Danny Fenton concludes his build of a DB Sport & Scale semi scale kit.

I used a hinging technique that I first saw Brian Taylor use. I am sure it has been around since before that, but it produces a beautifully accurate, precise and free moving hinge, with the bonus that the piano wire hinge pin can be removed to allow disassembly right up until applying the final paint.

Alex Whittaker twangs on his Marigolds and gets to grips with cleaning up a much loved but tatty sports model.

Most radio modellers are 'Airframe Retentive'. I have had always had trouble throwing out old models, partially pranged models or those high-hours airframes that just need a little tender loving care. Like Darling Greta, I do want to save the planet. Mainly so that I can carry on flying endlessly repairable, eco-friendly balsa wood and glow plug engined models.

Jeff Barringer builds an electric powered Concorde from the Tony Nijhuis plan.

Having built the Tony Nijhuis Mosquito and Gnat recently, and being well-pleased with the results, I decided that I’d like to have a go at his Concorde.

David Ashby fills his pandemic lockdown hours completing a modern update of a classic glider

The Super-Sinbad was designed in the early 1940s by Henry Struck and kitted by Berkeley Models in the USA. Spanning 62" and weighing less than 20 ounces all up it was a tow line glider equipped with a clever method of staying straight on the line.

Danny Fenton describes his build of a DB Sport & Scale semi scale kit

Regular 'Make It Scale' readers may recall that I had purchased a DB Sport & Scale Auster Autocrat from an advert in RCM&E. The remit was for a fun model to try a few techniques I had been musing for several months. In fact, one had been on the cards for a few years! My mind works quite slowly sometimes but I do get there in the end.

The Editor heads to the hills with Composite RC Gliders two metre slope soarer.

Last month I covered the build of this sleek moulded glider and revealed its long heritage, it being an updated version of the RCRCM Typhoon. Since the original model first appeared around 2010 there is plenty of information regarding advanced set-ups online, especially for those of a more daring disposition who like to push their airframes to their limits. More on this later...

The Editor completes the build of RC Composite's two metre slope soarer.

In common with lots of moulded models the Edge is not supplied with any instructions. I guess the rationale is that if you've got to the stage in your model flying career where such a model appeals then you should have enough experience to piece it together. But everyone has to start somewhere so even a few brief notes would be helpful.

Alex Whittaker delves into a scale masterpiece from the secretive 'Spartacus', his 118-inch span Miles Gemini

Conceived as a four-seater light touring aircraft the Miles Messenger twin first flew on the 26th October 1945. The prototype was powered by a Blackburn Cirrus Minor engine. It was of wooden construction and had a retracting undercarriage.
