  • 1/72 Revell Gato dive planes mechanism

    I posted this picture on The Subcommittee Facebook page. I examined other peoples solutions and modified them somewhat. Basically this allows a simple forward and back motion of the front servo to rig out the planes without having to create a circular motion beforehand. It needs refinement, but it does work. Using larger gears seemed like a better idea, but I was able to accomplish the same movement with a lever and gear combination and a shorter throw. Hope this helps.
