That's a great idea, it gets my vote, but wood they cover the travelling costs from Norfolk?

I haven't been for a couple of years and have saved the money 😀

Hi Tim,

You may find the Midlands Model Engineering in October rather more engineering orientated, the Alley Pally has always been a wide variety of interests, as the kids aren't taught basic metalwork I doubt if the show will have any engineering content in 20 years 😀I

I do fly RC, build steam engines & model boats , model making is a broad church thank goodness.

Hi Martin,

I' m a car ferry enthusiast, spent my childhood holidays at Greatstone watching the Bristol Freighters fly out of Lydd, I had a freighter design published back in 1999 ! That led me to meet loads of ex Silvercity pilots who went into jets.

Also the late Pete Lowe & I shared the passion for freighters and were members of the Silvercity Association.

Hi Martin,

My fun fighters were back in the late 80's but here's a 68" Brian Taylor Harvard which is completely tissue covered with wall paper paste it dries an disappears , a hang over from Keil Kraft Flying Scale Series in the 60's 😀

Try it on a sample of really works

Hi Martin,

I have found that a couple of coats of sanding sealer rubbed down between coats on foam wings and sheets fuselage to seal the wood then wall paper paste through the tissue and a coat of dope works fine 😀 I have built the Spitfire x2 Mustang, 109 & 190, my favourite is the 109, but the Mustang is easiest to launch with the intake under the wing.

Yes I watched the ITV Meridian reporter say you had to have proof of purchase to fly your drone!!!

Hi Cliff.

Always have a soft spot for Dan Air since we first flew on one of their 727's for our honeymoon to Ibiza in 1977

My dad flew to Aden in a York in 1944 was shocked at how much the wings flexed up & down !!

Not wanting to promote a world wide shortage of FMS 50mm fans but the 262 & Javelin have always been favourites of mine 😀I

Hi Andy,

I'll see what I can find 😀 I'm building a Magister at the moment.

PM me your email address and I will ping anything I find over in the new year 😅

Hi Andy,

Hope this is readable? From The Book of Miles Aircraft 1943,

If you would like it scanned properly and emailed after Christmas from my office let me know?

Regards Ray

Thread: Miles Sparrowhawk
23/12/2019 18:24:30

Hi Andy,

I can't find any reference to a recognised Aerofoil section used by Miles, but to say the Sparrowhawk wings were the outer panels of the Hawk Major M2F minus the centre section. The Dennis Bryant plan would help ?

Hi Steve,

Wow that drastic !! I'm just covering but could add some lightness holes, was your Lipo right up the front? And still needed ballast?

Hi Tim,

Yes that's what I did with Cyano, and used a hot glue gun for the first time to install the fan, go easy when put the second part of the bulkhead in as the fan shroud distorts easily
