Thread: Paint bleed issues
09/07/2019 18:31:31

Hello Alan.

The toothpaste and Dremel soft brush is probably the best way to go

As Denis says prevention going forward. I’ve personally found Tamiya tape to be spot on and for jobs like canopy window I would use Tamiya’s masking sheet”. I did my Vulcan cowl this way... great stuffyes.

Hello Trevor,

I have had that happen to me on occasion when uploading from iPhone or iPad. What I did was got into the iPad, select photos and then edit.

you can then rotate the photo 180 degrees and save. Then load into your rcme album as usual.  It should then appear correct way up

What terrible news.

I never met Dave but he certainly made a fantastic and positive contribution to the hobby and this forum.

My deepest condolences.

Thread: Uploading pics from album using ipad
02/01/2019 17:51:25

I upload from iPad exactly as Ron has shown above without issue.


If your iPad is an older generation with out of date IOS it may not allow the direct upload option. I couldn’t do it with my original iPad 1 but my later iPad Pro with IOS fully up to date will allow it.

What version iPad do you have FB? And what is your IOS version you currently have installed ?

I use NEW 50Cal ammo boxes from Ebay (link below). Not worth getting used old rusty ones in my opinion. Also, I thought the whole point was to keep the rubber seal in place to stop the gasses escaping in case of a problem or a battery going pop or in fact more oxygen getting in if they try and burn.


Hi Andy/pat. They both look great. I’m ordering one as well

I had gone along with the venting idea but now you’ve got me wondering dont know Should we vent them or not ????

15/11/2018 23:26:31

Hello pat,

I too am looking for an ammo box, ken found a suppler but I can’t find his link......

Ian, Just for insulation from the metal box... help safeguard the batteries against shorts

Mine is to plan and I’m sure Greg said he’s followed the plan exactly...on my photo I think the image is squashed/distorted

Here’s another taken after planking the nose img_2400.jpg

Mines waiting for it’s white coat (just done the tail as a tester)... I’m probably going to have to wait till the spring to get back into my spray booth (aka the back garden )sad

I don't think we need two threads on what many see as an utterly tedious topic of very little relevance to model aeroplanes! wink 2


That is why it is in the chat section is it not?

Was just thinking the same myself .... hardly worth that comment. is it known many find it tedious ?

Thread: Plan protection

Hello Fly Boy,

I'm the same as Chris, the plastic wrapping that Florists use to wrap bouquets etc. It lies lovely and flat and nowt sticks to it laugh

My local florists usually gives me a load for a notional couple of quid.

Our local news station covered the turbine test back in 2016. The engine was donated by the RAF.

Thanks for posting ken

I’ve been watching the restoration with great interest since bluebird was first recovered in 2001

Well done to all the people involved. A fantastic achievement

Very impressed with Callie, fast response for my 78 inch Nijhuis Vulcan.

Got the choice of traditional colour roundels or the “washed out “ anti flash version. Plus all the other graphics was $27 including delivery to uk
