|Thread: Austerity BF109G|
Very nice Scott, I love the alternative to cheque book modeling especially when the results look that good
|Thread: Anyone interested in a Nats meet-up?|
Not many for Saturday so might as well have a cuppa in the refreshment area and think about changing my antiperspirant
Making it a full day Saturday so what ever time is convenient !
Never say no to tea and biscuits
|Thread: Former cuts|
+1 Permagrit Slotter
Permagrit tools are the best modeling investment I have made (No connection)
Ok Martin beat me to it with his edit.

|Thread: fav model of all time|
Sunday Flyer, 48", 3 ch. My first plan built bipe which I still enjoy stooging around on a quite day with the OS 30 FS burbling away - Arrrrrrrrr.
|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.
I use double sided tape to hold it onto a piece of worktop, them turn over when required with no disposal issues.
|Thread: STOL mk2|
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.
|Thread: Elvington 2018|
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
|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

|Thread: SR -71 Blackbird|
P38 to SR71 in less than 30yrs is some achievement and with Russian Titanium and a British (Kollsman?) astro navigation system - I like it.
|Thread: SBUS SERVOS|
Cheers all for the clarifications.
Time for tea and Ginger Nuts to contemplate pros & cons options.
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?
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.
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?
|Thread: Air Retracts and how to store in a raised position|
Martyn - I like that a lot and simple
|Thread: New caption competition|
Beaten by a gentleman - well done Trebor
|Thread: P38 Lightning|
I like it Martian.
Following with a great deal of interest.
|Thread: BAE Systems Tempest|
I am surprised it even has a pilot onboard
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
If you can find some grab it - it is good.
