Thread: Spring is here. Who is flying?

Saturday was the first time that I had flown a model in nearly a year. What a wonderful day ~ blue sky, gentle breeze and warm... Fingers crossed that we get a few more like this in the weeks to come.

Thank you for your update and I've just started to copy the fuzz formers over to lightply.

Morning Simon

That’s an excellent job you’ve made of the Skywriter ~ really looks the part.

Can I ask a couple of questions regarding your conversion to IC?

First, did you keep the engine’s centreline as per the plans electric setup and secondly what size tank did you use? I ask as when the plan first came I thought I would like to build that at some stage in the future but with an IC and I now have a FS52 sitting around doing nothing. But, placing the engine on the centreline and using a yellow Slec tank, the tank has to be placed somewhat lower than idea due to the fuselage cabane strut mountings. Did this cause any issues?

I thought you were a lot older than 20 (XX above)cheeky. Happy birthday and I hope you had a great day.


Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI
02/08/2017 13:47:05


Do you think a laser 100 would be OK or a little OTT for the Fury? I've got one currently awaiting a new airframe.

Morning Ken,

I don't think that's the Bryant Fury, but one by another designer that is part of the Flying Scale Models mag. From memory, I think it's a little smaller as well.



Thread: New Laser engines. What do you want?
28/07/2017 14:01:43

Is that Oliver Hardy in the back... wink

love the model though.

Thread: Dunkirk
27/07/2017 15:34:03

I really liked the movie even if you could driver a bus through some of the facts. The aerial work was really good and there are some fantastic shots taken from the airfield they used down south.


I love the He111 model ~ does anyone know who built and flew it?


Thread: Suggestions please
27/07/2017 06:45:19

I once had the Saito 45 in a DB sports and Scale 58in Tiger Moth. A love combination for that type of aircraft.

Thank you Chris ~ my sentiments exactlyyes

Thread: Electric Round The Pole
17/07/2017 13:47:57

This takes me back... I was in the ATC around 1974/75 and we used to RTP in the drill hall. Now the hall itself wasn't so big that we'd fly the models so that the wing tips weren't that far away from several of the walls. I remember this goodly night when one of the lads was flying his fw190, to give it try just before another (richer) lad was going to hook up a 4 engine job. Anyway the FW is doing its stuff when the CO opened the hall door (which opened into the hall) and off came the right wing ~ crash and burn... Now our CO flew spits during the war, but this was the only (we think) FW he'd ever brought down wink

Thread: Caption this...!

After the introduction of the New EASA regulations, they looked skyward and remembered the halcyon day when models aircraft were not confined to the ground…

The closer it got, the more it looked like a piano….

Thumbs up on the repairs and it should fly like a treat. Mine came home many time looking a lot worse than thatwink

Thread: Hurricane Help
21/03/2017 11:49:29


I've been looking at Tony's Hurricane plan (the free one from 2010) with a view of having a go myself. So, I have a question for anyone who may have built one. Is the tail wheel fixed, and where is anchored to? I must be getting old, but I can't see how this is done on the plan.

Any help or pointers in the right direction will be very welcomed.
