Although the Axminster is 20Kg Mike, I've no difficulty lifting about my work area and even to the floor - and I'm no weightlifter either. Feels solid too.

You wouldn't want to rob kc of another lot of commission would you? smiley

Thread: Types of models
15/01/2014 16:38:57

What have I started?! laugh

I don't fit into any of those yet Martyn.

We'd need a 'Enthusiastic learner who's flying is limited to a simulator' category at the moment.

I've only been 'at it' for 4 months or so but I suspect I'll end up somewhere between the 'Builder', 'Tree Hugger (if my golf is anything to go by)' and 'Unintentional Loner' - but I hope not!

Thanks all, very helpful.

Hi Mike.

It's the Axminster Hobby model. The cost was just under £80. You can see it here: LINK

I got it following the discussion about scroll saws in this forum, one of which is HERE

Looks good and seems excellent value to me. You can blame KC if you don't like it though. smiley

Thread: Phil's Barnstormer

Interesting Phil, thanks.

Thread: Types of models
14/01/2014 11:06:41

Thanks BEB, that'll do for now. smiley

I've seen various descriptions of model types flying around. Some are pretty obvious (aerobatics) but I'd be interested to know a working (as opposed to competition) definition of the main types.

I'm guessing that scale is a reduced size version of a real plane (Spitfire, Concorde, Sopwith Camel etc) at any size?

Does sport cover most things that aren't from 'real' planes? I guess like the Wot4, Barnstormer variants and so on.

Thread: Barnstormer Boys

Noddy question here.

Am I right in thinking that the Barnstormer design was created by 'Boddo' and wasn't directly from a real plane?

If so, then I guess any styling and colours etc are acceptable (within the bounds of at least reasonable taste obviously)?

14/01/2014 10:02:45

My wood's arrived and the scroll saw should follow today so I'll be off soon with the 63"er.

From a quick look at the plans I might be looking for help to identify one or two pieces. I'll shout if I still have a problem after a proper shifty.

Thread: Calling all Mass Builders
14/01/2014 08:06:54

Received my wood bits yesterday and my scroll saw today (hopefully). Just got a few bits to finish on the current model and I'll be off.

Still guilty as charged I guess m'Lud?

Thread: "Shedstormer" The build.
13/01/2014 09:08:55

Thanks Kevin. I suspect that I'll make the same mistakes as you. smiley
