August Issue


It’s time now to take a brief look at what we have lined up for you in the August issue of RCM&E, starting as usual with our regular columns.

In his latest Bench Blog, Tim Hooper devotes his column to turning up an R/C carb for a shelf borne diesel using his new machine tools. In One Man & His Shed, Dave Goodenough does without a milling machine but still manages to repair a glow motor. Then it’s over to Chris Williams for more Scale Gliding, this time from the White Sheet club’s spring meeting. Later on, Keith Jackson’s Aerobatic Scene column looks at some new models being prepared for the forthcoming F3A World Champs in Australia.

For this month’s centre-fold Pro-Plan it’s back to Chris Williams who introduces the second part of his article describing the build and flying of a classic one sixth scale vintage glider, the Slingsby T.30 Prefect. This completes the Prefect plan and article which started in the June issue.

Our feature articles start with Creating Your own model in which Martin Hardy offers words of encouragement to any experienced modellers wishing to step up and design their own large scale model. Next, Shaun Garrity visits the RAF Museum Midlands at Cosford for the LMA Static Show to see a fine collection of large models on display amongst the full-size exhibits. Finally, we join Danny Fenton as he continues his report from the Scale Indoor Nationals; this month Danny concentrates on the free flight events.

On test this month David Ashby straps in to test fly the new T-7 red Hawk EDF jet from XFly-Model. Finishing off, Kevin Crozier looks at another of the laser cut accessories offered by Flightplan Models. This time the spotlight falls on their C of G Balance.
