Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions
24/05/2020 09:08:02

Similar question regarding a Laser 100 with the single bolt valve cover and silver TT? carb. Is it ok to use the same fuel as in my new Lasers - S/Modelcraft 10% fully synthetic, 5% nitro? ( I don't mind some risk if its marginal and accept its not a company recommendation and just an informed opinion )

Ron, very useful tweaks and like the attention to detail thumbs up

Regarding the laminating film - how well does the primer adhere to the keyed surface, ie. will it scratch off with a finger nail or will the final fuel proofing be relied on to offer finish resistance to hanger rash? (Sorry if jumping the gun)

Thread: The State of Play

1. Ki 84 80/100 (Different, large round cowl)

2. Tempest 80/100

3. F4U Corsair 80/100 (Twist & Turn?)

4. Something other in the 80/100 but would support most subjects to encourage Richard.

Thread: The Lockdown Restrictions Have Been Relaxed. Who's Been Flying?
14/05/2020 09:19:24

Myself and one other member went yesterday, cold and breezy in Yorkshire and both blow the cobwebs away with an enjoyable few hours - damage free.

We are only 15 members with 2 at 2m+ allowed in the pits/flying. If 3/4 then they must wait in the safe zone 10m away (2m apart). If 5/6 then they must wait at least 10m from the pits and 10m from group one, Groups of 2 at 10m Minimum spacing seems practical. In reality it's viewed as a busy day if we get 4. Great to be back in the air, I have missed it smiley

David, "Interesting" - in what I understand Gamine's meaning was in French. "A slim elegant woman who is, or perceived to be mischievous, teasing or sexually appealing". Wonder if Vic knew?

Lockdown, few beers and with a squint - must get out more.

Thread: Tufcote / Furniglass

Tufcote alternative thumbs up

Anyone any idea who made or a trade name for the old Solarfilm Clearcoat, which I presume was a re-badged product ? Really miss its one part simplicity for both fuel proofing and sealing film edges.
