Not many for Saturday so might as well have a cuppa in the refreshment area and think about changing my antiperspirant sad

+1 Permagrit Slotter thumbs up


Permagrit tools are the best modeling investment I have made (No connection)

Ok Martin beat me to it with his edit.

Thread: Cork Tiles

I use Sundeala base board. Its the brown soft fiber board used in pin/notice boards as alternative to cork, Common practice is to put a thin cork layer over Sundeala for appearances. Used a lot by railway model makers as a base board and available from timber merchants and DIY stores. **LINK** Smaller quantities are available at other outlets. wink

I use double sided tape to hold it onto a piece of worktop, them turn over when required with no disposal issues.

Have a look at working out a power train on 4-Max as an excellent starting point.


You could also look at customers models for anything similar.

Flying near by at Tadcaster - Wighill and apart from a few spots of rain it stayed dry so hopefully they had as good a day we all enjoyed yesterday.

Another well run LMA Elvington thumbs up

Thread: Why not 'cut and glide'?

And flight 236 also ran out of fuel over the Atlantic and successfully glided 65 miles with no hydraulics to a rough but safe landing on a tiny Azores island.


Seems I was beaten to it sad

Thread: SR -71 Blackbird
08/08/2018 09:57:49

P38 to SR71 in less than 30yrs is some achievement and with Russian Titanium and a British (Kollsman?) astro navigation system - I like it.

Cheers all for the clarifications.

Time for tea and Ginger Nuts to contemplate pros & cons options.indecision

Hi Frank, Sorry should have been more specific.

I have a Spektrum DX9 TX, however I use mixture of receivers (Spek, Redcon, Lemon & Orange) My Orange 12's have a SBus port. The Redcons have PPM

Other than the 8 channel converter do I have other options?


06/08/2018 07:25:58

I understand the principal of SBUS and its benefits particularly for a complex wing set up.

What is not clear is if you can use the 4 ch FrSky decoder + channel selector, Bangood, 16ch & FrSky Redundancy 10/20 with say Spectrum?

Thread: Seagull Mosquito Laser build

Cheers Chris, Arr so the tanks are not in their final position. Like you I will be cutting my teeth on a ASP 61 fs powered Dual Ace.

04/08/2018 12:36:03

Following with a keen interest as twins have always fascinated me.

Question - looks as though engines are inverted which puts the tank very high in relation to the carb, are you anticipating any siphoning issues or mixture richening on closing the throttle with such a head of fuel?

Martyn - I like that a lot and simple thumbs up

Thread: New caption competition

Beaten by a gentleman - well done Trebor thumbs up

Thread: P38 Lightning
22/07/2018 21:30:38

I like it Martian.

Following with a great deal of interest.

Thread: BAE Systems Tempest
17/07/2018 07:23:38

I am surprised it even has a pilot onboard frown

The space and equipment required to sustain them is both expensive, heavy and structurally limiting, plus physically having a person on board severely limits the aircrafts performance.

Thread: Stripped thread bodge

I have had good results with J B Weld (original cold weld). steel epoxy.

So long as the metal is absolutely clean it sticks like snot to a horsehair blanket - and is hard and good for 300c.


Seems that it may now prove difficult to obtain which is a shame sad

If you can find some grab it - it is good.
