Thread: 1/6 Westland Whirlwind

I admire anyone who has the skill to build from scratch like this and the whirlwind is a very interesting subject.I am looking forward to following this thread.

I am coming over to Normandy in June for the D Day commemorations and will be staying near Caen for a week.

Can you tell me where the club site you go to is in Caen so I can maybe pay a visit please?

Thanks Ian

Fitted my Saito FG11's to the ply nacelle mount - perfect fit! Was worried I'd have to redo the mount holes to suit the Saito engine mount but no problem!

Do you have any photos of the installation and of the inside of the nacelles also of the inside of the fuselage please Martin. There is very little to be found on the web about this model yet except for someone flying it like a pylon racer in Vietnam and I would love to see some more detailed pictures of the parts. I quite fancy one of these.

Thanks Ian

I wondered why anyone would commit pen to paper in the letter which pointed out that the front cowl ring on a Lysander should be a metal finish and not painted...... at the very minimum the author should have included photos and a write up of his model which demonstrated how he achieved the correct finish - and without those... why put it in the mag??

Probably hasn't got a front cowl ring on his Wot 4 Stuwink

It looks really nice but a bit clean if you know what I mean, it needs some weathering.

Do you think two 52 four strokes will be powerful enough Richard now you have felt the weight?

She will float forever Tom (the aircraft not your wife) so take a deckchair when you fly.

Should be able to see it at 10000 feet with that lovely colour schemethumbs up

Opposite for me. I ordered some clevises and pushrods three weeks ago and still have not got them.

I rang last week and they said they were waiting for them to come in stock but did not bother letting me know that was the situation until I contacted them.

Poor service in my opinion.

Leeds model shop is 100 times better for fast service and I believe they have control of their stock so they tell you before you order if its not in stock.

Will not be ordering any more stuff from Gliders.

gillyg1, I used 9g minis. as long as your throttle pushrod is not binding it will be fine.

13/09/2017 14:46:53

No probs Richard. Here is another one.

Thanks for the kind remarksthumbs up

Thread: Spitfire Aerial fitting ideas
12/09/2017 09:34:35

Many thanks to everyone who replied, there are some great ideas there.

I forgot about the wonder of magnets and just how powerful the very small ones are these days.

Will go and have a play with all the ideas now.

Hi Everyone, I have a Tony Nijhuis Spitfire 72 and would like to fit a Radio mast/aerial to it but want it to be 'knock off able' in case I tip the airframe on its back or hit it with my arm etc when rigging it. I have seen a few ideas in the past with springs as the base or screwing it into a blind nut or even using an pencil eraser.

Has anyone used or seen a great idea used that protects the airframe should it get knocked off please

Cheers Ian

With an electric motor that would be no problem Tom. I think the reason for the bulbous sides at the front was to maybe hide the cylinder head of the engine more than anything else. It would look sleeker if you narrowed it down a bit. It will be interesting to see it like that. I now live in the North of the UK and we don't get the sort of light winds here for a Sunduster unfortunately.

I have built and flown a couple of these in the early eighties Tom and can fully recommend it. I once caught a thermal and ended up in the air for about an hour and a half, It floats on and on. Not sure how the weight of lipo will affect it. Looks great with translucent film covering as well and is a dead simple build. Enjoy.

Take a look at the paint that Kings Lynn models Stevo. They have some pretty good luftwaffe colours.
