Lithographic. Printing process used good size thin aluminium sheets, this style of printing may have been superseded these day, I have a stack of it from the 80's 😀

Hi Percy,

Levanter and I don't fit into set catagories I think we are model makers with multiple interests, flying, floating and running on rails with steam, variety is the spice of life 😀 been doing this for 50 years now.

Thread: Local club attendance
01/07/2019 20:46:37


That's a spot on observation in my view. For 25 years I drove 20 miles each way to club to make a noise in the country,

But with electric I don't have to !

Hi Tony,

Having carried the JP & the Gnat over to the patch for you the other Sunday, and watching Graham put the Hunter through it's paces 😀 I'm completely sold on these little models, thanks for tempting me back from "the dark side" (model boats)

No rush for the plans, I'm on holiday for a couple of weeks 😃

23/05/2019 18:04:23

Hi Frank,

The Mick Reeves Hurricane will fly rudder and elevator, as I found out after forgetting to connect the ailerons , managed a complete circuit and putting her down down safe, 35 years ago, On West Mallings main runway, always checked after that 😀

Thread: CAA registration consulation
11/05/2019 08:27:54

Hi All,

As model aeroplane enthusiasts, we all know we will pay the money do the test so we can carry on flying, because that's not we do, did however anybody notice the Menkind shops on most high streets stacking rc flying devices high and selling them cheap, we are an easier identifiable group to target 😕 this is a box ticking exercise.

Thread: Ben Buckle Mini Super - Build
04/05/2019 21:49:18

Well done, the Mini Super is one of my all time favorites, if your Irvine puts out blackish oily in the exhaust it is over compressed, I had one in a funfighter years ago 😃

Hi All,

As an old hand, excuse me if I missed reference to it On this thread, but back in the 60's we had to pay and have a Wireless & Telegraph Licence for our radio sets ! So we had the last 50 years free 😊 just an observation.

raven 2 150419.jpgHi All,

Here is Raven a glider designed by Jack Headley from way back when! I must have had the drawing 35 years so it was about time I got back to some balsa bashing. I have had a break 10 - 12 years from regular club flying to play with fullsize boats and model boats, having said that I have always kept my eye in flying an Electric Acrowot down my local football field. I have found the Raven build most enjoyable, the plan is available from Sarik if you fancy some retro slope soaring it's only rudder & elevator
