Well as it's my birthday in a few weeks time I've made my wish list and sent it up the chimney. I know that's what we do for Christmas and I know that I've got a wood burning stove, nevertheless I thought it was worth a try.

Graham ,

I think you would be better off with the smaller La7 as it works so well in electric form . Might have to deal with that separately at a later date.

Anyone out there that wants a big La7 better put their hand up . The last batch was in 2011 !

Not likely to get a second go on that basis . Dont want any "grizzlers"crying on the phone after the boat (aircraft carrier) has sailed.

Guess I won't see one now

Well, thanks to jrman I will soon be in possession of an LA-7. So my winter project will soon be queued up in the workshop, just got to sort out a new motor for it now. Jon, are you listening?

@Richard - retracts to suit incl oleos and any other bits for the build?

Trying to keep you listening, Jon isn't!

The retracts will be the same as the 110 , as will the oleos . The machine shop is on shut down at the moment but when they come back I will order some more units . The only other item we will produce is the decals .

So far , nobody seems to be posting any pictures , so I can only assume we are a long way from retracts and decals .

Hi Richard, for a change started backwards with the wings first, adding a 1/32 ply strip to the bottom trailing edge as I found that with my usual hamfisted approach to loading the car the trailing edge of my small la7 got damaged, hope that this may help. however am now stopped waiting for retracts, don't need the oleos yet , when I have finished the wing will publish photos

cheers

Peter

A big thanks to Graham & Dennis for carefully packing up my LA7 and bits which arrived today.

Must show great restraint and not drool on the veneer as the BF110 has to come first.

Graham , isn't there some proverb about the bolts and horses ?

There was a long list of chaps in the La7 waiting room . Preceded by a long list of people in the Hurricane waiting room .

I believe that all those in both waiting rooms, got their kits .

Did you not see to sign to the waiting room ?

Did you only buy a platform ticket ?

Were you buying a coffee and a doughnut for eight weeks ? Stuck in the Lav ? Struck down with disentery by a National Express pork pie ?

Or am I thinking of the one about the crying wolf? Or is the boy that's crying ?

Anyway , a worm's involved and probably a bird with or without a bush .

Hi Richard

In defence of my case, I did put my name on the 63" but you put me off suggesting that the smaller version would be better for electric.

I'm sorry I missed the bird with the worn that went after the horse without the bush. See how distraught I am. Now full of gobbledygook.

Just thought I'd try

Kind regards

Well Graham ,

Patience is a virtue .

Although I dont think she was when I went out with her , Or am I thinking of Olive oil ?

Anyway ,

lets carry on with this 110 and see what transpires.

As my Mum always said , "You never Know what's round the corner "

( she had tunnel vision )

Terrible business , but it kept her focussed .

On the horizon, mostly .

I knew a Bloke who was blind in one eye and couldn't see out of the other one, so they fitted him with a glass eye. He couldn't see thru that either so he drilled a hole in it.......it was OK then.

All's well that ends well I say

D.D.
