Thread: Fairey Gannet
22/10/2020 15:21:12

Well, I can't see me getting around to starting the 81" kit of the Gannet. Anyone interested, send me a P.M. - complete un-started CNC cut kit and 2 massive sheets of plans.

Thread: Veneered foam vs traditional built up construction
13/10/2020 14:06:29

I've used that method Matty - large sheet of glass and created 2' x 4' skins. 2 layers of 50gsm glass, epoxy, then peel ply smoothed on. Comes out great, peel ply side epoxied then straight onto the foam, needs a slight sanding and good for paint.

Cliff's a great chap, also helps run the Scale Soaring website, recommended yes

Thankfully we're only making toy aeroplanes. As said before, correct settings and a well tuned printer creates a MIRROR finish inside moulds after a spray and sand back of pre face.

Fairly far off topic here, but it's just down to correct settings and we'll tuned printers - mirror finishes easily gained with decent prep work before molding too.

A shame to see, but like some others I've got a decent stock of a few year's worth of models. Also having moved into 3d printed moulds for glass fibre fuselages, I'm less stressed than I would have been 3 or 4 years ago. I do hope the situation improves for the UK companies, though.

Comet sold yes

09/09/2020 09:36:04

For sale - DH Comet. Includes 4 servos and switch, and a reliable balance point (more than what I had when I bought it! laugh 

Flies well, but must be kept moving. A real spectacle in the air.

3 piece wing so breaks down well for transport, ABS fuselage, battery hatch for easy access.

£90 collection from South Warwickshire, or can take to next PSS meet if our governmental overlords allow it.

(thanks to Phil Cooke for the photos)

Very nice set of photos that Steve, good job.

Thread: Su-25 Frogfoot for slope
11/08/2020 19:27:15

She looks super Paul, well done. I think a lot of the Bosak designs can be transferred to slope use quite well.

I can only drool at the machines costing that much.... I know they will last for years and still be gorgeous, but I'd never be able to justify the cost sad.


Same here. I'd be buying something scale if I was splashing that much cash. No doubt nice aircraft though.

Thread: F86 build - Boeing chase plane

Hi James, Great progress - the shape is really coming along.

Do you live in Llandudno Junction by any chance?

Thread: PSSA Gliding Events

Yup, gloves felt a bit too "grippy" to me, so I was sanitising before and after each launch yes

Lovely photos as always Chief, you've got a great camera wink

Thread: Phil's F-86 Sabre build thread

All good advice men! The viscosity of the Gurit resin I use is around about single cream, if that helps.

If thick like honey, you could heat it slightly to make it runnier, the corollary of that though is less working time.

Now you have to ask yourself if you trust the plastic kit maker's CAD monkeys!

Must have been some cheesey feet on that surfboard Pete!

Thread: Sabre made in Belgium

I don't think there will be any mistaking your parts Dirk! Are you coming over for the Lleyn meet?

23/06/2020 09:56:00

And that's the bit you're ejecting over the rocks, right?!!

Great work Dirk, lovely paint job as always.
