hi I started building and flying large scale gliders about 4 years ago. because of the very hi cost of 1/4 and 1/3 scale gliders can be in the 1000s of £ I started to build them my self from epoxy and glass carbon as I built sailboard in the 1990s so the skills are nearly the same. carve the fuz out of foam then glass it. so far I have made 8 from 4 meters to 6 meters . so i am one for building.

Roo I love you but, you are not traditional building, you are cutting edge.

Thread: Quarter Sawn Balsa

Different cuts could make a huge difference when Balsa was harvested from the wild.

But I don't think there is much difference in the modern plantation grown Balsa.

They have just announced a big investment in Vauxhall vans at Luton. A new medium van for parcel deliveries, production to go on to 2026.

Thread: Wing dropping

I always carry a few copper roofing nails and knock one or two into the wing tip if needed.

Thread: The plane that saved Britain
16/04/2018 20:12:08

The only trouble with the US Merlins was they would not fit in planes made for British built Merlins. And Vice Versa .

15/04/2018 23:53:20

The American planes were on Lend/Lease. At the end of hostilities Britain had to pay for serviceable equipment but not for irreparably damaged stock.

Bit of an odd reply Don...I have neither suggested that you hadn't driven a Leaf, nor have i ever mentioned solid state batteries!!. But if you want to see a real dud, look out for SUVs with two wheel drive.....Utterly pointless!!. Although very amusing to watch in the snow.

Land Rover have offered a two wheel drive version of the Discovery and Defender for many years. In fact I had a Land Rover (basic type) over forty years ago that had front wheel hubs that could be disengaged for town work.

Camp coffee?...face 7

I remember Camp coffee from the war and after, real coffee when it became available was a revelation.

Sad thing is my sister still drinks Camp.
