Thread: Kyosho 90 Spitfire retracts
27/03/2013 15:25:31

Hi Gineral, You may have to take the retract out, I'm afraid - the leg tends to be retained by grubscrews through the pivot position, which will be hidden inside the model at present!

Recognise the Cambria Pioneer in the 6th picture, Stu - I'm just finishing one off! Hope to maiden it this month.

Say hi to fellow forumite Bob Gadd from me when you're next there. You're in good hands there, they're a terrific bunch!

Stick my nom de plume in the plumed hat, if you please!

Thread: Brrrrrr, winter's here, how much flying are you getting in?

Great flying weather in Dundee on Sunday, although there's still a fair bit of water on the field. Chairman Kenny maidened his Phoenix P-47 Thunderbolt in his usual spirited fashion.



Four of us had the now-compulsory Sharkfaces, all electric powered and on 3-channels. Absolute mayhem in the air!

Thread: Ebay sellers...

Ahhh...but is it a B29 or a B50?

Always interesting, and often educational!

Thread: Engine without markings, anyone work out what it is
03/02/2013 10:19:20
Yup, it's definitely an MDS 40. I have one, in it's hard polystyrene box, in front of me as I write. It has the digits 08.92.1503 cast or stamped into the edge of the mounting flange opposite the exhaust.
P.M. me for a scan of the instruction leaflet.

Don't forget to put some contrasting trim on your model, Tom- it's very easy (especially with grey skies) to lose orientation on an all-white model. My late brother-in-law landed a glider on the roof of a bakery because he didn't know which way it was going!

26/01/2013 11:48:05

It's not the waiting for parts, Tom - the longest wait is always for suitable weather for a maiden flight!

Be patient, it will all come together!

Certainly looks very similar, Michael. Why not P.M. Jeff2Wings to ask whether the Super Tiger has the plastic upper deck?

24/01/2013 19:15:29

Hi Michael, The Wik Tiger plans are available as a free download from HERE

Thanks, BEB, that's the most sensible explanation of H&S I've seen anywhere!

Thread: February 2013 issue feedback
21/01/2013 22:50:30
What does look wrong in the Zero article is the caption to the top photo in page 95.... Tut tut, Mr. Whittaker, the model 32 didn't start service deliveries until April 1942....pedantic or what?
Thread: Won't supply to Scotland - Kings Lynn for a start, but who else?
17/01/2013 14:58:47

Hi BEB, I deal with HK's U.K. warehouse, which isn't too far from King's Lynn, and they can deliver goods North of the Tay at no extra cost, and in a reasonable time (two days is normal) - and they are a pretty hard-nosed business!

I just prefer not to deal with a company that treats us like foreigners - although we may be in a few years!

17/01/2013 13:35:51

Why give a company which treats residents of Scotland's third city like second-class citizens a second chance?

It's actually CDO - with all the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be!
Thread: The Saito thread!

I have a 45S with open exhaust powering my little Ercoupe. Sounds lovely.
