Please... call me John!

 

I didn't sense much play in the angle of the flaps when I did the dry-fit.  I'll see if I can get the pin orientation as you describe but I may have to settle for what you see.

 

 

 

Hi John, 

Maybe this can help a bit:

For all Luftwaffe FuG 16 ZY radiostation application you can use this PR16 antene (just for checking size and shape):

Thanks Johnie!  I can play around with the shape of the loop some more.

Good show, John.  The whip antennae is twisted wire.  Just sayin'.

 

Sincerely,

Thanks Mark!  Yes but maybe the reduction due to scale makes wiring strands less visible.  That is how I am approaching it.

Thanks Radu!  I understand how the skinny tabs are "supposed" to fit.  But the friction due to the width of the flaps prevents this orientation on some of them.  I'm just aiming for a uniform deflection for all four flaps and not overly concerned with maximum deflection.  I'm assuming that intermediate positions between fully open and fully shut are possible based on photographs.

I can't help, that's a beautiful bird!

Of course it is possible on real plane, but as Radu will probably confirm, model is designed for fully deployed or fully pulled in flaps. Problem is the pin on the flaps sides. The position of those pins for half ejected flaps should be somewhere in the middle of the rail.

Thanks guys! I'm still in the procrastination mode and filling the time with some of the final small details.  The loop antenna was redone to fine tune its shape and also so that it is oriented vertically when mounted at an angle.

The plastic radar array will be replaced with this Master brass Neptun upgrade.

Very easy to assemble.

Mounting to the narrow stalks on the plastic part was very dicey as it was very difficult to drill the necessary holes. I was barely able to manage it.

I'll shoot this with primer.  If the joint is too messy, I'll have consider re-doing the connection.
