get some experience with building handling and flying 1/3rd scale, any detail will be in the Bristol Scout maybe later this year.
quick and dirty no scale detail at all 1/3rd scale (scale or size?) Sopwith Pup.
Much better than what's shown on the plan. Si
No problem with 3mm clevis Shaun. They will be fine.I would still use twin wires on the rear ones with the single on the front ones as per full size. Its only two more wires to make after all.Si
The rib that carries the interplane struts was slimmed down more so it didn't show through the covering. Whilst on the 'making you do it more scale thing', are you farting about with the rear end too? Sectioned tailplane, gap under the fin etc It takes little time and makes the model even more practical since everything is removable easily.Ian.
Was just looking at some detailed pics of the Sopwith Pup at Shuttleworth and it doesn't use double streamlined wire bracing, but single cables only. Just thought it might save you a lot of work? Regards,Tentpeg.
............... much easier for servicing and maintenance Ian.
What's that then?
I didn't mean it that way, but now you mention it Ian.
