Thread: Quicker build using Cyano?
22/06/2018 08:48:04

Yes cyano is indeed incredibly fast.

Of course, you have to add the time spent in A&E getting your fingers detached from whatever got itchy just after you completed the tailplane


Thread: computer problems

Hi Guys, and thanks for all that help.

I've cracked it. First Daithi, I installed Revo Uninstaller, which eventually got rid of the old version of Illustrator. Then, I managed to reinstall CS2 after a few firewall problems. It seems great now, so thanks again

Hi MattyB

I couldnt agree less

Of course model aero matters should predominate,but there is always a wee corner especially for non aero matters.

I have absolutely no confidence in specialist computer forums, I can't understand their jargon, and it seems Im always in danger of being scammed. Now here, I look on contributers as trusted friends. Indeed, quite a few are, and advice is freely given.

You just cannot draw a parallel with asking about servos on an IT forum. Our interests are highly specialised and not generally understood, wheras everyone on the planet has hugely strong opinions about computers

Finally my query is model orientated, I am using illustrator as a design tool for my modelling projects. In this case Dannys hawker fury

Hi Jon, I have a disc that I bought on ebay. I loaded it and all seemed well.

Next day I tried to open it, and got an illustrator window that said that loading was not complete, and I should continue with setup. When I try this, I get into a loop that ends with the error code I've already mentioned.

So I tried to uninstall the whole thing so that I could start all over again, but it won't uninstall.

My local expert says that CS2 is not compatible with windows 10, but I've run it before, and the seller assures me that he does too.

thanks ernie

Oh yes Cymaz confuse is the word..I'm really stumped CS- costs more than one of Jon's laser twins, and I know which I'd rather' have

I'm loading from a CD that I bought online The seller seems OK He'se really helpful and concerned

I've tried google Robert. I'm always a wee bit suspicious about downloading fixes because I've had some bizarrre bits arrive on the PC before...And of course I know you guys are squeaky clean, especially someopne who works for the legendary Laser Engines..Hi Jon, Im trying to load adobe illustrator CS2 onto windows 10

Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI
05/06/2018 08:44:22

Hi Guys, Before I get on to it, a few close up pix would be useful. And thanks Martyn for the offer re CAD.

I'll use Adobe illustrator for this...I never did learn CAD, Architectural school in my day was strictly adjustable set square and wooden Tee;

Hi Danny and All,

I've been looking at the Denis Bryant fury drawings, and have made a rough sketch of the bits that could be acid etched;

The minimum size they can produce is 250x100mm, so, I've allowed more bits than are needed (to allow for the bits that end up on the floor) Also, there's a windscreen frame, pitot head etc.

If anyone has close up photos, I can make them more realistic. Complex detail is no problem

Price should be less than £20, depending on how many I order. Trust me, the quality is superb;

Nothing is finalised, so i can incorporate any other bits and pieces

03/06/2018 09:42:56

Hi furious guys,

Where can I get some good closeup photos, showing details of the airframe?


02/06/2018 08:19:13

Hi Guys, Ernie is getting on with etched bits. I reckon that there are around 50 bits.. I don't have a price yet,. There is an ominous silence from the company that makes the parts; I asked for a quote last wednesday.

If I don't get anything over the weekend, I'll call them on Monday. If there's a big problem, I'll try someone else


30/05/2018 07:38:34

hi Furors, Of course we need some idea of cost, I'll try to get a quote for 10 sets


29/05/2018 16:29:11

Hi Danny, I've been looking at the plans for the Hawker Fury. What a great project.

There are quite a few wee brass bits to be cut out.

If there is enough interest, I could prepare artwork to have them acid etched. Also, I could include windscreen frames, pilot goggles, buckles, and any other bits. The quality is superb, and a huge amount of detail can be included.

Its expensive for one or two, but, the more we need, the more the price comes down

Thread: Any French speakers who can translate a few bit of a model plan for me?
26/04/2018 07:56:20

Hi Brokenenglish,

That's really useful. Do you use the modelisme forum? I've been thinking about it for a while.

Do you live in france? there are quite a bunch of us, we met up at the world championships at Maramande Mon dieu, that was 4 years ago
