Thread: Phil Beard's F-86 Sabre Build Blog

Just pm'd you Phil.

I used rattle cans on the A4 mass build Phil; from memory three can. But word of caution, do NOT spray indoors if married...…. blush

An airbrush can be used for the detailing. (I've just bought an Iwata - used off 50 litre compressor,(low pressure).

Looking forward to seeing your blog develop Phil.

Could be a great way for the 'powers that be' to show that we have adequate law already, it just needs upholding! They've explained what, where and when, so should be relatively easy to catch them in the act, and use the current law to prosecute them.

Awesome score, Ade. Congrats.

Did you paint your octopi in Skyhawk Gold as well now? ... surprise

A foreseen mid-field score for me as 2 of my drivers were DNF... and my predictions only medium-good.

Iqon > octopi only work with Ade... you'd better have some elephants... I have two 'pink Dumbos' and they perform an acceptable job (so far)... cool



The octopi are masters of colour!! And as for Skyhawk gold.......wait til you see the 2020 PSS mass build......

No No No, Only saved by getting equal points Lol. serves you right for looking over my shoulder.....

Well done " high" Flyer

Cheers iqon, not quite sure why that happened. Maybe the threat of octopi soup next week concentrated the decision! lol Well done all, and was happy to beat Stu (even with a career best 152!)

Yep, that's me. Has a few (!) tins of gold paint from my NZ 50th Anniversary A4

But this time I will NOT use the conservatory to spray the aircraft blush

Looking forward to picking mine up Martin, see you on the 'Orme. laugh



Thread: Will it PSS?

Just unpacked the box! It's got a good wing area, and will be quite light for it's size. I'm expecting around 4kg max, with a huge wing.

One question, would phenolic and aluminium tubes (19-20mm) be sufficient, or should I go for carbon tubes and rods?



Thread: Flyer's Sea Hurricane Mk 1B
01/09/2019 20:57:22

img_0551.jpgBeen able, finally, to spend a few hours on the Hurricane, before we start the next mass build. I've used the magnets to attach the radiator, and have rubbed down the resin ready for paint. Wont be ready for this coming weekend, but should be by the October meet. Fitted the magnetic switch too. Will be fitting servos etc this week, and then balancing the beast. I'm looking to use ball shot epoxied into the spinner, into which a screw thread is fitted. This will screw into the bulkhead, and ill allow a little adjustment when final balancing will take place. I also need to find where I've placed the decals...… cheers Ade img_0552.jpg

well, I've just enjoyed octopii soup in protest........ devil

(And I'd tipped young LeClerc for pole crying)

But pales into insignificance with the loss of a young driver yesterday.

I followed that MIG? all the way home.wink[ sat behind it ] Nice day out, flying curtailed some by the weather though.

Upon reflection, you are quite right John; it is a SU27 Flanker.

Anyway, good trip, a grand day out!

After a club trip to Much Marcle today, I managed to acquire a artf, which looks like it could PSS. Time will tell. Probably not get it ready by next weekend, but should be by the October meet.

I must stress that no club members were knowingly left behind to facilitate transport of said airframe. I did request that anyone not there should make that fact known!devil May put it an assembly / modification blogg if time allows.

Goodluck lads (but not that much !!!). cheeky

Have replaced the octopi so will see how things go.

Close one to call methinks. Thinks some have been sandbagging today with a view to Sunday's race.

Aha your'e right Alan, anyone know how to move it ???

30/07/2019 15:31:46

As I have copious amounts of gold paint left over from the A4 ...... this is what I am aiming for f86 golden hawk.jpg

But I will NOT be utilising the conservatory as a spray booth!!

Looked at this tonight in our local Aldi; mains powered, with disc at 150mm dia. All for £89.99..... now all I need is to persuade shmbo that it is a good deal......
