Thread: UK Could Be Banned From All USA Imports

I thought of a witty comment there but decided it may upset the modswink

Thread: Unwanted realism!
27/07/2018 17:08:48

Never mind the world cup and golden boot, what about Oscars and diving medals?

Some of the players antics are disgusting.

Thread: Digitised Free Plans

Take the free plan to a copy shop and get a copy or two then you can keep the original and cut up the copies as required. Nearest copy shop, see yellow pages.

Thread: When your lifestyle finally catches up with you.

Allopurinol (100mg) 2 per day sorted mine out, still get a slight touch of it occasionally but not a problem.Even as a youngster I occasionally got aches in my foot (classic big toe just like the kids comics used to show the wicked baron with heavily bandaged foot) so not booze.

Thread: Engine cutting
17/06/2018 10:27:42

Flush out the tank, carb and fuel tubes just in case it could be contamination. If you have altered the carb during the recent warmer weather it could be the engine is now over cooling.

Thread: Data protection regs
20/04/2018 16:19:11

Should club secs be worried about this when the DVLA regularly gives out information ad-hoc and many companies sell lists of names, addresses and e-mail addresses I think a sense of proportion is called for .Added to that most ISPs use cookies to collect information, and how secure is that?

Thread: New MOT Test From May 20th.......

With the smokeing exhaust being a failure, its just as well I got rid of my Wartburg (3 cyl 2 stroke).

Thread: Radio 35meg
06/04/2018 11:18:58

 The only thing against 35 MHz occurs if you still have old models with it installed but are now mainly using 2.4 in your latest models then one day decide to fly that. old hanger queen, and forget to extend the 35 Tx ariel, don't ask me how I know !!

Thread: The plane that saved Britain
01/04/2018 11:22:43

All the aircraft mentioned were important but were no use without crews. The men who flew them ( and the women who delivered them) won the war. Also important were those who built and maintained them.

Thread: wot4 on floats
24/03/2018 16:14:31

Some years back I was a member of the Reading club and they had float plane flying events some members Wot 4s on floats. The floats were made from eps by one of the members then skinned with thin ply. All flew well. I believe the same floats were used for Puppeteers.

Thread: Getting Edgy
28/02/2018 16:26:58

X-Acto was the brand name of the favourite knife when I started 60 years ago. they were available in boxed sets of three handles and a selection of blades. These sets are now copied by various makers but are often of poor quality. I have a set of the poor copies but it is in my garage so 6" of snow is stoping me from getting them and photographing then to attach to this post.

Thread: Unrecognisable ARTFs - new paint jobs!
22/02/2018 16:01:12

ARC Ready 2 was very popular trainer in my precious club so all looked alike.

Decided to make mine a bit different and used Plasticote dayglow colours aerosols in a camouflage patern to create Shamoflage.
