|Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI|
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.

Mine will be maidened this saturday, wind permiting. All is ready to roll. José Luis
Hi there. Finished the cockpit area. Made a balsa mould and using a bottle (Empty !) made the canopy. It`s a bit scratched, so I didn`t put a pilot (a flat one).The balsa mould. Finish sanded and ready for making the canopy. A Canopy in a bottle ! The canopy and the pattern. Translated the lines frrom the balsa to the plastic canopy. Glued the canopy. All ready to roll. I`m having problems with the posting (I think is I.Explorer 10).
|Thread: Revolver Pusher type Autogyro trainer|
Hi Richard. Also following your progress. Nice. Will interfere the motor with the servos? José L.
Hi. I`m still here.
Finished profilling and balancing the rotor blades. Only missing the canopy (ouch!).
Find attached a few pics.
Finis sanded the blades. Glueing the ply reinforcements (nderside).
Cut the profile of yhe blades in the root.
Fiberglass reinforcement of the blades (top).
Actual status. Missing the canopy. I`m thinking about a few variations.

Hi Allan, Two posts above from yours Richard explains the shim issues. Initially if blades are shaped per the plan no shims will be needed but no hurts. In my photo-build you can find any issue your looking for.José Luis G.

Well. Begin making the tool for making the blades. I`ve used sand paper with self adhesive of 80 grade. I`m shaping a blade by day, so I will have the 4 blades for balancing on the week end.
View of the jig for shaping the blades. The sides are 3 mm 5 plywood and the base is pine. All fixed with glue and screws.
Work on the first blade. Note the step in the balsa. The nose strip is hard and dificult of shaping.
First I made a pass along the lenght of the blade and next make a second pass for refinishing and checking the form of the blade.
The piece of ply with the sand paper attached. The top is 3 mm ply (hard on the hand), must be thicker for working more comfortably.
