I see Sweep is still 'tanked' up in the pictures. I thought you said he was reformed!

Did Jon lead him to stray from the path? You know what these IC types are like always 'piston broke'...

Urm Richard did you mean to post this on the first thread??

I shouldn't take the micky when I visited Richard he told me about the up and coming 110 kit and was the same but more of will it fit in the 'hangar' or won't it...... it might squeeze in there or maybe there ... no wait there?

Looking really good. Can't wait but still can't decide which version.


It's the year 2325... after the nuclear holocost in a bunker sits Graham looking at his beloved BF110 box......still unopened, a C or even an E wait wait no an F mmm maybe not.....

To be continued......

As promised.... more info hot of the modelling table.

Good quality vacuum formed parts these are of a good thickness so are quite sturdy.

As you can see by the cowling I have opted for a late version G and will be schemed to the one at RAF Hendon's museum.

The kit also has a cockpit plate to get you started in the 'office'

The laser cut parts are of a high standard. Hats off to Richards man here as the Spitfire, my first balsa build, had some heavy scorching and required a lot of carbon removal before gluing, these are perfect.

I think Richard may have been right to keep Sweep away from the beer!

The wing panels are well protected in the box and I will store them as such until needed but had to have a peek !


Now as this is my first foam cored build and for any other Noobs amongst the gang the marks on the veneer is a natural wood colouring and NOT dents, I had a sharp intake of breath when I first saw them but to prove a point.

The next step for me as a lesson I learnt from the Spitfire build (you old hands are no doubt not worried about this but us noobs need help) was to mark the tail feather ribs with a marker pen BEFORE releasing them from the sheet as they are very small differences in lengths and I didn't want to have to start measuring them and trying to sort them out later.

I am going to build the tail as suggested in the manual and at Richards advice then the engine nacelle's so the area of domestic disruption and ear bashing is kept to a minimum. Well I am chomping at the bit here so more later

Thought for the Day...

If Richard can organise and have this little lot sorted and out to us at such a short notice maybe we ought to put him up for the next election for the main position. Show 'em how it's done!

Hi Jon

Nice to put a face to a voice.... I did think for a moment Richard had used one of his pupils to model for the picture..wink

Huh Richard isn't the only one who gets a helper..

Found this guy at compare the exhaust .com

... are admitted to an institution we can at least arrange our building tables in a circle and keep each other company.

No luck there Jon et al. In "an institution" they would'n't let us have any sharp knives crying

Don't ask how I know..............laugh

SHARP KNIVES oh now I know why i was struggling. 'Throws away the plastic spoon'....

This will help with the variants guys... be prepared to be confused to which one you want to model he he he

Just thinking out aloud guys.

Has every one who wanted a kit let Richard know what exactly they want included in the Kit bundle?

We all have talked about what version we my do but IF Richard hasn't had a List how does he know what to order up in terms of types of spinners, whether you want retracts?, Oleos, Wheels?, Motors? Props?

Otherwise we may end up leaving him with a stock of parts not needed and we are all aware of the tight financial constraints this hobby operates on.


Just thinking...

So maybe we should discuss the merits of IC verses Electric to help people on the fence ?

Well the plus for electric...

No restrictions on what time you fly due to noise.

This leads to less crowded airspace = more flying time!

No more oil trails across the wings to clean up.

No receiver being shaken to extinction but those single cylinder vibrators. (Sorry Jon)

No tea pots sticking out of your cowling........wink

Nice one

looking forward to the build thread when it starts. Got a few ideas too. Will share if they come to fruition, need to research a little first.
