Thread: Airsail Chipmunk Kit limited re run.
19/07/2014 13:40:09

Nice one Nick,

I love to watch a wing come together. Building wings is my favourite part of modelling.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi all,

I have the RCAF version if this kit (a fellow club member has the RAF version). I hope to start my build later on this year.

Getting lots of inspiration from this thread and might have to clear the building board I think!

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: Don't just stand there, get one up!
07/04/2014 22:58:16

Thanks guys.

Just another build to add to the long list of must do's... indecision

Goldberg Aniversary Cup is next on the list to finish.

Mates tell me I should get an ARF and get it in the air as quickly as I can, otherwise it will just sit on the shelf with all the other engines in my collection... The Black Horse 20cc FW190a looks nice (if a little pricy - Although I can buy a Black Horse FW190a with Air retracts for almost the same as a 50 size Kyosho Fw190 will cost (go figure)).

But I like building...

Cheers,

Hugh

Well, I had a bit of luck on the weekend and WON an OS GT22 petrol engine in a raffle.

Overpowered for this model do you think?

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: Dave Hurrell Be2c Scale project
07/11/2013 10:53:09

Ah, yes... I forgot you were doing an early version... The cut outs in the lower main planes had me confused for a minute there.

Certainly a great deal more progress than my own build of this design.

Cheers.

Hugh

Thread: P-51B - Tony's new design for the 2013 Special Issue

If you are in Aus, can I suggest SC Models in Melbourne. They can take a paper plan and by means of some slight of hand, laser cut you some speccy balsa and or ply bits.

They cut me a batch of ribs for my 1/6 scale BE2c from a CAD file that I prepared for them.

Looking forard to seeing this plan BTW... I was drooling over the FW 190 plan from last year today...

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Danny. Mark VIII Scratch built by Australian Scale Champion David Law. 1/4 Scale. All Balsa and Spruce with Fibre Glass coating.

Can't recall what engine is in it, but it's a Petrol jobbie (I think it's around the 60cc Mark).

Flies like the real one! Very Scale.

I'd say he does still have th mould.

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: What camera are you using?
17/09/2013 13:48:58

I carry two cameras whenever I go to a comp, club day or fly in.

My much loved Nikon D80 with a Tamron 70-200 F2.8 permenantly attached to the front and an old D70 with the D-80's Kit lens (a Nikkor 18-135 F4.8-5.6) on it.

I shoot only on Apperture Priority and use a polariser on the 18-135.

The only quibble I have with either camera is that the Auto focus is not really up to todays standards with what is available in say a D7000 or a D7100.

One day I will justify the outlay and treat myself to a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 100-400 F4.8-5.6... but not quite yet.

Some examples of my stuff can be seen here,

Thread: instrument download

Cool,

Thanks Colin.

Hugh

12/08/2013 03:29:01

I keep on checking the Downloads section for this... A bit worried that it will get forgotten and never be available...

Not that I desperately need these you understand, but the file will be handy to have.

Cheers,

Hugh

So... what's happening boys? Do we have a working plan for a DH60 yet?

Thread: New site appearance

It's a damned site (no pun intended) faster to load I'll give it that.

It was taking ages last week.

Thread: Which circuit direction do you fly the most?
23/04/2013 23:00:10

Our strip is east west, but we get prevailing westerlies.

This dictates right hand circuits, but when the wind drops we always take the opportunity to turn things around.

In reality, you have to be pretty procicient at cross wind take offs and landings to fly at our field.

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: Dave Hurrell Be2c Scale project
01/04/2013 22:13:32

Oooh. Going to be watching this one very closely.

I am building this too. 'Cept I started with the fuselage.

Glad you are going to do an early one... It's very pretty. Mine is going to be "Zebra" - A black and white striped fuse with a late (BE2e) style tail and PC10 wing uppers.

I was going to use an OS70 FL converted to petrol, but I have decided that leccy may be simpler.

I had my wing ribs laser cut by a local mob.

I will be interested to see how you tackle some of the less clear parts of the plan.

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: just how does a "lifting tail" work
01/04/2013 01:30:20

What about in the situation of something like an SE5a or a BE2c with a fully simetrical horizontal stab but an angle of incidence of around 3 to 4 degrees (coupled with a main plane angle of incidence or between 6 and 9 degrees!).

Is that considered a lifting tail?

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: Fokker D8
29/03/2013 05:52:54

I bought the mag yesterday.

You say it came out a little heavier than you expected and that 's why you moved from a 30 to a 40 FS. How heavy was it in the end do you know?

Cheers,

Hugh

27/03/2013 09:25:09

Ok, so my skimming over the article lead me to the wrong idea. Think I'd better actually buy the mag and have a proper read.

Apologies if I implied that you might have published a dud...

How big was it again? I noticed you put a 40 four stroke in it at the end.

I have the beginnings of a 1:6.95 one on the drawing board. My governing factor being the aluminium saucepan that I got from the $2.00 shop being exactly the right profile, but only 158mm in diameter.

I am thinking a foam cored wing.

Cheers,

Hugh

Thread: Does your club allow you to fly alone?
22/03/2013 22:50:12

Our club has no rule as such, but flying alone is actively discouraged as the nearest hospital emergency department to us is an hours drive (ask me how I know).

Cheers,

Hugh
