|Thread: Trendsetters and Iconic Models over the Years?|
For a trendsetter how about the Astro Hog by Fred Dunn, from 1957.
Probably the first low wing aerobat and the daddy of all those that came after, sweeping the board in US competitions.

Eng gave their best on the day, but it's hard to play behind a beaten scrum. Bit surprised at that.
I'd like to think Wales suffered the AB backlash from losing last week, but although we never gave up we were outplayed in all aspects of the game.

AB look like scoring every time they're in Wales 22.
Wales look better moving the ball wide. Fast game.
Can't say I'm looking forward to the game in the morning, but with changes on both teams it might be interesting for the neutral observer.
I see Eng. coming through on Sat. They will offer a bit more muscle than Wales could muster last week, and hopefully a more interesting game
Failed at the last gasp
I'm going flying.
We're losing the forward battle and the kicking game and losing men.
Need some magic in the second.
Come on Wales.
great defense strangles AB running game.
Can Wales do the same against SA. Not confident
Great first half....Eng take it up the guts .
Must be my age, but the stress is getting to me. After all it's only a game isn't it......isn't it

So, it's crunch time in the morning for Eng., and I think they have a great chance of making it to the final.......now how does that tune go.
Unfortunately I don't feel as confident about Wales. Even if there were no injuries it would have been a big ask, we haven't been playing well and SA have got their mojo back. Oh and as someone recently said, they're "big buggers" too.
An extra hour of sleeplessness Sun morning.

|Thread: Sealing foam cored wings|
Can't see why water based poly shouldn't be used on veneer, it is made for use on wood.
Both my Cutlass airframes are glassed with poly over wood, depron and epp (see my photos) without any issues.
Epoxy does give a harder finish, but poly is completely adequate, with a low odor and easier clean up.
I've recently mended a veneered foam wing with light glass cloth and Wilco water based poly.
There seemed to be no adverse effect on the veneer after 3 coats.
Many moons ago I finished a foam wing with tissue and dope, and the dope seeped through the wing tip joint to eat away some of the foam, a bit of a mess to sort out.

You ask a lot Don
We scrape a win....just....going for a lie down now.
A yellow for Wales and the French running riot in loose play.......going to need some effort from Wales in the 2nd half.
Fine defence by Eng to snuff out Oz and take their own chances.
Scrums still a bit of a time wasting mystery, though I don't think the pitch helped much.
Wales get it done against a really fit Uruguay.
Japan a real joy to watch up to half time.
Wales made hard work of that and were outplayed wide much of the time.
Injury worries now.
Wales skidding all over that old Fijian banana skin...tight game
