Thread: Flyer's Sea Hurricane Mk 1B
28/03/2019 21:16:51

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

No problems in moving the canopies northwards Adie, the large Tonka's are being produced not far from me!

Have a great few days guys, sorry I cant get there. See you all in April, with a few new models. (and a Hurricane at last).

May 2019 put plenty of wind under your (PSS) wings.

Looking good Dave. Apologies for delay in canopy, although things are back on track now. On reflection, it's a large area, so have gone down the mdf plug route. Here's a taster.....


Certainly a large brute! Hope to be pulling the plug next weekend, so should be with you shortly after. Just got to glass the surface to ensure that it is smooth for forming.

Well done Pete, and everyone who's taken part. Guess I was lucky to end up where I did.

Will have to do better next year!

Hi Gary,

I've used those Grip Fixings, and I'd obtain shorter screws, but same thread. The fixings takes the weight; the screw just holds it tight to the wall/fixing.

How are you making the canopy plug without a finished fuselage Ade?

From the Plan Andy; there should be enough excess around the edges to cover any small errors. I've checked the dimensions with Dave, so should be within a reasonable tolerance. Or he will need to bodge a fit blush

Several fingers and toes crossed !

Looking good Dave. Hope to have workable canopy plug finished in next two weeks. Hopefully have some workshop time over the weekend; if so, will post up some progress pics.
