Great work thus far SR71. Been watching, silently. Loved the fullsize since I was a sprog. Fascinated in how you are going to make the model and how it performs when finished.

Yep had a fantastic day there on Sunday. Watched great flying and met loads of old(er) mates and made some new ones. Mooched around the Retailers and had some good purchases and chats/laughs with them too - great to put faces to names and/or disembodied voices on phones. Another great big THANK YOU to the BMFA and all others involved in the arrangements.

So sorry to read of Bill's passing. Although I never knew Bill, I did benefit from him and his work because, like many others, I had a number of Merco engines in the past. RIP Bill, enjoy that big Flying Field and Thank You.

There is no Yak 3 at Kiev Museum. I believe the aircraft shown by Bucksboy is a much modified Yak 50 made to look roughly similar to a Yak 3

Balsa cement: Uhu Hart

PVA: Vitalbond Westbury Express - dries hard and enables it to be sanded if necessary unlike some PVA that dry "rubbery"

Epoxy: Z Poxy or Devcon depending on availability in LHS

Superglue: Usually Zap or anything available in the LHS
