|Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI|
Well, I`m going with the Bryant plan that is 1/6 scale and 60" span.
At this moment I´m thinking of building Two models, one Mk 1 and another of the Spanish Fury as I`ve found some good infomation.
Will be interesting not to duplicate any tareas as the spinner. I can made a few carbon or fiberglass ( free of charge) and send to an address in UK and from there picked for the recipients.
Danny are you interested in pick an order of spinners?
This is "my bill" of materials for the Fury Mk I.
Main stucture; 3/16 x 3/16" médium balsa (6)
Side and top longuerons: 3/32 x 3/8" médium-hard balsa (20)
Sheet balsa:1/8" (1)
Sheet balsa 3/32" (1)
Harwood for central Hood. 3/8 x 3/8"
Harwoowd for motor mounting 1/2 x 5/8"
Spars hard balsa (pine?) 1/8 x 1/4" (16)
False leading edge from 1/8" sheet
Leading edge from médium 1/4" sheet
Sheeting for "D" box médium 1/16 sheet (3)
Capstrips médium 1/16 x 1/8" cut from 1/16" sheet
Ailerons from 1/16 and 1/4" sheet
Wires and tubing
Stab suport aluminium 18 swg.
Bracing for stab , piano wire 20 swg
Landing gear , 8 swg (1), 10 swg (1), 16 swg and 12 swg
Cabane struts from 10 swg
Brackets for rigging brass 20 swg
Bracing of cabane and wings piano wire 18 swg
Of course you will need a pair of wheels about 5" in diameter and hinges for the tail. Also some fiberglass board for the aileron hinges and horns.
Well, err... Yes I have made a bill of materials as I have metric Wood in stock.
I have ordered all the Wood and metal I will need in the construction of the model. I can post a list if anyone is interested.
The front of the cowl matches the plan. It`s 98 mm in diameter,
I have made a carbón spinner .
I´ve made a silicon mould of the aluminium spinner and have made a carbon one to cut at the desired diameter

Great info about the fasteners. Received the Wood I ordered (I will need more of a few sizes...) Also have the 5" Willians Bross wheels.
One Question. The flying wires are round or flat? I have some flat rigging wires from Mick Rives.
P.S.: I have a book over planes in the Civil Spanish war. There are a history about the three planes that arrived to Spain and the fouth that was built with the parts of the deceased 3. It contains drawings at 1772 scale. Not as detailed as the Westburg. I´ve scaned them.
AMAZING WORK have you done with the plans.
Hi Martyn I`ve send you an e-mail with the magazine articles.
The spinner I`ve received is the old one, bigger than the cowl. In the begining I wasn`t going to order it but the discount is over the full kit, so I included it,
I can use the spinner to make a carbon/fiber one with a ply backplate.
I`ll check the plan ribs you comment. Probably I`ll made the wing in three parts with the center (top and botton) attached to the fuse permanently.
Good morning. Yesterday I received a parcel fron Sarik.
I went for the full kit they offered. Now that I have the plan for the model I can check the size of the Wood I need for spars and longerons. I use metric wood, but have some in inches from previous models I`ve built. I`ll check if I can adapt some size from inches to metric.
At this moment I don`t know if it will be electric or i.c. (Glow or petrol). More to come when I study the plan.But in the last six years I only has been flying electric models.
With the kit is included copy of the articles published in RCSI 2004 (three parts). They explains the building and modification of the cowl (a new one) because the part is shorter than in the full size.
That`s all for the momento.

|Thread: Airsail Auster Aop9|
Hi, ZK, Um!. I havn´t decided on scheme yet. BUT I`M A GREAT FAN OF YELLOW (Pipers, Beavers,...), so probably will be Yellow or like yours, White-Blue. I have a few pics of both planes (No interior ones) from airliners.net.
I`ll begin construction next month, finger crossed, because I have to finish two sailplanes first.
Keep the good work.
I`m also ready for building my Little one. I bought it a few years back and cudn`t work on her.
I began aeromodelling with a rubber band powered AOP 9- (Flat fuse) that my father built for me. He used the Wood that he had on hand, samba (like obeche).
Reading your 1/4 built.
This saturday I went to the flying field for maidening the gyro. Assembled the rotor and made a range check. All Ok. At this moment arrived to the field a few vehicules and tell us that they are waiting for 9 paramotors. They are making a travel (raid) from Los Palacios (Sevilla) to Sanlucar (in the coast of Cadiz). In a few minutes began appearing and landing in our strip. The take a minutes of relax and refuel the paramotors, eat something and chat with us. When they leave our strip I begn spinning the rotor and added motor. The gyro displaced and make correction with ruder. I think the rotor didn`t manage top speed and after a few trys the giro lifted and fall to the left. (Too much left trim ?) When I retrieved the gyro I noted that the pushrod of pitch was free. So the hops has finished for the day. At home I dissasembled the gyro and the problem was the servo horn. Its broken at the screw hole (center)Also changed the ESC and servo horn (Hyperion carbon reinforced) and assembled ready for new try. Find attached a few pics of the day.
