Default Dynam T-28 jolly roger scheme completed

Just finished my Dynam T-28 in the jolly Roger scheme and i also painted the gear doors grey and added aircraft number to them. I also added the VF-84 markings. I will be adding one more thing to the nose.

I love it when people take time to take an ARF and make it their own. Any signifigance to the 091? Not a typical navy plane number. She needs VF-84 and a ship name on there.

I'm either going to get good at flying em, or get good at fixin em!

VFA-103 is based out of NAS Oceana, where my SIL works fixing Hornets.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VFA-103

If you really want to be original, paint your plane in the colors of VFA-143, the Pukin Dogs.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VFA-143

The insignia was supposed to represent a griffin, but the Squadron Commander's wife said that it resembled a pukin dog, and the name stuck.....

Just found this if you decide yes on sliding cockpit, doesn't seem too much trouble. Process is at Post #9.

I may give it a try the T-28 canopy is made out of flimsy plastic not sure it would be a good idea. I need opinions on the airbrake linkage i was going to use a servo with a stiff pushrod then make the single pushrod into a double like a goal post so that it connects to two control horns on the airbrake so that i have a little more strength when the airbrake is deployed. I'll have two control horns on the airbrake on the left and right side of the airbrake I'm not sure if it will work.
