Thread: Muffler mods and making

Header and cannister is a lot more effective but obviously take up a lot more room. HK used to sell them pretty cheap too.

I am happy to supply a copy and/or upload to Outerzone, but how do I do it?

Thread: When to Maiden your first new build?
12/01/2020 09:21:15

Number 2 generally. I have often maddened in the past without finishing and fitting the cowl.

That’s great Nigel, and cracking photos yes

Thread: Let down by FMS again

This is not unusual at all, I have a few models that are NLA and spares are impossible to find, very annoying but that’s how it is with a lot of models.

Thread: Cremation, or Composting ?
12/11/2019 06:57:10

And I don’t want to turn this into a political debate, but I do a lot of recycling, but I recently read that councils still don’t recycle all the stuff we bag up for them. Westminster council where I work are one of the worst, 80% of the stuff they receive doesn’t get recycled dont know

so to the OP, I would cremate it 👍

I have a wood burning stove. Wrecked models make superb kindling!

They will be banned before bonfires, so I am making the most of mine 😉

Whats worse, a bonfire in the garden or driving the waste to the local council tip?

Thread: Avicraft Panic

I really should have a panic for nostalgia. My modelling started with many Thursday evenings spent at the Avicraft store in the 80’s and yet I never owned one!

Thread: How many flyable aircraft do you have ?

Let's put it this way - I have 48 model memories in my Tx and there are only a couple of spare ones left. I have models suspended from the living room ceiling (very understanding wife), stored in the shed (mostly waiting for repair/servicing) plus a loft full. All this does not include quite a few unbuilt kits or a headful of ideas for models I want to build in the future - if I live long enough! You can't have too many model aircraft.

The living room? 😮

Thread: Glen's Models 35% Extra 330 electrification
06/11/2019 18:18:30

Do you set throws yourself? Didn’t Glen provide the numbers?

Like you, I have a habit of setting the throws on the trans, however I read recently that it is much better to keep the trans set at 100%, and set throws using the control horns....

getting close to maiden 😉👍

I often have the same issue with photos Bernd, it drives me nuts 😄

The canopy looks great 👍 I think screws set it off nicely, and you’d get away without glue, just drill pilot holes and drop in some thin cyno to harden the wood.

Hi all, I have a heating boiler of 25year plus. (Thorn Emi Olympic 30/50B). When the wind blows pilot light out perhaps once may be twice a year, I am unable to light it again using the appropriate and safe method. My plumber has to visit to get it lit. He always re minds me I should get a new boiler, I do not agree, as boiler is fine bar the manual ignition system. Would there possibly be spares still out there, or an alternative. Main reason for not wanting to spend £2000 + on a new boiler is my age lol. Cheers ps my boiler is older than my plumber

Edited By fly boy3 on 04/11/2019 15:12:32

👍. Same here. Old boilers just work, and everyone I have spoken to says new boilers are unreliable rubbish (being polite). We have it serviced occasionally and always carry one of the pilot light thermocouple things, because it’s the only thing that needs replacing.

Lovely engineering but ridiculous prices.

Thread: Rugby World Cup 2019.
03/11/2019 08:15:05

I’m into football rather than rugby generally but one of the things I like about rugby is the respect shown by the players to the refs, other teams etc..

i can’t comment on them taking off the medals, as I turned off after yet another penalty gift which took the game away from England.

SA were great, but England never turned up. Perhaps they thought this would be a formality after beating the AB.

Very disappointing performance.
