Dave Platts, Maurice, not the D though, i can build it no problem but can't do the detail that makes em special, i built Brian Taylors ? 601/4 inch one a few years ago, and let a mate have it to finish. Sports jobs n film finishes is my limit.

Gubbins i have would be for 1/4 scale...Meister one is nice smiley

Bit more progress today 3/16 stringers on the fuzz instead of the 1/4, might make it easier to pull the rear end in, i don't fancy the ammonia route, ready to join up when dry. I've been given a Slec jig as well wink

Holding the strings down on an acoustic i have no problem, on the electric it's difficult...what number strings would you's recommend ?

Thread: wish list...if only
23/02/2017 18:10:15

Would be this for me, i've had most of the ones i love but never this one, i have the plan and the gubbins for it already but lack the ability for a good scale job, i used to have a mate who'd do the finish if i built it. sad

I've noted the errors that've been pointed out by you lads Tim yes

I agree the engine tells you when it's ready, different ones have a slightly different start up procedure, never used a stick myself, sometimes a glove on the big ones, position the prop so your hand go's away as you flick and be confident when doing it, they're like Dogs any nerves n they'll bite you dog

All good advice and i've followed it all, practice,practice, practice, just like flying...unfortunately just like flying some never get it, and i'm one of them where music is concerned ...sad

I'm pretty good at "twinkle twinkle little star" though starwink

I hope the changes have shook things up a bit, but good teams win for the same reasons changes or not, Renault are sounding pretty bullish about their engine and Honda are saying "we don't know" Ferrari..who knows ? I expect the Mercs to be given a better fight by the Redbull lads. And no Bernie this year.

Very nice, Chris. Are those the DB S&S decals?

This is the version I hope to build. Not sure about the scheme, but it is different. I have a Tiggie fibreglass cowl and the idea is to make a hatch at the front so I can slide the battery in under the motor to get it s far forward as possible. Hopefully, no lead will be needed.

I reckon that colour scheme looks very classy yes

That looks very nice work Tim, i've a few dural u/c's so no bending for me.

Marked the fuzz out for the formers, 2mm trebler for wing seat and 1/4 sq for the top, not a lot of fun cutting ply formers out is it crook
