I'm documenting the build on this model, it's going together really quickly.

In this video I get the top wing covered, the servo mounting video (Part 8) is already on YouTube if you want to see it?

I have checked and it was during 1992 that it was damaged and repaired at Chivenor.

That's interesting, I've just found the same information on the warbird registry, never knew it existed, thanks Cliff.

The Avios is a great looking bird but only one at a time!

Great video. Enjoyed the 1st track on the video. Who was it and what is it called?

Hi Graham,

The first music track is called 'Baskets in the Sky' by Will Rosati, just beautiful and the second track is called "Air to the Throne' by Doug Maxwell, both on the YouTube Audio Library.

Great video Cliff,

During my time in the Royal Air Force I spent two weeks at RAF Chivenor in Devon working on P7350.

It had suffered an engine fault on take off and whilst trying to stop on the runway had run off the end and ripped off an undercarriage leg. We had to rebuild part of the inboard starboard wing and refit the u/c leg. Whilst working on it we could see some patches that had obviously been done to repair bullet damage during the war.

That's interesting Cliff, at least the model is still in Devon.

Here's some more information on the actual plane:

"Spitfire P7350 is the oldest airworthy Spitfire in the world and the only Spitfire still flying to have actually fought in the Battle of Britain. Believed to be the 14th of 11,989 Spitfires built at the Castle Bromwich ‘shadow’ factory in Birmingham, ‘P7’ entered service in August 1940. After serving initially with 266 Squadron at Wittering and Hornchurch at the height of the Battle of Britain, it was one of 13 Mk IIa Spitfires that were then transferred to 603 (City of Edinburgh) AuxAF Squadron at Hornchurch on 17 October 1940, to replace the Squadron’s older Mk 1s. P7350 is currently presented as Spitfire Mk 1a N3162 of No 41 Squadron, coded ‘EB-G’, the aircraft flown by the top-scoring Battle of Britain fighter ace Eric Lock on 5 September 1940, when he destroyed 3 enemy aircraft in a single sortie."

Thanks, the model is the Durafly Mk1a by the way, a cracking model for a foamy!

I've wanted to make this video for quite a while, it gives me goosebumps.

Thread: Orchestra on your patch
18/12/2019 00:27:42

One of my flying mates just made reference to a post on Facebook about needing a group the size of an orchestra soon to fly legally!

This immediately got me thinking, what a fantastic idea.

Personally something along the lines of the Battle of Britain theme would suit me but what would you like them to play while you fly?

I thought it was quite upbeat and worthy of our hobby, the drone footage added an interesting dimension as well.

Ha ha you never know! Mine was made very quickly using an old toilet roll cut into a cone with a little cotton wool to embellish, it was all done in a hurry while the batteries charged and the sun was going down.

Love it. Santa has a hint of Tim Burton, very apt. Hope it doesn't come true !

Not Tim Burton inspired but this Christmas tree decoration.
