What a lovely old thing! sadly it's missing the shroud that forces cold air over the engine.

Following with interest Simon, as you know all this printing parts goes completely over my head but I do find it fascinating.

A super 60 would be my logical choice Andy, you could happily use the electronics from your junior 60 ( fantastic choice by the way) all you would need is a couple of extra servos for the ailerones and your set!

I've always thought a model of the prototype (K5054) would look lovely, a few subtle differences compared to the production aircraft as well.

I've got Clive du cros's book " birth of a spitfire" well worth looking out for. For those that aren't familiar with it Clive built a full size replica of the prototype in wood powered by a jaguar v12 engine, very inspiring!

You could always fit a diesel, a paw 35 would power that wonderfully, nice compact silencer as well and you can get them new for a reasonable price.

personally I would give the airframe a coat of balsaloc, apparently one can use neat pva, I've never tried it but again apparently it works, give it a try on a piece of scrap first.

Anyone had any experience of using the above?

There prices seem quite good especially there "king" brand servos.

Good idea Martin although buying pre mixed fuel will work out cheaper than making your own and that's providing you can get the ingredients.....

Gentlemen shall we get this thread back on topic?

I still stand by my earlier comment in using initially the paw you already have, in fact there's nothing actually stopping you starting the build now, the decision over power can wait until later.

28/08/2019 11:51:00

Martin, build it, stick your paw in it and see how it goes, you could always re-engine it at a later date if a 20 size 4 stroke comes along.

I know what you mean about the prices of them, I would love one but there way out of my humble means...

ps: unless you didn't know paw are still going strong, excellent support for even old engines and spares if you ever need them are very reasonable.

why not fit a small diesel? A paw 19 would power that a treat, trying to squeeze a 52 into something designed for a 20 would bring all sorts of problems, prop clearance, weight and I don't think you would have much of a cowl. lovely looking model , be interested to see how the rudder are linked.

Thread: EME twin tantrum

maybe I'm being to simplistic but can't you just hold a plug against the head and spin it over and check for a spark?I trust it's got plenty of compression on the dead cylinder? im just wondering if when the insert came out a tiny bit of swarf scored the bore?

Just my thoughts.....

Very good Ken, I am getting quite attached to your jokes.

I'm glued to them, there must be a bond between us....I'll get my coat....

That paw unless it's gummed up will not not need much of a prime, a few chocked turns is normally enough.

Oh David that is such sad news, I was only thinking about him the other day.

Rest well Brian.

Immaculate work sir.

Thread: PSSA Sabre Woodpack List
08/08/2019 18:46:05

As I said I sincerely didn't mean to offend and it does look a stunning model but ( bet you knew there would be a "but"!) 19+ sheets of balsa is quite a bit extra......

Just my opinion of course..... I shall now put on my best tin helmet and go and sit on the naughty step 😂😂
