Thread: Pick a Plane 2011 - chat and FW-190 build
01/01/2011 21:19:34
Hi All,
 
If by some miricle there was a comercial aircraft chosen,it probably would be a good
choice if it forfilled all 3 rolls ie civil/military/comercial like say the DH Dragon,DH Dove/Devon,DC3/C47,Or the VC10(would love to see one in British Caladonian Colours!
All of these have forfilled the 3 rolls with success in fairly good measure.The VC10 Still does,as far as i know.As far as the voting goes hopfully most of us will be suprised in a pleasent way!................................Time will tell,good luck to all regardless of out come

Hi Papa,
 
Happy New Year to one and all when it reaches you guys,did you see our display on telly in London? Got to be our best yet! I think your idea although suggested before is great, at
least Tony probably get more satisfaction out of something he would like,more than these heated debates! Still we are a democracy i spose,and evryone is entitled to his/her opinion.
 
 
                                                    Kind Regards

I understand your veiws Erfolg and Barry,
 
But i do also beleive it is time to break the usual WW2 Trend,not that there is anything
wrong with them,coz there isnt! Is breaking the mould to hard for some people to
bear,or is it just out of their comfort zone? Remember guys does it really have to be military - WW1/2 to be iconic........I think not!  What i was mearly doing was agreeing with
Kiwi G With the decade thing example say 1950 to 1960 and get only the 3 choices
(like we,re allocated now) With a differance ie............................................................................
 
1) Military
 
2) Commercial
 
3) Civil
 
From the time period above(example) that way we would all get a vote in all of the above
3 allowing for a bit more choice other than war birds etc,after all Erfolg not every one wants fighters,there maybe novices out there that may want just 1 big easy build/fly trainer for their 1st model,please let us not get hot headed about this,it is only voteing for what we would like to see,some one some where is gonna be disapointed no matter what the choice!
 
                                                Happy New Year Guys

Hi All,
 
I did do a rough count,and put it in the other thread,but you are all right the Mosquito is
winning.I do think that Kiwi G is right though,we should only have certain decades to
chose from.That way we could have something thats different thats still commercially
viable like i,ve already seen ie Boeing 737 airliner,you cant say that our American
readers wouldn,t like it,its American and they are very patriotic just like us Brits,or how
about Concorde loved and mised the world over.I think Airliners would be a nice way to
go,maybe one day!

1 ] Avro Vulcan,loved Graham Dorshells 1 in a rival mag!
 
2] Handley Page Victor,So revolutionary for its time.
 
3] Either Concorde,VC10,TSR 2,My Grandad used to make parts for these in Weybridge,Surrey many years ago.Dont mind if pusher prop or EDF,Coz we all know its the scale detail that really counts,and who else is that best left with than TN.

Thread: R/C Roamer vintage model
03/03/2009 19:42:27
Hi Peter,nice looking little model. Hows the testing going,and what did the original fly like?
 
Looking through my magazine back issues,i noticed that you did an enlarged version of
your Yuppy Love bi plane -circa Radio Modeller 1992! called Toot Sweet. Have you any
intention of doing a scale up of the American Dragon bi plane from about the same era?
 
You dont tend to see to many bi planes published in magazines,like you used to,its a
shame because the A D was very nice looking,rather like a bi plane version of the
Bellenca Skyrocket as i recall.Anyway enough of me rattleing on have enjoyed all of your
                             plans over the years,and look forward to many more

Thread: Fantrainer

       Hi Ken,                                                                                                                                                         

       I have looked through my magazine archives,and can confirm there is a Fantrainer model

       done as a free plan in the October 1998 Electric Flight International magazine( now called

        Q&EFI) It should still be available as a back issue,as Traplet publications hold most issues

        the model is around 36ins for a speed 400 motor,if you cant get this issue,i beleive they

        have the plan at about £5 add p+p hope this helps you,model is coming along very

                                                 nicely by the way stephen!
