Thank you all for visiting and commenting, gents.

It really keeps the mojo up. yes

I was a bit surprised today that the epoxy still was a bit tacky. I decided to leave the cleaning up for later and I will leave the central heating turned on as the outside temps are very close to the freezing point nowadays.

I took some measures and decided that I will use the kitchenette to paint the Dog bits instead of converting the old garage box. idea

I'll need to modify the small kitchen into a 'spray booth' with the help of large sheets of painter's masking plastic, but I guess I'll enjoy the fact to have some correct heating, some decent light and even an extracting fan... hot cake cocktail

Cheers & stay prudent all


Just be mindful that any fumes from spraying inside may take several days to dissipate.......... Don't ask how I know blush And great progress Chris

Well done Pete, shows that consistency matters!

Many thanks to John P for the organisation.

A little surprised, yet pleased to sneak in blind side for third.

All in all, a fun season, and a nice distraction from day to day events. (And I beat my lad for 2nd year in a row ! Better luck next year Stu cheeky).

And thanks to all for taking part, it makes for a little bit of fun.

Thanks Glynn, shims arrived this morning.

Now I need to finish the models on the bench to get this going.


Thread: ARTF SU27 Conversion to Slope
15/11/2020 14:22:43

It's 1.46m wingspan and 1.7m long. Quoted weight for power is under 5kg. I am expecting somewhere around 3kg, and the wing area is huge. Hopefully it will be in the 'mid wind range'.

It is covered with that pre printed oracolor type film, which I will consider spraying once I have test flown it. If it flies well, I may spend a bit more time on it.

3D Printed Jet Exhausts1.jpgLast year I acquired a part complete Vmar SU27 Flanker. The intention is to PSS it. There were several bits missing, so I've managed to get my lad to design and print the exhausts. I have had to make the air brake, and I am unsure yet whether to mould one in the same way that Dirk made his F86 ones.

Anyway, here's a taster.

cheeky What do you think!! I've only just opened the box. Looks very interesting. Also, just received plastic 1/72nd kit to use a basic reference.

Will commence once I've built the wings for the F86 and TF86.

Close Peter. As far as I can gather, it was designed as a trainer, and I believe only three were made, yet only pictures of two survive. As an aside, my version will be the one that crashed........

Chris's version I believe was developed for carrier use, but I may be wrong on that. No doubt Chris will confirm in due course.

Very nice Martin, glad to see that the canopy looks about right. I finally have two fuselages that have been glued together, and will be tackling the tail ends this weekend. Work's been the priority since April, so have had my time severely limited. Am currently printing the final pilots for the TF86, and will then be in a position to commence on the wings.

Should have some time over Xmas to finalise both.

Again, superb looking model.

Nice work Martin. Expected completion date of mine is early February! How does the weight compare to the single seater?

Many thanks Richard, nice package arrived this morning. I will have jars available later for when I open it so that I can bottle the aroma of a freshly cut kit. I think there could be a market for 'Au de Balsa'. I reckon that could become a best seller!




Thread: Limited Company, annual accounts and accountancy fees

I would suggest that you change the requirement to an 'audit' to 'an independent examiner's report'. If an auditor is required, the work a suitably qualified auditor needs to do is more than an independent report. That should satisfy Companies House, and should reduce your accountancy fees.

I believe that people misuse the term 'audit', and you should only require an independent examiner's report. But make sure the articles of association (the document creating the company and defines its powers) shows that an audit is not required.

If you'd like to pm me Peter, I'd be happy to clarify. (it's my day job!)
