I agree with Doc, ‘cellophane’ is the thing to cover a plan with, commonly called Florist Wrap on eBay. No glue will stick to it. It was used for laminating fiberglass back in the day.

Our field is still being cut. With the added advantage that at the end of the year we could end up with a few lamb chops.

Thread: What's flying over your house
24/04/2020 13:04:14

I don't know what's flying over my house, but they bite !

2 weeks ago I got 16 bites on one arm and last week about six on my leg.

Never felt a thing until several hours later when they started to itch.

Thread: Ebay sellers...

This one is curious. Not because of the model. Why would you need a lawn mower when you have imitation grass ?

I'm remaining optimistic for the time being John, this in many ways, appears to be the kick up the jacksey we all needed to wake us up.

Lemmings gather in large numbers and throw themselves off the nearest cliff.

There is nothing proven that those which survive learn anything from the experience.

Back to the original question.

I will not be changing my buying rationale.

Do I want it quickly = where is the nearest shop ?

Do I want it cheap = ebay (Ali express, HobbyKing, etc)

Do I want quality = check internet prices = then talk to LMS

Did you know all Radio Active components are manufactured in the U.K. ? Many of them are repackaged (for other distributors) and people think they are imported !

There are two main reasons for Chinese goods being cheaper. 1. goods are sold at less than manufacturing cost in order to get foreign currency. 2. China has a discount on international postage as it is considered an "emerging economy".

I don't have any issues with quality manufactured goods from China (I do from America). However I do have issues with people who import from China and sell goods, which they purport to be "quality" items when they most certainly are not.

Thread: Benefits of the lockdown
11/04/2020 13:10:44

This current situation is starting to have an effect on the build / attrition rate of models.

Thankfully I have now found some more space in the house. How is everybody else coping ?

Oh dear ! teeth 2

Hope you haven't got any small plants in your garden, because you soon won't have !!!

Fortunately I had finished drinking my tea.

Thread: Plane resurrections pbs america
08/04/2020 11:26:51

Saw the Yak 3 "resurrection".

What a pile of rubbish ! I thought it was going to be about a rebuild, not a hanger queen. It was just a story about an aeroplane with moving pictures. Built in the 1960's and now made to look like a WWII warplane.

There was some good historical stuff though.

I would hesitate to cover a Super 60 in film! Nylon or Solartex (if you can find any) would be much more suitable. I had a nylon covered one for many years. It was only a high-speed argument with a barbed-wire fence that finally destroyed it! blush



Super 60 - High speed ?

Isn't that a contradiction ?

Did the wing come off and it plummeted to the ground (followed by the wing, several minutes later).
