|Thread: Shops closing|
same here with my local, 'Model Shop Leeds' ... closed but taking online and telephone orders
|Thread: great service|
|Thread: Netflix scam|
Had the Netflix one. Also a 'TV licence' scam going round saying they haven't been able to take direct debit payment, and could I re-enter my bank details ........
|Thread: Insanity seems to be setting in|
You do realise that this is all an elaborate conspiracy to keep all modelers grounded at home or in workshops so Amazon can justify their 'Drone Delivery' stratergy ......... just saying
Or if you have some short stepladders, ..... the bathroom basin or even kitchen sink could be put to good use ... just saying

|Thread: First generation acrowot tail fin|
Would be helpful if you could post a photo of the damage Mark.
|Thread: Synthetic instead of caster oil?|
As Jon says ... I also only ever use synthetic now, much cleaner engines and models
|Thread: Funny caption ideas?|
Hey .... !! Someone's nicked the flowers from your previous glider's headstone !!
|Thread: Probable scam?|
I had a suspicious email supposedly from TV licensing, claiming they were unable to take my direct debit payments, and could I please provide my bank details. No name, just 'dear customer'. ...... sure enough when I checked, my payment had gone out, ...obviously a scam. Scares me how many elderly people may fall for this, best spread the word !!
|Thread: Recommend a Hotliner Please|
As Gordon said, Hotliners seem to be scarce in the UK at the moment. I have a 2mt RCRCM Hornet with 'electric' fuselage from Rich at T9 Hobbysport, it goes ballistic ! I can't find it on his website anymore, but I'm sure he would be helpful if you give him a ring.
|Thread: BMFA Membership Card|
I've read on other forums we should get them in January.
|Thread: 'Starloc' adhesives.|
Hi all, just to update.
My order from 5 Star / Starloc has arrived, so it's all good
Hi all, thanks for your comments.
I have been in touch with Will and Gervaise, and after some unavoidable delays, my order is said to be now on it's way. Would certainly be good to see them at the shows again
Has anyone ordered from here ? They used to sell the 'Starloc' adhesives at the shows, but not seen them for a while. I liked their product so found their website in Bulgaria. Site looks legit and up to date, but still waiting for my order after 3 weeks, and no answer to emails ; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: contain;">🤔
|Thread: Is it just me or do we all take ages to do things?|
Hmmmmm ...... and why am I on here reading this when I've got models sat in my workshop waiting for me to finish ? ...... all in good time ... all in good time ...
|Thread: SC 91fs will not stop.|
Ok thanks JDB and Jon. I will have a play with the needle settings, and check again for air leaks. Also as you say Jon, the engine runs well, so if all else fails I will leave it alone. The engine idles really nice and slow, so its easy enough to stop by throwing a rag into the prop.
Hi all, after flying 2 stroke glow and petrol for many years, I now fancy a dabble in vintage. Can anyone tell me why my SC 91 four stroke glow will not cut when I fully close the throttle ? It just seems to be content idling away. I have set the needle settings to manufacturers instructions, also looked down the barrel when closed, and it's definitely closing fully with no inlet hole showing. Also checked inlet for air leaks, all seems ok. I am using the version where the crankcase vent recycles the excess oil back into the inlet manifold, I have even replaced the fuel tube on there to be sure of no air leaks.
Until I am ready to install in a vintage, am running the engine inverted in a Ripmax Bolero, runs great all across the throttle range, but still will not stop when I close the throttle, but I wouldn't have thought the engine position would have any effect ?
Any ideas please ?

You could try 4-Max, they have recommended setups, you may find something similar to your size of model on this page.
|Thread: What's your favourite way of attaching a canopy?|
I'm not a big fan of canopy glue, but it has worked for me. First I lightly key the gluing area with fine sandpaper, both painted and film covered surfaces, then apply the canopy glue, hold down the canopy with masking tape, then here's the important bit ... leave the glued canopy undisturbed for 48 hours. Takes a while to fully set I know, but works for me.
Nah, ... 12mm cavity wall bolts, can't pull out then
