Thread: APC tiny bite
14/12/2017 11:30:46

Once spent ages trying to start a PAW 15 with APC prop, as a precaution I was wearing leather gardening gloves, after some time and many attempts I felt as if my finger we getting wet then found the glove and finger badly cut. Used a chicken stick there after.

Music as you fly, Why?

It seems that many people today are not able to do any thing without some drug addled pop star screaming in their ears or another spouting rap cos he can't sing for ??This will mean that even with a quiet electric model they will not be able to hear when the motor stops.

Sadly that seems to be the case in many small rural villages, the price of a 'place in the country'

Just a small point, the law that allows Americans the right to be armed was started when there was very little law enforcement and the 'native Americans ' were trying to protect their lands against the 'white -man', The weapons available at that time were mainly non- automatic and often muzzle loaders . Times have changed and so have the weapons available. but the law has not kept pace with technology.

I watched the program again last night ( I had seen it when first broadcast ) then I thought , footballers, news readers, comics ,pop singers and lots of 'party contributors' get knighthoods !

Does that make you feel proud to be British?

Painting clear plastic (pop bottle) mouldings, if done on the inside gives a good high gloss finish. Great for cowls.

Thread: Useful Yoghurt Pots Maybe
16/09/2017 11:38:24

Many years ago people used the black bases from plastic bottles for cowlsthen they stopped making them then Alex Whittaker designed a scale model using a soup pot as a (very convincing) cowl then they changed the type of pot, Be warned if you think this will be useful, stock up now.
