Thread: Martin Baker MB5
07/07/2020 07:07:49

Yes I remember Tim's original MB5 at an early flying show in 1982 at Graveney Kent, run by the Canterbury club, Chris Foss was flying a Dalotel, and me flying my MR Hurricane badly 😲

Looks very Mustang like with that radiator, did it have a contra rotating prop on the full-size ??

Hi Martin

Forget the fuselage jig and build it inverted over the drawing, I would cut the cross pieces in pairs first and pin top ones to the drawing and away you go using pin and some weights ??

Thread: Does anyone remember...

My memories are of a model shop in Swanley Kent in the 70's run by Roy Norris he had a BN Islander hanging in the shop which had won 1972 class 2 nats with. Unfortunately short lived as Roy was tragically killed flying a DH Chipmunk 😢 still remember him as a really nice guy...

Thread: Diesel vs glow on a .5cc engine
12/06/2020 17:13:18

Hi All,

I flew a 32" span Turbulent designed by Ron Moulton with a . 55 PAW but ailerons & elevator, tissue covered and enamel painted, you don't need to fuel proof the model 😄 still have the u/c, may build another some day.

Hi Rogeo,

I would guess you radio is 35mhz which has been superseded now by 2.4mhz and glo motors are not so popular with the advent of electric flying.

New equipment is so cheap these days I'd buy new if you can ??

Thread: Which Glue
29/05/2020 06:46:05

img_20200507_164437.jpgOMG, balsa cement of is the corner stone of aeromodelling, how could we live/build without it 😄👍😎

Hi Jason,

I haven't seen fish glue in Poundland ! But will have a look for it 😄

Granted I've only been building for 50 years but never had either the expensive or the cheap stuff fail.

Regards Ray

Hi Micheal,

I'd go with Doc's suggestions on Gorilla products + Balsa Cement for joining sheets.

Plus I find the Poundland cyano, and epoxy great value 👍✔,

In my experience because it costs an arm & leg doesn't make it any better !

Regards Ray

Thread: Gary's Brian Taylor P-47 build
26/05/2020 18:31:51

Hi Gary,

Wow they are heavy duty drills !!

I use sharpened brass tubes which were commercially available but easy to make 😄

Hi All ,

That's good advice from Danny, I have studied Brian's designs for the last 40 years since my first build of his Mk 9 which with his first Hurricane were pre retract days with fixed under carts, the first designs all featured the 1/4" square framework with the formers fixed on the outside, he then progressed the the later 8 3" Spit which has sheet sides, one for the future I have all the bits 😄👍 enjoy your P47 build ! !I

Take weight out where you can, they do end up heavy if your not careful.img_20200109_204424.jpg

Hi Guys,

The BT Vultee Valiant plan shows the same solid construction 2 x 1/2" lamination thought it's one of his earlier design ? I have gone built up route to save some lead up front 😄👍
