The Spitfire is starting to look really cool with it's camo and decals, not long to go now.

Sounds all very 'Men in Black' Dwain smile d

Hi Dwain, just my phone on a tripod and a Mobius hat cam which I put in the cockpit as well. 'Cosmic', what a great word!

Just for fun I've pushed my editing skills to the limit, it's an exercise to see how exciting my newly-maidened DB Mannock biplane can be made to look!

Making the wing fairings out of card turned out quite well in the end.

Here's what I've been up to during the last couple of days, the classic wing shape of the Spitfire is always a pleasure to put together.

Moving on to the tail feathers in this video ... the fun just doesn't stop!

The Microaces' trainer, the Scrappee, is a lovely little plane and your plan is a good one Dwain.

My comments referred to both I suppose, although depending on the size of your venue, things can get a bit fraught 😁.

The Falcon kit was probably ahead of it's time.

looking good Cliff! love the Gerald Coulson print on your wall, titled "Outbound Lancaster" I believe?

Think I would have used pva rather than cyno tbh.

Coulson was a very talented painter wasn't he?

I agree, cyrano has it's advantages until you crash I wanted to make a quick start! I've just put the tail feathers together using aliphatic.

Very Nice Cliff,

Like you I am erring towards more indoor stuff, having resurrected a few old models, inc Helis.

I am looking at investing in a micro Aces Jobby too. I fancy the Fokker triplane, but will start with their trainer.

I just got a 3 blade scalish GWS 5 X 3 prop for my K.K. spitfire. I have converted it to R.C. using an old 35 mhz Falcon breeze blk.

Looking forward to part 3.


Hi Dwain, the indoor push is either down to Winter or C19 really, the bigger toys should have been out by now of course!

The Microaces Fokker Triplane is possibly the hardest of the lot to fly, probably due to the wing loading, I would go for the DVII if it's a Fokker you're after, very solid little bird.

I've not heard of the Falcon blk (brick?).

How about a motorbike trailer?

So it's really taking shape quickly, what a pleasure and fun these little planes are!

Never built an Invader but they sure look pretty, I think Jon woodfield flew a giant one on the North Cornwall coast, video on YouTube.

That's a beauty Ray and I see you're using the good old dining table building board laugh Has she maidened yet?

10/05/2020 18:50:14

As the heading says I gone back to my roots for this build, the simplicity of free-flight rubber coupled with laser cutting. How much pleasure can one person have.

Maybe c-g could be back a bit

Tried moving it back using the battery, but perhaps a little tail weight would improve matters.

Superb Cliff! needs more throw?

That's a line worth pursuing Paul, thanks for the comment.

Wondering if the lines are to near the leading edge

I'm not sure Bert, I know it can make a difference but not much, thanks for the idea though.
