Thread: Warbird C of G

Have you actually measured the difference in CG between wheels up/down ? I suspect it's naff all, also any model where such a marginal change in CG makes it unstable has much bigger problems.

Compare the situation to the difference in CG with a full/empty tank. Thats huge in comparison.

Having been lucky enough to have seen this build evolve in the flesh, I can now pronounce judgement.

You make me sick.

Really. The finish, the attention to detail, the design, the plan, the craftsmanship, I mean, really ? What are you trying to do to mere mortal builders like myself ? Humph. I'm off for a sulk.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned the Vauxhall Insignia estate ?

No ? Then I will.

Don't get one. Mine is dreadful, huge mistake to get after my old Mondeo. The rear seats don't go flat and the rear end is rounded off (not good for big models) Driving wise, it's flakey, almost got a mind if its own, and don't get me started on that fu%?#@g electronic handbrake ...

In 80K it's had several problems including a new clutch, gearbox, flywheel and brake bits. In 4 years the Mondeo blew a headlight bulb.

It's up for renewal in June thank gawd, Mondeo all the way now.

When the skin is cold, blood vessels near the surface get narrower. If the skin is then exposed to heat, the blood vessels become wider.

If this happens too quickly, blood vessels near the surface of the skin can't always handle the increased blood flow. This can cause blood to leak into the surrounding tissue, which may cause the swelling and itchiness associated with chilblains.

Your mum was right

WarbirdColours is beautiful paint to use, I love the stuff, gutted the supply is drying up.

Just phoned them, and the cost of import and supply is now just too much.

They have a few colours left, but I've just relieved them of half of it hahaha

On the good news front ... They are hoping to source a UK supplier of an equivalent paint in the future.

A PSS Zero ! Fabulous. Please do a build log in the PSS section on here ? There will be a lot of interest. I'm waiting for Tonys 78" Vulcan to be released to build as a Sloper.
Thread: Help identifying a Laser engine

I think the 'year stamp' varied a bit, sometimes the actual year, and sometimes the car registration letter or number.

That engine has 12 cooling fins, so my guess is a Laser 100 made in 2001 ?

If anyone's wondering if I painted the pilot - hahahaha I wish ! I sub-contracted that out to my ridiculously talented nephew-in-law.

Many thanks to Matt Jones because I ripped off his Pilots Seat design from his Vixen

Having had a go with several different paints over the past few years, I am now a complete convert to WarbirdColours from Fighteraces. Here's why:

1) It's water based, so easy cleanup, and minimal odour and spray fumes.

2) It covers really well and dries quickly

3) It has a nice natural satin sheen, it's tough and a quick fine sanding leaves a really nice surface.

4) The colour range is good, and supposedly accurate (even though I darkened it 'cos I like it darker)

5) It goes on beautifully, and is remarkably forgiving. This means that a Gorilla like me can slap it on like Jordans lippy and it still levels off nicely and doesn't run !

6) The service and advice from the guys at Fighteraces is brilliant.

Other points:

It's pigment is thick, so needs a lot of stirring. In long standing tins, the pigment forms a golf ball in the bottom of the tin like the Devils own bogey.

I couldn't get it to go through my 0.5mm Airbrush (other airbrushes may vary) So I spent £18 on a spraygun from Screwfix with a 0.8mm nozzle. This works great, but you need a big old compressor to drive it, a 3 Litre tank airbrush compressor won't cut it.

Overall - highly recommended, I prefer it to Flair Spectrum, Humbrol Enamels, and anything from Halfords

I've got a Laser 45,still goes like stink !! It weighs 560g, that's only 20g less than a modern 70. It's more compact, but apart from that has little advantage over a my 70.

Glad you've seen sense Mannyroad ! Leave that Laser the heck alone, it's a peach as it is

I've got Laser 180 in an enlarged TN Spit (91 inch) I used soft balsa everywhere filled the tail with holes and used 5mm sheet for the fuselage sides. The elevator servos are in front of the CG running on Snakes.

With a fixed undercarriage it came in at 18.5lbs AUW including 1lb nose ballast. The 180 is just right for it, but wouldn't be able to cope with much more weight.
