Whilst each aircraft has its good and bad points, it was the sum of the whole that helped secure victory and the aircrew that flew them.

Any comment be it positive or negative on a service or item can be considered endorsement/advertising to the person who reads it. If a posting becomes blatantly one or the other I think we can rely on the moderators to jump in with both feet and remove it.

Generally any comment we see is considered opinion or good advise. Jon's comments are both of these.

Hi Andrew

Some times aluminium tends to cut dry and bind the tap. A squirt of WD40 is usually enough to lubricate the thread and prevent snapping the tap.wink

Apparently more fatalities are due to the humble kitchen knife these days. Its not the object that becomes the weapon at the time, its the idiots wielding them that is the problem.

Hi Richard

I am looking for electric retracts for a twin I am building. Been following this thread and noted the good opinion of those you supplied . Could you give the spec /model number/retailer. My twin should come out around auw 5kg or hopefully less.

Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI
08/09/2017 19:08:47

Been reading your posts with interest. Regarding converting the plan to cad, i had a quote from a supplier for a 65" model twin @ £127+ vat asking fellow modellers I was advised this was reasonable for the work involved. Not sure if that gave the rights to the conversion as well. Also advised that the conversion is not always accurate . Decided to go the traditional route and cut the parts myself and ordered the wood instead.

Sorry chaps business is not and never has been run on philanthropic lines. If the ship starts sinking first one to the life boat is not women and children.

Majority of millionaires in this world have left a trail of destruction behind them.

Them again I am on old cynic.
