That's what it says on my current SE5a build, and my Puppeteer and Harvard instructions.

Meybe to err on the side of caution ?

Local to me Cymaz, if you want it looking at

Thread: Flair Puppeteer record price
30/04/2020 13:46:04

Yes eBay.

Just remember you give a percentage to them after the sale, and a further percentage to PayPal if your buyer uses it to pay.

30/04/2020 12:23:06

Well, this one comes in the unbelievable category.

Its a nice flyer normally, even painted up as a pseudo German one.

But £950 ??????????

this particular seller always overprices his items, but this is a record even for him !

Thread: Flair Hannibal
28/04/2020 08:34:40

Denis, sorry I should have elaborated.

as the seller states, £55 is his price for delivery with the Spanish system he has chosen, Delivery to U.K. will be more.

Depending on the final bid price, it could all get a bit pricey with the, as yet unknown, carriage to U.K.


If you love the Flair build ( I do) and the Hannibal ( love the Magnatilla, lacking the space for a Hannibal) I guess this is possibly the rare time it will be available . . . . At a price

as an aside . . . .anyone with an untouched Magnatilla kit, I'm prepared to sell a kidney !

Thixofix used to be my choice for fuselage laminating Jeffrey, but I've not seen it in a while. On the Flair SE5a I've just started, deluxe materials Aliphatic Resin was used, with weights all over and left all night to dry. It worked and straightened the liteply. They were 18 inches long.
