    Does your fuselage have flap handle? If so they are way different, they also have the big gas tanks, BC and f19 were 6 gallons. If you were to build a set from scratch, it will take a lot of work because there are almost no parts available because they built almost no f22's built. There was a set of flap linkage for sale on here a few years ago, the owner was price higher than I could afford, he wanted 1500 for the brackets and linkage because he was converting his to an experimental...shrug

      thanks for the reply
      The plane does not have flap handles. So are all the post war wings pretty much the same?
      thank again

        Yes, the BC12&F19 wings are the same. The F22 is a totally different animal, it has big tanks, like 18 gallons per side, and flaps. If you have a true F22, there should not be provisions for a header tank either. Did you get a dynafocal engine mount with it? Please post pics of the airframe, maybe we can spot differences between it and other post war models. Tim

            Well Paul, I see a 65 style header tank it does not have the boat style indicator and a sealed cap. F-22 would have wing tanks only from what I have seen, you would also have toe brakes with cast aluminum pedals from the one drawing I used to have, I think you have a mix of parts or at least some of an F-21/22 or later with some early parts grafted onto the airframe? The instrument panel is an early one with what looks like an A7 magneto switch. I have not figured out what brakes you have, seems like they are hydraulic calipers with some type of heel brake actuator, are they mounted on straight axle shaft gear? I don't know what the tab is for. Hopefully someone else can chime in, maybe an antenna mount?

              F-21 wing is same as F-19 except it has slightly taller spars. F-21A is quite a bit different more like the F-22

                That is not an F-22 fuselage. Everything up front is wrong. Shouldn't have heel brakes, header tank, or that instrument panel. The door jambs or wrong for F-22, they are wider. Should also have a more conventional style seat like a 150 too. Start looking for the serial number on the door hinge.

                  The tab is for a panel light.

                    I didnít think that it looked right, maybe an f19?

                      Looks to have hydraulic disc brakes...possibly a conversion?

                        No, F-19 has toe brake as well

                            So it's a bit of a hybrid.

                            I guess the logbooks would make interesting reading, eh?

                              it is listed experimental, so it looks like i am the proud owner of a bit of a mutt. the seller called it a F22 so i went with it. i like it all the same. It did come with a 0235 mount. The big thing is get the wings done and fitted,. i will check on the serial number on the hinge areas. is there a specific location that is more apt to have the number?

                              thanks again, you have all shown a keen eye and knowledge of the Taylorcraft
                              thanks
