|Thread: Sir Ken Dodd|
Saw him a few years ago when he did a turn to help a local school, did'nt shut up for 2 1/2 hrs. Brilliant. Will be sadly missed I'm sure. Go well Doddy.

Where have they gone
|Thread: Allergic reaction|
Hi chaps me again. First off thanks to all who posted replies. After reading through all the posts and giving it some more thought I am quickly forming the opinion that my problem does not lie with the aliphatic glue but more with balsa dust. It would appear with advancing years one becomes more susceptible to more alligies etc. It's something that has never bothered me in the past but is now another obstacle that comes with age. Once again thanks for all your replies and interest shown.
Regards Chris Whalley
PS Has anyone got a deep sea diving helmet they don't need.😃😃😃
Hi chaps, after many years in the hobby I have recently started to use Aliphatic wood glue and on a couple of occasions have come out in a rash on my forehead and cheeks. After much thought and deliberation I can think of no other reason for this but a reaction to the glue. From what I can remember it has only occurred when I have used it.
In forty odd years of aero modelling this is the first time this has occurred despite all the other glues and materials I have used. Also I have had no change in general life style that may have contributed towards the problem.
Right, after all that my question is, has anyone had a reaction to aliphatic glue?
Regards Chris Whalley
|Thread: DB Cirrus Moth build|
Ref your aileron conundrum, full size go all the way to the tips, that's the way I did my DB cyrus moth, they were fairly easy to do. Yours is looking good keep up the good work
Regards Chris Whalley
Dwain you may remember I put a photo of my cirrus moth on this thread early on, I would definitely build the wings before you attach the cabanes, they will aid greatly in the alignment. Don't ask how I know!!!
Hi guys, silver solartex for the wings and tail surfaces, white solartex for the fuz brush painted with humbrol no. 14 (French blue). The decals are indeed from DB S&S, they went on a lot easier than I was expecting using soapy water and a credit card to squeegy the surplus out. The engine will be a Saito 56. Speccy 6 channel radio with a servo in each wing. Just ask if you need any more info.
Regards Chris W
Not to far off now, tail end, engine install then cockpit/pilot and windscreens
That's better, please bear with me, I have a lot of finger trouble with iPads and the like

|Thread: Time to change car|
If they do ban diesels there's going to be an awful lot of vans and hgv's going spare!!!
I have a VW Tiguan, had to fetch a 6 x 3 fence panel in it, just failed on length, width ok, I tied the tailgate down, aok, seats were laid flat, very quick to do.👍
|Thread: Any recommendations...fiction|
If you like medieval murder mysteries try the Bernard Knight Crowner John series, I found them a good read, nothing heavy. Incidentally Bernard Knight was the Home Office pathologist who did all the gruesome stuff in the Fred and Rose West case. Read the last of the series last.
|Thread: Do you think some sort of registration system would protect the hobby from rogue flyers?|
It would be like trying to register car drivers who already adopt a responsible approach and pass their test and tax/insure their vehicle. It's the ones that don't do these things that are the problem on the roads. Membership of the BMFA is akin to these things for aeromodellers. So no I personally I don't think any additional registration would do any good. That's my two pen natch said.
|Thread: Biplane or Warbird|
2 wings and a propellor, perfection. I'm on with the db moth 60.
