    Authentikit additions and paint job

    Hi All
    As some of you know I have been trying out the Authentikit replica spitfire controls . I decided that the 3d printed parts looked too clean so I decide to put some of my model weathering experience to use on the throttle quadrant , and trim wheels . In the pic the weathering looks harsh , due to the closeness but it is a little more subtle in reality and I am pleased with it , also I added the the chassis lever to the collection , a but have not weathered or scratched it up yet I paint the handle knob, and center screw in bronze , but will try a more brass effect after seeing some archive pictures

    Chassis lever finished now weathered up nice, JacksMaxx says I should go the whole hog and get the spade grip , still researching it though I am not entirely sure of its strength ,not the way I fly my spit anyway. It is a consideration though watch this space for it

    Hi Jacks the resistance for the quadrant levers ,mixture , throttle, airscrew are good they are set during construction , and can be to what ever the builder feels is good for their own use. They are adjusted in the hall sensor as I said during construction using nothing more complicated than three screw adjusted to suit. The trim wheels are set in the same way . the chassis lever is spring loaded , and gives good movement from the lever, and the little mechanism showing hydraulic idle when undercarriage is either up or down

    Hi All
    I am undertaking another epic Authentikit build this time the rudder peddle mod for my MFG Crosswinds, when I say epic I mean it this is a two day print for each peddle . Also I am printing out parts for the flight stick , flaps lever , and gun sight when all complete I will post completed project . Up to now I am impressed with Authentikit

    Nice!

    Been watching Authentikit for a while and am waiting for son to get 3D printer to have a go.

    Good selection of control types for CLOD aircraft and and seeing if future Mosi dual one can be used for Welli.

    This project definitely looks really impressive.

    Ok Rudder peddles done what a great addition , slight issue with the right peddle out of alignment slightly this is more to do with my MFG’s they are old and a little wear and test has made the irregularity. But I will adjust the positioning of the peddle and this should rectify the deviation . I may try and print a larger toe brake stop as well as there is slight movement in this too. 734BD235-37EE-4EAF-A6A5-E691F3878D88.jpeg
