Like you I can not either, in any case it is more fun Building "Bolloxing" it yourself. lol! and if it flies well or crashes then you can say "I built that" Bravo

Hi Gary
I had to pin the hinges on my p40 using the same method that Phil suggested but I used cyano to fix em!
I pushed them into the pre drilled holes while the glue was wet other than trying to soak it in!
not lost a flap yet! Angel

Hi Keith

I too have used the Phil cocktail stick pinning method and can see the belt and braces idea behind it.
The holes were drilled and then the sticks dipped in cyano and rapidly popped in holes then trimmed  Bravo cant see them coming adrift  Bravo

I'm a bit confused.......First picture shows all servos up the same way, last picture shows throttle servo upside down?? Same plane or an wee mistake during construction??
Also, I hope your servo eyelets are inserted into the grommets the correct way.......Flared end against the wood, not under screw head??
Looks nice and tidy Gal!! Very Happy

Hi mate

Yes had to change servo around as the template I  used for drilling out for throtle linkage was different to where the OS throttle linkage came through  Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed
I knew I'd trip up somewhere Ian but well spotted mate  Bravo 
The model is going together well though and soon to be complete so more pics to follow  Picture Picture Picture 
You started that Tigercat yet  lol! lol! lol!

Oh and eyelets against wood too  cheers

Tigercat not being worked on again yet (I did start it about 2 years ago but only got flaps and one wing completed!!  Mad  )

I'm currently getting a Kyosho Aurum Minix (small 25 engine pattern model) airworthy, then, maybe, just maybe, i'll continue with the Twin 'Cat Twisted Evil
