No problem Andy, I'll drop you a pm when I get a moment as I need a little guidance as to a few things on the C130

You're not allowed to build it until you finish the AC-130!

It will be built alongside ..... Did you find the plan you'd done previously Andy? I was hoping to chat to you at the Avro museum visit about it.

Clearing a space on my workbench this weekend to start build when available. I've already chosen my colour scheme. Airfix kit purchased to so that I can have a handy reference to hand.

And I may manage it on time this time !

Box openingI've finally opened the box!!! Reading back over previous posts to try and have a straight forward build.

Shortage of Haribo's here in West Wales, so have subsituted jelly beans and a fine merlot......... this build may take a while. Inspiration

Nice postie delivered a motor to me today, along with the servo reverser. No excuse now, will be starting this weekend. Also, found something very much like a half eaten haribo in the bottom of the box..........

Thank the lads

Think myself and my lad will make it; always been a fan of Avro.

Even if it;s a 9 hr round trip! ( and he can now share the driving lol )

Finished work at 6.15; popped into local store (Haverfordwest). Plenty still there. So no excuse now to commence building this weekend.

Looks ideal for balsa/ thin ply.

Edited By Flyer on 27/12/2017 21:31:46

Any respecting modeller wouldn't be without them.....Inspiration providers!!

Aha, so that's what I'm doing wrong lol. will pick up several boxes tomorrow then, in readiness to tackle the flaps


01/02/2018 19:20:53

Having gone through my busiest month in work, I am aiming to open the box properly this weekend. To be honest, the flap arrangement looks daunting, but the result you guys have already shown make it worthwhile.

I'm a little intrigued to see an almost full haribo box next to Graham's rudder.......... laugh

Thanks guys, very useful input. I used the Tamiya tape on my Skyhawk straight lines, and it was very good. I am hoping to do a tiger pattern with soft edges, so I will give that tape a go.

Just about to sort out what I need to spray up the Mig 29. I remember seeing somewhere that some are using a foam based tape.

Would this be the sort of thing ?

Thread: Mig 29 Colour schemes
17/01/2018 22:03:19

Been perusing the internet for suitable schemes for my 1/12th scale Mig 29. Think I've no settled on this one. Not easy to replicate, but should give a little contrast for flying off the slope.

Hope to get to a few events this year, and to fly one or two (or more) new models.

Must get back to building !

See you on the slopes devil

Looks good Cymaz , just shows what a little bit of lateral thinking can do.

Looking forward to your flight report

I have a couple of old legs off a trainer. I will make up a mock when the tail wheel arrives. if it doesn't look good then I will abandon the idea...thanks for the feedback.yes

I'd go with the front leg off the engine mount Cymaz, as if you fit a tail wheel, the delta may well catch the prop once the tail lifts; by using a longer leg than the radius of the prop, you will at least get yourself off the ground. With the sort of power you using, you could always hand launch and just use a taildragger configgeration for landing.


13/01/2018 21:37:15

I'd be tempted to leave it as it is Cymaz and land it on any grass adjacent your tarmac.

But, if you persist, could you fashion a front leg off the engine mounts? Is it a built up wing ? For the mains you could use the sort of set up used in Trainers? Bring the legs into the main 'box structure' and use clamps inside to retain them.
