Flyer is there any (inadvertent commas) >>.......indoor gold spraying involved ?

Not indoor anymore blush That lesson well and truly learnt. Have now worked out a better plan wink. Have acquired a 'proper' airbrush, so will be looking at any chance to practice techniques.

As for the colour..........wait and see cheeky

Looks like some lovely work there Ade, well done!

Get that Mig painted though you slacker laugh

Cheers Andy, just packing up the car with a repaired A4 and tatty P80 (old rough hack model) As far as the Mig is concerned, paints have arrived, and am awaiting suitable weather to finish it. The pilot figure under the canopy is destined for the Mig . See you on teh slope in the morning.

I won't spoil it for those who've yet to watch it, but I have a question about predictions. What does "Nearly" mean? Both times the prediction was one out (for the quali). Do I get a point for that?

Nearly gives you half points (5 I believe)

Because my guns and radiator are magnetized onto the airframe, I just use one of those to turn my hurri on and off yes

Thanks Andy, good idea as I've magnetized the radiator too. yes

I’ve got a magnetic switch in mine (see **LINK** It is stuck to the fus side with tape and works fine through the wooden side. Make sure you position the switch behind some identifiable spot on the outside so that you don’t end up stroking the magnet all over the fus groping for the switch. In my case I hoped that I’d be able to use the bull’s eye as the magic spot but, as things have turned out, I have to wipe the bull’s backside. . .


okay, I’ve had three goes at getting rid of that smiley that’s meant to be a bracket. I give up!

Thanks Trevor, I knew I'd seen something before. Also, the way of storing the magnet is brilliant. Not too proud to pinch that idea!

Quick question; I've purchased a magnetic on off switch, and am thinking of putting it inside the fuselage , about half way up. Should I glue this in place or use tape? And will the thickness of the fuselage be a problem?

Many thanks to Peter Garsden's for the cockpit detail picture (as provided by Phil Cooke). Fingers crossed for the maiden on the Orme.

Thanks in advance
