Thread: Harrier Jump Jet- The aeromodelling Holy Grail !!!!
11/10/2017 22:49:28

Fantastic Roll on the 2018 special!

​I would imagine the same principles could be applied to the Harriers replacement the F35 JSF. The latest Hawk is absolutely brilliant Tony and I thank you immensely for all of your plans that you have done so far...the Harrier though is something else though and if an F35 came into the fray one day that really would be some 'Next Level Sh..owmanship! That Pegasus fan is awesome to Andy Meade also is it functional and been tested in a model yet?

​Kindest Regards

Hi Tony

is there any chance that you could produce a plan for your Harrier design to fly in conventional layout,but with a few suggestions(based on your personal experiences) for people to have a go at the VSTOL idea themselves? It would be a great shame to confine to the history books a design that you've worked so hard on just because of the complexities you've encountered and overcome with success as its a great design even if most will only achieve conventional flight

​Kindest Regards

Hi Tony,

I'm no expert at all! But how about fitting inside the Harrier some small robust helium filled balloons so you can have some just above ground buoyancy then let the propulsion from the swivel fans do the rest? This would hopefully mean that you could use lower powered fans and lighter batteries etc. There is no guarantee of it working,but would be a fun debunking experiment nonetheless!

Looks superb anyway though!

Kindest Regards

January 2017 RCM+E looks another corker,

But what happened to the Chris Golds massive Fiesler Storch being the free plan? Probably to big at over 100 ins!

Oh well still RCM+E is the number one model aviation publication in my mind!

Wow That's Awesome Steve,

Are you going to model it and get plans into RCM&E? Unorthodox designs are brilliant and so different they just capture the imagination,which is what modelling is all about. A great find the Rutan Longeze and Acroeze would also make good modelling subjects AMS OIL and Pushy Galore also. Even if you don't model it thanks for sharing a fascinating subject sir

Thread: AMAZING GIANT SCALE RARE BOULTON PAUL P.111 "YELLOW PERIL"
26/07/2016 11:13:11

It's Absolutely gorgeous,

Would love to see a plan of one by Tony Nijhuis in the magazine as prefer traditional balsa/ply structure.It is however something I could see Cyril Carr doing after seeing his Avro Arrow. Do you have any details of the wingspan,weight and turbine its powered by Peter?

Many Thanks for showing us all such a wonderfully unique,good looking,rare and undermodled British aircraft.

Kind Regards

Thread: Modelling your RCM&E Cap
18/07/2016 23:16:34

Agreed Shaunie,

I think The prestigious RCM+E cap and maybe the equally wonderful RCM+E tee shirt would make wonderful subscriber gifts particularly in the summer if no other time!

An Amazing Machine Rich,

Congratulations you must be pleased with this one. It does look better than the Revolver 1 in that it looks very smooth and scalish. I think you have two winners on your hands with the one and two,can't wait to see the design/s

Published,Kindest Regards

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know when we'll get to see some pics of this lovely Zero crafted by the master of warbirds and jets?

Must be half built now I would think,oh and that lovely Harrier....Absolutely awesome! I wonder what colours been chosen also.

Kind Regards

Hi Tony,

Is there any update and pictures you have of the wonderful Mitsubishi Zero that you have yet Sir? BTW how's the experimenting going with that gorgeously fine Harrier going....Are you winning? Such a brave and noble project!

Kindest Regards

Thread: Revolver Pusher type Autogyro trainer
10/05/2016 17:34:05

Hi Richard,

Is the original Revolver still coming to RCM+E pages? Or is it going to be a revised smaller version,if this is the case could you make the plan for bigger and smaller versions? Bigger models do tend to fly better and seen easier however smaller models are easier to store,cheaper and get more in car take up less room! So they both have advantages and disadvantages. This one's been in the pipeline for ages....Oh well it'll be worth the wait as all your models are mate a breath of fresh air!

Cheers

Would be nice to see that in RCM@E Rich,

Would make a good indoor flyer to....If it were to be submitted is it worth giving your fantastic Uncanny design another go for resubmission as that was/is a great design from someone who is world renowned for producing auto gyros and being great at them to! BTW does anyone know when Riches Revolver is due?

Cheers

The Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero were the ones that was used in the Pearl Harbour attacks, so that may be the model with most significance to go for,having said that any of the A6M series would be good to do. Great sensible choice to make btw,should be popular!

Cheers

Oops,

Must of missed that sorry,old age is a catch up....well I am 38 today! He he. Oh wow Tony is that a Harrier I spy, how's it going? That will be extremely popular like many of your others absolutely awesome!

Steve yeslaugh

The Mitsubishi Zero is getting some more mentions now,very commercially viable I must say! A great plane, also you have the J2M(Raidon) Kawasaki KI61 ( Hien - Swallow ) Ki36 Ki100 (Tony) all good choices the same as a lot of others that have been mentioned on this thread. I think Tonys aiming for a compromise between cheap and simple builds with reasonably big commercial viability, and that's no easy task with so many good subjects out there!

Does anyone know when the choice will be announced?....The suspense is killing me!

Cheers

That's blooming Gorgeous Martin!

Looks like it has working navigation lights as well. I really wish I had your talent and patients to produce something this spectacular, it really is a work of art! So how many hours of time from start to finish have you put into this labour of love?

Cheers

That Fiesler Storch (Stork) on this month's cover looks nice as well. Would complement the TN Lysander as it was also a STOL observation plane,but OMG that cabin glazing wouldn't be easy in itself! surprise

It would be interesting to see 3 view drawings of the Piston Provost and Jet Provost T1 laid over each other to see exactly how different they both are. Wonder when the decision will be made on which subject is chosen? If a bipe is chosen, I don't think TN has much to fear as he did a dogfight double SE5A and Fokker DV something or other years ago and although all balsa sheet I believe they performed well! May I say to Tony good luck with chosen plane,I'm sure it'll be one of your best yet!

Cheers

Daithi,

Yes I agree on both levels the Piston Provost is a lot different to the Jet Provost, I guess I was basing my assumptions on the Supermarine Spiteful / Attacker where Prop/Jet share at least the same wing! How anyone can think of the Piston Provost as anything other than a trainer is beyond me! I'm going to go with Percy as I believe it would make a great first low wing scale model,easy to build, no retracts and not a bad looker / different

All in all a nice plane and Not A Warbird!!

PS I'm hoping if it does get picked that TNs version will outshine the black horse one in all aspects, as I'm sure it will!

66/70 ins like his harvard at6 Got to be a fourstroke in this plodder though!

Cheers
