|Thread: Rick Wakeman - Piano Portraits|
Many years ago I went to a Rick Wakeman concert in The Parc and Dare theatre in Treorchy , Rhondda . A great story teller and musician .One of the stories he relates is about "Morning has Broken". He did the complete arrangement and solo work and Cat Stevens never gave him a mention or a royalty .He was not on very good terms with him after that .
|Thread: Exhaust options|
Try an exhaust extension from Just Engines .

Hi David .What did you use to stick the Doculam on with . Keith
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
This is my last winter build project ---"Snowy Owl" by Andy Lennon .I finished it about 3 months ago but needed for the "newness" to wear off before it flew .It was one of my most challenging builds to date .It introduced me to a number of innovations and construction issues .John Ballinger of our club maidened it last week .Apart from a few clicks on some trims here and there it flew well .If anyone is looking for something different to build I can recommend this and if you have Andy's book it will add to your enjoyment . The plan and build guides can be down loaded from Outerzone .
|Thread: Depth Perception.|
I'm over 70 now and have been wearing Varifocals for over 30 years .I have no problems with flying and landing using them .The only activity I used to take them off for was Squash which I gave up 10 years ago .
|Thread: Plan protection|
The clear backings from covering films .
|Thread: Battle of Britain: Model Squadron|
Hi BEB , did the same and got the same reply .It was so easy to do on the "link" .And as you say the more the better .
|Thread: Disappearing Lasers|
Good for you Jon . Keith
|Thread: Identification needed|
Thanks Brocken Prop .I'll go to sleep much easier now .
|Thread: Attention newbies !!!|
A low wing trainer with mild aerobatic performance .Along the lines of Tony ' s high wing trainer, SKY 40 , published a few years back and now available from SLEC as a kit .SKY is still the model I start the year off flying again .
|Thread: Identification needed|
Can anyone identify the plane in the photo .It was taken two weeks ago while on holidays in Portugal .I could not translate the inscription on the plaque as my Portuguese only copes with "ola" and "vinho Branco por far vore" .
|Thread: How much to charge|
If I were to repair planes for club members it would be on the scale of 1 ,2 or 3 three bottles of at least13% to 14% of red wine .I'm not a fussy wine drinker .So if they could get a bargain offer so much the better . The "bottle rate" was dependent on the amount of damage incurred .This rate included materials and time . We were all happy with this .
|Thread: Hi Everyone|
I think there should be a government health warning sticker on all plans ,kits and ARTF's of WW11 fighter planes ."NOT FOR FIRST TIME FLYERS" . I jest .
|Thread: Diesel exausts|
Hi all .I've all my glow engines fitted with standard B@Q plastic pipe ,some of it up to about 9" to 10" long for about 6 to 7 years now to minimise the mess .Yes I agree that power may be down but the way I fly ,mostly on 1/4 to 1//2 throttle it is not a concern and I suffer no over heating . On the diesel side the B@Q pipe melts through in two flights .I stayed away from silicon as I believe it is attacked by the fuel hence the use of Tygon for all fuel lines . The current length of tubing on my PAW 35 is about 2" and seems to run fine . Thanks for all the feedback. Keith
I'm currently using a short length of old petrol hose pipe on my PAW 35 held on with a hose clip as an extender .What do others use to get the mucky stuff away from the model. I'm not thinking of a custom made job or anything that requires a lathe .
|Thread: Chapter One Aileron Wing|
Hi DeeBee ---I have the aileron wing plan .Send me a pm and we can work something out . Keith
|Thread: Eureka moments|
My Eureka moment came when I found that left over and salvaged control horn bolts were the right size to tap through servo arms . I could then extend an arm by bolting a cut off arm onto the top of the existing arm through two holes .
What could be used instead of Prymol and Clearcoat when it comes to covering .
|Thread: C of G Which way up and why?|
Nose down ! ! ! I've never really questioned this in the past , but how can a model "balance " nose down ? I've seen this and do it myself . If I were to try and balance a long piece of wood on a sharp fulcrum it would either balance or tip one way or the other .It would not "balance" nose down. Is it something to do with friction between the balance fulcrum and the wing surface ?
Hi all . Thanks again for all the valuable info .The next time I fly , weather not too great at the moment ,I'll try out the suggestions at a good hight in my SKY 40 .
