I saw the title to this thread and immediately thought it was going to be about comical alien creatures from another world, making mashed potato.

I blame Cadbury's...... wink

I think it is Brian 😳🤪🤭😂

Thread: Panic! Damaged prop shaft threads - can't fully unscrew retaining nut. Help please!

I would recommend buying a die and "rearranging" the thread rather than using a second nut as the die will win and the nut might not! Just tighten the prop nut and use the prop to hold the shaft steady as you run the die up the shaft.

All good suggestions here but I used Peter’s way to sort a very similar problem with a MVVS 1.44 twin and saved the threads and it has been good ever since.

steve1590 is the guy you are looking for. A friend got the RR fus. earlier this year and it was very nicely done. He's not listing fus'es at the moment, but in the listing linked, he does state that he can make to order and put you in touch with a wing man (which I think is Billkits)


It’s Phillip at Cloud models that does the wings although I am sure Billkits can as well, Phillip has them on file and can cut with servo in the centre or 2 servos, 1 in each half like I have with mine.

Spent many an hour at Andrews field back in the day, was somewhat shocked to see all the industrial there a few years ago but it had to happen I guess.

On the subject of Polish pilots Lanny Lanowski is not widely known, a Polish colleague who was very much into WW2 aviation and around the time the film 303 came out which he thought was pretty poor had not heard of him, I and many other visitors to the Fighter Meet shows at North Weald in the early 80’s were lucky enough to meet this guy who had an R/C model, built as static, of a P47 on top of his beige mini metro, he had various memorabilia on a table in front of him, initially you thought he was selling stuff off but no it was far better than that, he was telling of his flying exploits in Poland, UK and finally the US Airforce, this was my first of many encounters and most pleasurable audiences with Witold ‘Lanny’ Lanowski.

His son Krys keeps a Facebook page to honour his Father and he does talks on the subject and what a subject!

Lanny’s book ‘Out in Front’ is a must read for those that thrive on wartime pilot biographies like I do.

Hi Geoff

As per Cavemans link if you can't print out the plan from Outerzone ADH have it for sale.

It was a free plan, I have had a look for it but can't find it at the moment other wise you could have had it.

Nice Doc, very nice.

Ain’t that the truth Rich, I obviously joke about her hitting, the truly terrifying thing is the look and one word ‘r-I-g-h-t’ once that happens I am worried. 😳😂

14/11/2020 21:24:28

Thanks Paul, I am peeing with impunity then I remembered I am back home now! 🙄😳😂🤣🤪

I know all I have done is dropped by with some inane nonsense on this thread and nothing to do with the model in question, I can attest to the quality of Richards designs and kits, they are well thought out and the kits excellently produced, the P51 is one of my personal favourites and if I were doing one it would either be the A 36 Apache based on the P 51B or the Kermit Weeks P 51B in Tuskegee colours in Fantasy of flight Polk City Florida, I was lucky enough to be shown around it and in it many moons ago and the Tuskegee airman have been a point of interest for years.

Alas I would love to join you in this project especially having just read through the whole thread ( I had missed quite a bit) but the last good while has seen problems with my mobility, ageing parents and their failing health and a milliard of other things to conspire against me but I do have plenty of projects to be getting on with, the La7, 109 and 110 to name but a few, the 109 is up first.

So I will be looking in to see your progress with a bit of a lump, Missus has an excellent right hook, and see how you are getting on, enjoy this excellent of kits.

I will know you will inspire me to get my finger out! 😂
