Just wondering if anyone here has done a Saito Gas Conversion.
I'm sure many of you have so here goes.

I just ran my Saito FA-100 with the Morris Mini Motors Gas conversion kit. Both are brand new. Did the timing @ 30 BTDC and used marine gas w/ Klotz oil @ 20:1 ratio. Fired right up. Kept the rpm's @ 2000
for quite a while, increased to 3000 momentarily, back to idle for a while, up to 4000 for a split second, back to idle. I idled it most of the time @ 2000. Some smoke but not that much at all. Throttle transition was good as well.

So here's the result after 1 run of 1 tank (8 oz.) Engine ran fine but I noticed a lot of black soot around the muffler and upon removing it, needless to say found more of the same in the exhaust port & valve. I pulled the plug & found that coated too. Piston looks OK, just a gray color.

Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Please advise.

Well it flew....and flew well! Let's just hope the landing gear modification is strong enough.

Well after a year+ assembling, sanding, glassing, more sanding my P-47 TF Giant Scale took to the air.

Sierra Retracts required a total remake of the gear section of the beautifully sheeted wing. That took a lot of time measuring, and remeasuring - and I think it worked out.

That was after I found out you can't fit the retract unit into the wing.

I don't know how many coats of primer was applied - I do like sanding -wet sanding that is. The wing came out like a starved horse.

After glassing the entire plane, panel lines were added as was rivets - too many to count. Used revets from Chad Veich - an excellent product. Also added 'panels' here and there from him.

Tried Klass Kote for paint...tried new spray gun - didn't come out too well, so much of the silver was sanded off leaving a nice primer look. That left a nice war weary aircraft that was flown by the Mexican Air Force in the 50's.

Used a DLE55 up front and it pulls the plane around just fine. Not too fast, not underpowered at all.

I just applied some decals that I think make my Cub look more real and cool as well....scale airplanes are fun to make and this one is not the exception

finished applying rivets (finally got the glue mix right), assembled the plane and it looks fantastic...also added a locking system (pretty easy) to hold the window open (not for flying though) and also got 2 videos of the lights working...

Glued the window and now both window and door can close....i made it close tight cause some people said that the window and door tend to open mid-air.

I got some details: control sticks glued and functional, removable velcro seats.

Handmade seat belt (took me 2 hours) glued and fully functional, as well as pilot ready to fly....added a life vest as souvenir in the back of the cockpit too.

throttle levers installed, seat belt mechanism, headset, flap lever ....haven't glued the right window yet....maybe over the weekend

i am planning to apply decals maybe next week and therefore making it look more scale day after day...hope you guys like it..

as you can see, i love scale details ....more details coming soon

Finally assembled cowling, prop and spinner. Getting the cowling to fit nicely took me 1 hour adjusting it....pain in the neck....it sure looks nice and ready to soar the skies....choke rod visible

I decided to go full scale in terms of the antennas, black one is a long range 5G and the white one is the COM one....some comments would be helpful and rewarding....also tried installing some scale rivets (screws) but i would love to get them 1 mm smaller though..
