Thread: Trying to change e-mail address
27/10/2015 14:51:48

Hi, guys thanks for your help.

I think I have finally managed to crack it. thumbs up All as you said above Chris, but for some reason could only log in with my old address and the new password sent to me via e-mail. So, I did that then changed password.Logged out, back in again and changed address. Woo hoo it worked. Then got validation e-mail so clicked that and it now all appears OK in My Account.

Thanks once again.

26/10/2015 10:44:59

That went well, NOT.

Logged out, turned off, restarted. Logged on with every combination of e-mail address and password I could think of.

Not recognised.

Just now tried again, and to be honest not sure what I have done but here I am. Puzzled????

Just looked at my account and still showing current e-mail as the old one.

25/10/2015 17:27:47

Sorry I have been away from computer.

I usually stay logged in, but will try logging out and back in again.

I don`t really want to delete the cache as I think that removes passwords? and I haven`t been on my other sites yet to change passwords.

Danny I had not been receiving alerts either until the other day but I am now.

Thanks for your replies BEB and Danny will try later tonight and let you know.thumbs up

I am trying to change my e-mail address.

I have been to settings, my account and changed the address as required and put in my password..

Then clicked enter and it says account updated, but then when I go back my current address is still the old one.

Only thing I can think of is my password may be wrong, but cannot find any where to request a new password.

Am I missing something?

Thread: notifications

Hi, Yep bookmarked here, but still no notifications.

Will contact e-mail provider later on. Thanks.

05/10/2015 18:36:27

Thanks Pete B.

Have just tried that, just waiting now but no notifications yet.

05/10/2015 11:39:58


I am not getting any notifications from my bookmarked topics at all.

All was OK middle of last week. No spam filters or blocked senders set.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Thread: No more Flair SE5a?
24/08/2015 19:14:01

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this, so apologies in advance.

I have an old Flair SE5 kit, and a Baronette.

Both un-started and complete.

They have been taken out of the box to check contents are all there. The wing ribs and formers etc, have been removed from their carrier sheets in the SE5, but are all there.

They are die cut, NOT laser cut kits and have been stored in a warm dry place.

I have now started building a 1/4 scale SE5, so will not be building them.

£90 + £13.95 p&p each, assuming you are in UK. (Sorry will not post abroad).

Can bring to Barkston Nationals.

If anyone is interested send a pm.

Yes it is the EPO foam one.

Thank you very much for your reply.

22/05/2015 09:59:45

Hi all,

Bought one of these at Rougham last weekend.

Unfortunately the tube of glue supplied has dried up, will UHU POR be OK as a substitute?

Thanks in advance.

If only there was a way of sealing the foam so that contact with every damp worm cast or sheep pellet irrevocably left its mark on the airframe 😰

Is Deluxe Materials "Foam Armour" any good for that?

No affiliation to said company, just bought some o use on my motor glider although not used it as yet.

Much appreciated.

I managed to get through to Unitracts which I now understand is under new management in Gateshead and now in process of ordering a set of retracts from them for the Brian Taylor Mossie.

Hi, any more info on Unitracts (phone number, web site or address)? Or does the old website etc. still work?

I am in the process of "thinking" about the possibility of building the 82" Brian Taylor Corsair next winter and will need some twist and turns.

Sorry to hear about your illness Dylan. Good that things are settling down now.

Enjoying this thread even though no intention of building one.

Just sorry they are not higher resolution.

Thread: Thinning Balsaloc?
07/10/2014 12:10:09

Hi guys,

I have had a reply from solarfilm:

"Yes, you can put water in Balsaloc, give it a good stir.

If the Balsaloc has been frozen, then this is probably not possible.

Hope this helps."

So, off to stir some water into the mix I go.thumbs up
