    Yes….ignore where the hole is, its not important, its only for you to feed the fuel lines through. Centre your mount using the lines marked on the firewall, it will give you the correct offset so your cowl lines up correctly.

    If you look at the markings on the firewall they are already offset to the right…..all you need do is centre the engine mount on those lines.

    Regarding the tank, I would look for another rather than carve up your model. Dubro tanks are very good and tend to be wider and flatter than normal. I have a few of these so measure your cavity (?) and I’ll measure the ones I have.

    I wondered why there was no video on Friday and Covid 19 did cross my mind. Get well soon mate.

    As mentioned on the live show, I was  building a 1/32nd scale Mustang inspired by Chris’s Old Crow

    I bought the heli for the same reason as you suggest and I’m just starting to play with it after many hours on a simulator. I built it from a kit rather than a RTF and while the build was easy, programming the Beast X gyro cum flight controller that it comes with was, er, interesting….!!. Maybe if I’d had a 10 year old to help me it would have been easier. I’m using a training landing gear with it and so far so good.

    Hi Chris

    I hope you get the sequencing sorted out for both the lights and the gear….the gear looks amazing.

    I’m pretty sure the full size only has one landing light….in the left wheel bay.

    Been looking and it seems that the P51 had one anti col light behind the radio mast on the top rear fus and one on the rudder facing rear.

    Another interesting video Chris. Building a large (1/5th or bigger) scale P51 with working everything is on my modelling “bucket list”……. 🙂

    Sorting out the wiring/radio installation on a model is my favourite part of a build and I like your attention to detail…reminds me of me.

    Your talk about lights got me thinking about what the general lighting arrangements on full size are:

    Red and green navigation lights – on the wing tips that are constantly on
    Anti-collision lights – top and bottom of the fuselage which flash, white during the day, red at night.
    Landing lights – come on constantly when the landing gear is selected down
    Taxi lights – can be selected on to aid ground manoeuvring.

    Keep up the good work and stay safe.

    Yes , like you I have many RC aircraft, perhaps too many. Learnt to fly years ago while in the RAF (tarmac runways…luxury!!) but never took my A Cert which proved a pain when I tried to joins clubs in civvy street. I didn’t fly for about 15 years then found a club where you if you could take off and land 3 times you could fly solo. Turns out RC flying is like riding a bike, once learnt you don’t forget and after a few weeks getting back into the groove, I took and passed my A cert at the end of last year.

    At the moment my hanger is full off mainly electric foam models, Riot, Ruckus (bought after watching your YouTube video), Riot XL, Wot 4 etc… but I also enjoy balsa bashing and I’ve got a few others in the pipeline. Radio wise I’m a Spektrum man currently using an iX12.

    Airframe technician. Did time on Vulcans, Bloodhound missiles (don’t ask!!), Wessex helicopters and finally 15 years on Tornado F3. Got to say you did the right thing walking away if they didn’t have what you wanted…a lot didn’t and lived to regret it.

    Your welcome for the information. As an ex RAF aircraft engineer, my head is full of that kind of useless information….. 🙂
