|Thread: Tornado GR4 (150%)|
Often wondered what happened with this one but glad to see you are back at it and it's looking great so far. I'm looking forwards to seeing the finished product, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a stunner.

|Thread: Boulton Paul Balliol|
Interesting to note the many similarities between the B.P. Balliol and the Avro Athena
|Thread: Probable scam?|
Update following the Panorama programme - the call centre owner has been arrested and is in custody
Now if they can catch the rest of them then that would be great
|Thread: Boulton Paul Balliol|
Certainly a nice different subject and one that is rarely modelled, (Like a good few many others out there I suspect) This one reminds me of part Ju-87 Stuka but with the wings and tail feathers of the Percival Provost (which didn't come out until after this one)
There is plenty of info available on it though and still plastic kits available which I would certainly be using as reference material Link
There is also a very good thread here with some nice pics of the real thing Link
Some cross sections of the fuz on this link Link
And last but not least, Youtube will throw up some nice videos on this one

I was in Poundland the other day and spotted those clamps so picked some up. You can never have too many !!
|Thread: Hi from me and my KK Fairey Gannet build|
Contra rotating rc electric motors are out there if you do a search and would probably compliment your model very nicely.
Here is one example I found, I'm sure there are cheaper ones out there.
|Thread: Chinese suppliers|
I wish people would stop scare-mongering on these things, current death rate is around 300 out of a population of 1.386 BILLION people in China. Hardly anything to be worried about, Flu kills more than that in the UK and Europe every year.
The other thing is, a Virus is a very fragile living organism which requires a host and very specific conditions to survive, it can only survive for a very short time outside it's host before it dies.
So if someone in China with the virus was to sneeze on the packet of your order, be it air freight (extremely cold conditions in an aircraft cargo hold) or on the slow boat for 3 weeks or more shut in a container with no chance of infecting anyone, the Likelihood is that the virus will be long dead before your package reaches you.
Remember the panic over SARS and Bird Flu.......it didn't wipe us out either.
In the immortal words of Lance Corporal Jones in Dad's Army - Don't Panic !!
|Thread: Cab anyone ID this model, please?...|
No problem and glad to be of help. Check out the tail dragger conversion on the RC forums, it certainly suits this plane well.
For some reason I can't enlarge that pic but I can tell you what the plane is :
It's a Blackhorse Angel. You'll find plenty of pics and info on it if you do a search.
There is also a video here : Link
|Thread: 20 years out of date !|
Made to loop and roll lol
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
For me, Yet another Scale Heli build but this time finally finishing a fuselage which I bought back in 1985.
This is one is a Bell 222 UT (Utility) as owned by Halo Aviation in South Africa and operated by Buthelezi EMS in the air ambulance role.
First pic is the model, not a lot left to do now, final fittings etc so not too far away from maiden. The 2nd pic is the real thing
|Thread: Phoenix Flight Sim|
Just to answer a couple of queries, Firstly Phoenix will run quite happily on Windows 10 as I have reinstalled it on a new build computer last week - running Win 10 Pro. (The install and updates were very rapid too)
There is indeed a version 6.0i available, I found out much to my surprise when re-installing last week. I thought it had stopped at Version 5.5L when Horizon hobby decided to pull the plug but obviously not
If you want to reinstall - you can do it from here (This is where I did mine from). You will need your original usb dongle to use it though. You can still fly in online sessions too - there is a link on the page below

You didn't really need to go on ebay for the plan, you can get it free here - Link

Simon, I don't think you'll any problem sloping yours.
|Thread: Flair Cub|
You could still tease those wrinkles out a bit more with the heat gun, they'll come out but don't overdo the heat.
|Thread: New build rubber powered balsa|
I built the Senator when I was 14 and had no trouble covering those wings. Had plenty of fun flying that one too.
