Best resin I've used yes

Shouldn't there be fins on Sabre tanks?

Thread: Large wing tube supplier ?
28/04/2020 10:52:18

I use Easy Composites for the tube and make the outer as above.

Are you going to drop in a pair of 6x9's too? laugh

Thread: Poorly OS40 repair
16/04/2020 22:00:50

Ignore the negativity Jon, I've enjoyed following this second chance at life for the OS and your clear explanations. 20 years in F1 could have been catering for all we know laugh

A P51 canopy??? surprise

Thread: Stand or sit
08/04/2020 09:27:36

I stand for the cutting and gluing etc, sit for jobs like soldering.

What's the final weight Peter and have you calculated a wing loading?

Thread: Chrome covering
02/04/2020 19:38:46

Or it's not an issue. I haven't seen any conclusive studies with results and the link above is anecdotal at best.

02/04/2020 18:13:53

The aerials are completely inside the fuselage, not even in the canopy.

02/04/2020 17:06:08

I've been flying a model covered ompletely in chrome profilm for couple of years with no issues at all.

Thread: Sabre made in Belgium

...and they won't let water in where it's wetter.

Thread: What weight cloth for Cowl?

There are many options so expect different answers. East Coast Fibreglass do several and their service is excellent. My preferred choice at the moment is from EasyComposites and can be had in small quantities:

I'd recommend sending away for it, better results and easier working. It's the one consistent theme in the advice.

How big is the cowl Erflog, that will have a bearing? Personally I'd start with 2 layers of 200g twill and go from there, maybe some additional local reinforcement where the mounting screws go. Also, why polyester? It's heavy, brittle and poor working time. Epoxy all the way

Thread: Neil's attempt at a first scale model!
04/02/2020 22:47:06

The above holds true for long ducts, for short ones on things like airliners they're best left open.

Neil, it's to do with surface area and form drag. A few years ago a back to back test was done on the Orme with an EDF Hunter, propulsion removed. Initially the intakes were open but the model struggled to build any momentum. The intakes were then covered with tape and performance was significantly better. Same model and conditions otherwise.

Thread: Drone laws 2020

Can I suggest an admin moves this thread into a 'general' section? This part of the forum is supposed to be for PSS mass build discussions.

Edited to add: ......or better yet close it as this topic has been done to death.

Thread: Custom wiring

Bruce, if you're local to Oxfordshire I'm happy to help.

Thread: Dave's F-86 build
12/11/2019 08:57:53

Personally I really liked your camo one so I'd be cracking on with that! Plenty of camo Hurricanes flown from the last mass build without any issues.

Plenty of time too, they seem to go together pretty quickly from what I've seen on here.
