|Thread: Mike Trew ASW 20 (Traplet)|
|If someone can find me an an artf ASW 20 that doesn't cost 500 quid then I'm all ears...|
Check out this build. It's going to be my bible for this build.Â
My dad flew a real ASW20 many years ago, so I've been keen on one for a while. Took me ages to find a model with a sensible wing loading. The Hangar 9 one is loaded like a warbird!
|My wife bought me the plan and canopy at Christmasnd I got the laser cut parts a while ago and then forgot about it. I'd dearly love a moulded ASW20, but the budget doesn't allow for that. Here's my progress after a few days...|
|Thread: VQ Hawker Hurricane rework|
I sold the smaller one, as that tipstall seemed to happen on every flight on take off.
|Thread: Bristol sloping|
|Oh and are either of them national trust? Just thinking that if not I can use a prop if the lift is light.|
|Realised I've probably picked the wrong weekend for advice with Nationals being on! Thinking of heading to either Sands Point or Maes Knoll. Anyone about? Here until Wednesday.|
|Thread: Valenta models, Czech Republic - UK suppliers|
Not UK, but http://www.topmodel.frÂ sellÂ their kits. I've bought stuff from them before and been happy. You'll have the same consumer rights as here.

|Thread: Danny's "poor mans Spitty"|
|Slightly off topic, but what was the tube in the soundtrack, Danny? It's bugging me as I have a couple of ideas who it might be.|
|Thread: Bristol sloping|
|Hello all. I'm on holiday in Bristol for the week and I've had a look on slopehunter and seen a few sites. I've brought a couple of models and wondered whether anyone would be up for meeting a new face to show them the local slope? I often find locating local sites requires a guide!|
|Thread: Property damage|
|Martin, I'm judging the landlady for trying to charge the tenants for something that happens when someone's ill!|
|Thread: Nijhuis FW190 CoG|
|Thanks chaps. I'll break out the church roof and get measuring in the morning!|
I've emailed about a couple of things related to his kits over the years and never had a reply. Great kits, but not much in the way of post sales support, in my experience.
|Hello all, I've done a repair and it's a touch tail heavy now, but can't for the life of me find the plan. Can anyone help with where the balance point is?|
|Thread: So, What would you buy with your lottery win?|
|I'd buy my own field with a hard runway|
|Thread: In praise of the moderators|
|I agree that their illiberal approach to language can be a bit OTT (I've been ticked off for using a word that's mentioned in law books) but the flipside is Facebook groups, where any idiot can post whatever they like...|

|I don't post too often, but often read the forum. Having spent a fair amount of time on Facebook groups and other forums I'm definitely now a cheerleader for the more civilised tone on here. That's all I really wanted to say. Nice one mods!|
|Thread: Man on the moon. Really?|
|In my experience the mind of the conspiracy theorist is incredibly flexible and can perform all sorts of somersaults to keep their belief system going. Very sad.|
|I beer between getting cross with conspiracy theorists and feeling sorry for the people who don't have the imagination to believe humankind could achieve our greatest feat.|
|Thread: What is this called?|
|Yeah, it would, but I don't have a vice at the moment. I'm also concerned it might weaken it too much, as it's only Aluminium|
