Glue the 1/4 l/e to lower sheeting and rear spar to its lower sheeting, easier to handle it all this way for me, pva on all joints...wait to dry then build wing.

Pretty much agree with Martin, looked to me the top table would not only look at it, but sort it out, difficult to move from BMFA as things stand, but if the wills there it can be done.

Is LMA membership without their insurance available ?

If you are a BMFA member then no as that offer is not available to LMA members from the BMFA it is as simple as that. As it has been stated time and time again you have to be a BMFA member to be in a BMFA affiliated club, and as some one has stated there are around 800 clubs affiliated to the BMFA. If you are not in one of the 800 clubs and don't fly at any BMFA clubs, then its up to you who you get insure with.

PS... On the large model theme, which as also been thrown up. I will state again, you don't have to have or be interested in an over 20kg model to be a member of the LMA, we don't fly these models every time we go flying. Most of us if not all of us fly so called club size models (whatever size that is) normally. I manly fly small electrics.

I would like to know, how can you "look manly" flying small lecky models face 1

I was on holiday some years ago in Cumbria when my Triumph Spitfire MK 1 started to make a dreadful whining noise. The noise came from the dynamo roller / ball bearing as the outer case was rotating in the dynamo housing. Fortunately in those days I always kept a set of tools in the car boot so I was able to dismantle the dynamo. So the bodge I arranged was to use some Gillette razor blades as shims to prevent the unwanted rotation. The dynamo was easily checked by linking both terminals with cable to one battery terminal and the other terminal to the dynamo body. the dynamo then ran as a shunt motor. To ensure that the dynamo charged up the battery it was sometimes necessary to reverse the dynamo field direction by flashing the battery across the dynamo terminals with the dynamo disconnected.

The car with a 4 pound Sea Trout on the bonnet!

Must be annoying Andy

One of our members had a claim and he didn't follow proper procedure, however he spoke to the BMFA and help was given, and the claim was paid out promptly.
