Dark green Solartex and a couple of coats of satin fuel proofer

Took about 3 weeks to build,not flown yet and it will have to be hand launched.

it will not be me doing the test flight,need someone with fast reactions I think.

The Cambria Spit shows optional u/c but these fun fighters don't look right with u/c dangling.

stay cool

Just chucked this one together last week,Cambrian Hurricane,got given two kits,the Hurricane from Cambrian and a Spit. from Cambria so the Spit. is next.

Easy build kits,spares are readily available for the Cambrian models, eg. pair of foam wings £25 Decals £10 and canopies at £6.

As you say KC, Parky was a very skilled pilot,you had to be to fly the HG,his prototype went home in a bin bag more times than I can remember.

he eventually got it right and as its name implies it was a hairy little model,if I remember correctly he had a Taipan 15 rear exhaust up front.

apologies to John for straying off topic.

Definitely the 48",got it in the car fully assembled,the Enya 60 fs was never a powerhouse,the model was flown by the late Brian Park ( designer of the Hairy Gnome ) and it flew very well,got snapped up by a club member shortly after the first flight.

so that's why the engine wont start,it's a slope soarer
