Thread: SIG Kadet LT-40 Build - My first proper build!
19/07/2019 16:52:58

Transparent Yellow would look gorgeous, with a hint of brown or green trim for the vintage look.. wink 2

I prefer No11 blades.

Happy for you, congrats.. I know how exciting it is when you get a new model in a box. You can't wait to open it and see what goodies are inside.. laugh It's like being a kid at Christmas!. I see you've got all quality gear there, it should build into a super model. Ditch the plastic spinner for an aluminium one.. I know I'm jumping the gun here but any thoughts on covering? I think transparent blue and white (Oracover) would look great like on the Sig Rascal. Don't use black on leading edge, not visible when landing.

Enjoy the build.

Whenever I use cyno I keep Debonder handy., just in case! 🤓. I only use thin ca - for furry hinges

Also methylated spirit when working with epoxy

Yes, and overcharge quite easily! Not good for any battery.

13/07/2019 14:07:22

And I'd say an iMax B6 charger is well within your capabilities to use. Not difficult for any man in this hobby - very simple in fact!

13/07/2019 13:46:09

Nu Me, get the iMax B6 charger (original with hologram on base). It will serve you well for any batteries you will need to charge now and in the future.

You don't need to keep everything on charge.. If you use 6V quality Sanyo/Panasonic Eneloop battery 2000mAh (low self-discharge) for the receiver/servos and charge once, then it's ready whenever you wish to fly. Same goes for the Tx battery and glowstick. Later on you can upgrade to a 2cell LiFe batt for the Rx to save weight etc.

Very nice David, love the detail. What make of paint did you use? And pilot?

Mine is covered in silver glosstex. Heavy but nice!

Tim, it would be great to see a build log when you start on your Chipmunk. Yes, oleos are a must on such a model and cockpit detailing - dials and such. There's so much scope for detailing on this one, rivets, leg fairings, landing light etc.

I missed W&W this year, there's Cosford next weekend, possibly. Definately want to go to the Nationals for the weekend in August.

Ps. What bargains did you all get?? - I'm nosey. laugh

Tim, congrats on acquiring the Slec Chipmunk. It was originally made by Apache Aviation and builds into a very impressive 1/5th scale model. I have one, yet to fly it.. The new version can be made with 2 piece wing.

You do need a nice scale pilot (bust), it has a huge greenhouse canopy.

Thanks for explaining Tim.

I'm always amazed at what modellers can achieve with will and determination. I would have found that kind of repair quite daunting. Tacking with cyno is the first step and working in sections helps. I repaired my PC-9 a few times and she flew better than ever, but a broken fuse esp in that area is not for the fainthearted... laugh

Out of interest, did you use finishing epoxy with the fibreglass or regular 30 min?

She looks beautiful.. Well done Tim!

If there's any pics of the repair please put them up.

Happy belated Birthday Gary & David. Congrats. May you have many more flying years to come!

I think this thread will run and run. It can do - if no-one upsets anyone. angel 2

David Ashby, of course..!! So John you're chummy with upper management.. laugh

13/06/2019 22:17:03

David - the guy who's living it up in France!?

13/06/2019 22:00:41

Good thread John, I love to hear peoples' good news stories. It helps greatly in keeping a positive frame of mind. I'm all for Positivity! Don't get me wrong I can moan and groan with the best of you's but I choose not to today.

I've got health issues and concerns but no point dwelling on any of that right now. I have peace of mind and contentment right now and a lot more for which I am really grateful. Gratitude goes a long way, so does humour. You guys are so funny!

Summer is here - lots of great flying to look forward to. cool Once the rain clears!

All is well..

Percy, you're getting your water for half the price compared to what we pay here down south. We're getting ripped off.

And you have lovely sweet soft water washed down from the fells. laugh

Ahh,, the Lake District.. God's green land. We need the rain to keeps things nice and lush.

Am I the only one who loves the rain!
