Thread: The Few Are One Fewer

156 views and one reply...poor show, if it wasn't for chaps like this things would have been very different...

Thread: Radio Queen ailerons

As others have said adding ailerones will spoil it and possibly over stress the wing, may I suggest if you fancy a vintage style model with ailerones you build a super 60.

Thank you, I may try some, apologies for spelling 'dye' incorrectly!! I'm frankly awful at spelling....

Google lightweight Vilene interfacing. Glue and shrink with dope. Does not shrink much with heat. Compound curves easily covered. Cost effective and worth experimenting with. Available at haberdasheries. Consult wife for further info.

Sounds interesting! can it be died with fabric die? or do you add colour with dope etc?

Exactly wingman, really wouldn't bother messing about with glue..

Totally agree Tigerman, really don't understand why chaps use them?

why not support a UK model shop?

"Outerzone" is your best bet.....11 odd thousand planes, 3 added everyday!

Thread: Thin section hardwoods?

my local shop ( addlestone models) has quite good stocks of small section wood, take a look, they have website.

Polyester eats foam and generates heat as it cures.

Thread: source of 2mm Depron?

Thread: Veron Avro 504N

What a lovely project Robert! real good old fashioned aeromodelling.

On a simular vein I'm seriously considering a mercury tiger moth as my next project, kits available from the vintage model company and outerzone have the plan.

Do keep us posted with progress.

Jon, take your undoubted knowledge and skills and walk away my friend.

Absolutely gorgeous Manish, I've got a painting of that particular moth hanging on my wall.

no phone, no website, no stock and no one there?

'niche' product or not, bloody poor way to run (haha) a business.

Thread: Found in a field!
04/10/2019 08:14:06

Ha! I can beat those, years ago I was flying a motor glider in a big field local to me when my wife walked over to me and said "there's a elephant behind you", "yeh right" says I, glanced over my shoulder and nearly passed out, 20 feet away was a fully grown nelly complete with handler. Turned out there was a circus in town and the elephant was being taken for her morning stroll.

7 fatalities apparently....very sad, of course all the "antis" will now be calling for vintage aircraft to be grounded.

Thread: Piano wire
01/10/2019 16:05:00

Spot on for swg Peter, I always refer to my Zeus book for conversions, for a few pounds a copy should be in every modellers armoury.

01/10/2019 14:12:21

Thanks Peter, the "stuff" I have been buying has measured up spot on for diameter.

01/10/2019 13:08:53

Anyone know of a supplier of good quality piano wire? The last few lengths I've bought from my local model shop have been rubbish, soft with little if any spring, I suspect it's just thin mild steel.
