Hi,

 

After a quick check on the upper side of the fuselage it seams to be drop and fit.

I will check it again accurately and I will update this post accordingly.

Thanks, Eric!

Anyone want a set of Flightpath etched exhausts? Going cheap......;)

 

the Flightpath set is very well detailed, the only drawback is having to fold all those parts

No, the only drawback is the FP sets have the peddles the same length as the Tamiya plastic ones that are 3/16" too long from the bend to the end.    

 

As for the incorrect issues with the KA sets, they are in the burner tube, flame holder, and the very back of the nozzle.   What was missed it the taper into he burner tube and the resulting diameter of the tube being too small.   Tamiya got the taper correct on their 1/32 F-16 T-bird kit which has a PW Exhaust.  the tube also needs to fit into the back of the nozzle 6mm to take the enlarged burner tube.   The smaller burner tube also gives you a rear fan and flame holder that are too small in diameter, at too flat in their detail.  Also, pw 220 and 229 flame holders are completely different.

Hi everyone,

 

I took few minutes to assemble the upper and lower part of the fuselage to check the fitting of these exhausts and I do confirm that they are drop and fit.

They are just a little bit smaller in diameter as the real one are.

 

Just perfect.

 

Eric
