|Thread: GS covering|
What a shame! I just hate it when that happens!!
What Kiwi said! Sounds a lot like HK covering. Excellent stuff.Just got to watch out for the 'white line' thing.
|Thread: When does your building 'stall'?|
For those of you crying about the cost of covering, take a look at Hobby King (hope these are not dirty words on this forum).
For the cost of a 2 meter roll from my LHS, I can buy a 5 metre roll (including shipping) for the same price. I can vouch for the quality too. Takes very high temps and excellent shrinkage for compound curves. A good range, but could be wider.
No light weight or tissue imitation (eg. solar tex) options, but enough variety otherwise for decent selection.
My garage where I store my planes gets up to 60 degrees celcius (140 degrees fahrenheit) in summer and non of models have sagged. My Boomerang (ARTF) on the other hand looks like a bag of saggy washing.

Wadda ya talkin about!! Aren't you under water at the moment? Wouldn't you be better off building boats or float planes?
Would rather take my chance with the bush fires!

Which state of the giant, hot bbq plate do you come from.
I'm in Melbourne.
|Thread: Citabria Pro (1/8 scale)|
Like watching a work of art in progress. No doubt a master piece when complete!
|Thread: RCM&E March 2013 feedback|
Any Ozzies received their March copy yet? I'm still waiting!!!
|Thread: What do you reckon to this video then?|
Would the anchor point at the back of the chair not interefere with a rocked propelled ejection?
Looks alot like fiberglass to me! Pssh!
|Thread: Citabria Pro (1/8 scale)|
Stop it! STOP IT!! So many wonderful plans, and so little time....!
If anybody is looking for a family and a mortgage, please, please take mine. Then I might actually get some building done.
|Thread: Best ever purchase?|
Not so much something I bought, but obtained somewhere along the way,..
....a green plastic milk crate!
Never knew a milk crate could have so many uses, table / bench, foot stool, seat, step stool, painting stand, just to name a few...
I would be lost without it.
|Thread: Extra Slim Twin|
Your colour scheme certaily is very effective in taking away from the 'boxy' shape!
Must add this to my list of tips & tricks!
|Thread: February 2013 issue feedback|
I don't get it!!
I have been looking forward to this issue for Jim's plan, but have to say, think she looks better in her revised colour scheme...
Would bring a bit of colour to the flying field. Think I might go down this road!!
Still waiting for my copy to arrive here in Melbourne, OZ.
Very funny BBC!
|Thread: Pix - E Major|
Thanks to both of you Steve & Adrian
I have always been a nitro man myself. Easier to determine power requirements and no where near the multitude of choices as with electrickery! If I needed a smaller powerplant, it was always an 0.49
Granted there is much more flexability, and ever more affordable with electric motors, but trying to bring it altogether in my head is almost to much for me....
The smaller motors around 30gms in weight and 200 / 150Watts are suggested for 6 x 3 props. Given the Pix E Major swings a 9 inch slow fly prop, I didn't know if this would over exert these smaller motors.
Will it shorten the life of these motors swinging a 9 inch prop?
What? No prop hanging, Tim?!
Have no intent of using the motor full song on this model, but didn't know what else to get. As I know very little about electric motors, I was just trying to get one around the same dimensions as yours, Tim.
|Thread: The Person Behind the Words|
Is a post like this really necessary? Why post a response at all.
Did your mother never teach you, if you have nothing nice to say, then best say nothing at all!

Does it have to be just one? Peter Miller, Tim Hooper and Nigel Hawes, to thank them for all the plans they have submitted to RCM&E, and then to curse them with the realisation that I will probably only get to build a fraction of them!
