Well Done! I bet that it sounded sensational too.
|Thread: Fokker D8|
I think that the Veron one came out in the 70s. That looks like it. I do not remember any other Fokker DVIII from those days. Wheels look right too and I don't think anyone else was making vintage wheels in those days.
|Thread: Timís Grumpy Tigercub|
Just found that I bought only one because they are out of stock. Rude words!!!
Just bought my undercarriage legs. Hope the model will be the right scale"!!"
It was those U/C legs that reminded me of it. If you look at the pictures on Google you would swear that it is a flat four Saito.
I just found the aircraft that uses three levered suspension units.It is the W-01 Brouček. A Czechoslovakian home built and exactly the sort of scale model that I like.
Now all I need are the three views from Aeromodeller
Always glad to help.
I can't go to the detail that many do. I do "stand way off" scale
Just let me know and I can scan the drawings and email them to you.
I do wish that I had done that myself. Don't know why I didn't
I have excellent scale drawings of the Tigercat, Nye or Wylam, can't remember which but they are equally detailed.
A little cosmetic work on the turtledeck would make it even closer to the real thing.
It will look good in military markings
I LIKE IT.
I like those under carriage legs too.
Darn it. Back in the early 70s I had a three view of a light plan that used three similar legs. I even started making them on night shift. Can't remember what the plane was now. I must go through my old catalogues
|Thread: ED MK IV|
Just for your information. Diesels do not run nearly as hot as glow motors. As a result you can solder up exhaust stacks from tin plate and even use soldered up silencers.
I had a tinplate stack which had strips soldered on which wrapped round the cylinder and was bolted together at the back. It kept my KK Scout control liner clean. The engine? An ED Hunter or Mk IV

I see no reason to run it on any special propeller unless you just want to be totally vintage. A modern glass 10 X 6 is perfectly acceptable.
Of course you could use a vintage prop but I do wonder if the plastics of those days might not have deteriorated over the years.
If you want wooden props J. Perkins list a Master 10 X wood prop for £3.75 plus many other sixes.

Matt, It doesn't matter if there is a crankcase leak on a four stroke. They have a breather pipa anyway.

And we thought that 1984 was bad, that was kindergarten stuff.
|Thread: Fokker D8|
That is great. You should see it easily. Like the pilot too

What is an I phone?????
|Thread: Speed story|
Cymaz deserves the credit, I just posted the link as he asked!!
I had heard the story with variations but it was great hearing the actual pilot telling it
I hate to admit it but more often that not I have messed on the first settings of a V tail
