|Thread: Fairey Gannet|
Oooh! My first ever 'scale' build in the 50s. It flew like the proverbial brick, even though it went together well.
The 2 engines set up has already been done, almost 60 years ago - see the1960 Aeromodeller Annual.
Page 144 shows a photo of Bruce Randle's Control Line model, using an OS15 and an OS35 - contra-rotating! Only a small photo, but it goes to show there's nothing new. It does look a bit tight in there.
|Thread: M6? Not If I Can Help It......|
Don't go south of Preston on the M6… ever!!!!!!!!
|Thread: Aileron differential|
I believe that on a full size Tigermoth, full movement of ailerons actually returned the down aileron back to neutral, having first gone down slightly, then returned as the input was increased.
|Thread: Lidl Bandsaw|
I got an Aldi suction vice with fully rotating jaws a couple of weeks ago - just £5-99. Three days later at an exhibition, I found exactly the same vice (with a different badge on) on one of the large tool suppliers trade stand - £17-99!
Who's having who on?
|Thread: Fly-In invitation from St Austell|
Sorry, can't promise, but will do my best.
I live in North Yorkshire, but…
we have friends in Trewoon, not far from your patch, so me and my Uno-Wot might just make it, but don't hold your breath… it's a long trip!
|Thread: Cover or Overlap|
The red on the fuselage/nose is Solarfilm (RIP), which just overlaps the white film by about 1/4". The red maple leaf on the wing is Solartrim, all of it on top of the white film (also Solarfilm). No problems to fit and no 'show-through'.
Hope that helps.
|Thread: hobbyking prices|
Excuse my ignorance… what lad in Jersey?
|Thread: Early flying model aircraft design books (+/- 1950's)|
Have a look on Outerzone's website, where you can now download books for FREE - including several which cover early models. Go to www.rclibrary.co.uk to see what there is.
Hope that helps.
|Thread: Wing walkways|
Get a 'taster' pot of matt black emulsion from your local B&Q or similar, paint it on, then varnish over it when it's dry.
|Thread: Litho Plate Wanted|
Try a local printer - mine just weighs them in for scrap value after use, so I get them for free.
Always worth a try, although you might have to clean them off with acetone - a simple job.
|Thread: Flying off the beach|
Are the missing bits of the rudder in the holly bush/tomato plant?
|Thread: BMFA mag's going a bit over the top?|
A big thanks to Andy - sorted out in double quick time .
I only got a single copy. However… it seems the BMFA have changed my name.
No longer am I Geoff - I am now known to them as GHENGIZ Peacock .
Whether it's Ghengiz Kahn or Ghengiz Can't (my wife's suggestion) I'm not quite sure. Better have a look at their new Portal and check. More technology to deal with, I suppose.
|Thread: November 1st|
For those of you now concentrating on Christmas…
It's November 1st tomorrow, so don't forget to get the sprouts on to boil!
|Thread: When modelling money saving goes too far...|
Totally the wrong thing to do Percy, because:
If you remove the bulb, the electricity will drip out of the bulb holder every time you open the 'fridge door…
|Thread: MAK 15 MP|
No progress at the moment Peter. I'm struggling with a bad back, so sitting at the computer for more than 10 minutes gets painful. I'll keep you posted when things start happening again.
