I have to agree, S.M.C. are in my top 3. I live in the midlands and stuff gets here the next day, at the most in 2 days.

Also they carry some obscure/hard to get stuff...I recently bought a brand new synthesized module (all channels) for my 35 Mhz optic 6 Tx.

Struts fixed and covered.

This one is finished now, so all I have to do is wait for a decent day, or until they have finished putting the new Astro turf on the field at work !!



It's A Boy !!!!!! party

I was bored waiting for the glue to dry on the Cessna so I built this cutie..60% ...8" span. I split the rubber down to 1/2, so 3/32 wide.

Hi Bob, I have one and it is useful quite regularly. I bought it second hand, and it has paid for it self many times over.

It all depends on how much building you do I suppose.

Last few the cowl and the struts.

I fitted the cowl and then realised I had not added the ballast to balance, so off it came (luckily), 6 grams of blu tac added, and back on it went. A modicum of down and right, and Hey Presto.


Glue and cowl. Plus the glazing is in too.


Another one ready to go.

Everything glued on and tissue reapplied to the centre section, and a bay in each wing.

Thanks Nigel, you are very kind. wink

Chris, I have always wanted to build a DC3/Dakota/C47..........I almost got the T.N. one a while back but I had too many models in the workshop and garage.

I have looked at the Guillows one, but I think to make it fly would be a total trauma.

As a static model it would be nice to build, as you can add a load of scale detail, without the worry of snapping bits off by flying it. It can be bought for £75 from model shop Leeds.......Tempting..... I would not blast thru the build on that one tho, it would have to be a slower assembly.

Wings being glued on the Cessna as we speak, I had to remove some tissue to facilitate the joining, this was in the plans but I thought I could get away with it by using skewers, which only partially worked......Hey Ho !!

Pics later as I'm off to buy dog food and some pigs ears...............(to go with the one I made of the wings....LOL)

Some little embellishments in the covering to keep it interesting. I also swapped the rubber motor for some better stuff. just the screen to do and that's it




This guy keeps sneaking in. LOL.

The Fokker D8's glide test was the best so far, just had to add a bit of nose weight, around 4g.

The Cessna is coming on too.



I split the rudder on this one, by adding two extra stringers.


The cowl was a useless fit in the front former, it was way too small, so I added a slab of 1/4 balsa and sanded a good chamfer on it until the thing fitted. you can see below, it doesn't come any where near it.

My first ever model shop was Dunns in Cradley Heath, Lower high Street.

The guy was a real Gent, always wore a Dickie Bow and a wastecoat. sold me my first engine (I was 15) and my first radio, which was a macgregor 2 channel. I still have both items, and in their boxes.

What a fantastic journey from start to finish, Bart. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

You have created something very special, and you have every right to be very, very proud.

We just need to see the flying video now to make the experience a perfect one.

Well done Mate....thumbs upsmile d

Had a go at making some markings out of tissue, not too bad but I put one in the wrong place and had to move it, hence the rustic look... laugh

Also got the next one on the way......

You don't have to break the bank mate, a flat surface onto which you put a sheet of 1/2" plaster board (to take the pins ) and you're away. Needs to be flat and level tho. Don't forget to put clear plastic over your plan to save it from sticking to your airframe..

Also, just wet your warpy plywood parts and pin them flat on your board and let them dry overnight, they will be cured.

All the best....
