I'd double check it with an online calculator like this : **LINK**

It's never let me down yet. I'd put static margin at 9%.

I'm calling the scale police, and they're going to lock you up.

By using the stretch function in AutoCAD of course!

Stretched you say?! surprise

How did you get the camo to line up on that stretched wing then? cooldevil

Thanks both, great video too! Painted in B&Q Valspar cheapo paint, which turned out quite nice with a layer of Halfords satin lacquer from a rattle can on top.

PSS F105 Thunderchief, ready for the off.20200424_180855.jpg





Here she is with her PSS Century fighter series sisters. One still to finish, nearly there though!


Thread: Phil's F-86 Sabre build thread
26/04/2020 20:15:53

We both had the same kit for a sixth scale A10, mine took me 6 months to build and finish - Phil's will be 10 years old before it gets a launch laugh

26/04/2020 19:04:26

Good grief, there's more work in that than your fuselage!

The A10 looks on in disgust.

I think from Matt's experiences, balsa can still end up lighter than 3d printed parts in all honesty. It suits me as I can design quickly once, then print multiple items whilst doing other building (or God forbid, house!) jobs. Agreed that the moulded tanks looks fantastic too yes

23/04/2020 23:28:21

3D print it - they won't weigh more than 20 gr :D

Not far off at all now Rob, great work. That scheme is really going to "ping" in the sunlight - good choice!

Impressive work Phil.

We might have to get you to do the Mig15 beta build!

Please don't - I'd like to see him actually finish his A10 before he ends up in an old folk's home.

That's all looking rather neat and tidy Andy, great work. Keep it up!

It looks like it's 35meg too, so right up your street!

No wiggly rudder?! no We must convert your TX to single stick sometime soon Phil.

Looking great that, Harry. Great weather for some garden based carving!

Thread: Show Us Your 3D Prints
03/04/2020 14:44:53

Furlough has had its advantages - all 3 printers here have been flat out for me and customers.

1/4 scale seats and switch panels for a CT-114


Lots of ordnance for my Vietnam veteran :


FRSky rx and aerial mounts :


A whole bunch of 10th scale Spitfire parts - exhaust stubs, control columns, radios, gun sights, throttle quadrants, rear view mirrors.


Thread: Chrome covering

Crikey, I've never seen Phil's work only being classed as "not bad"!! Excellent finishes from an aeromodelling artist, and as close to the real thing as I've ever seen, short of "flite metal". Thanks for sharing them Al, they are outstanding, and far above and beyond what a plastic film could manage yes

Thread: Sabre made in Belgium
28/03/2020 14:57:04

A good solution but... you're just going to drop a small weight off the back onto the slope somewhere? Sounds a bit risky (not to mention if it's lead...)

Thread: Pete's Cavallino Rampante Italian Aerobatic Team Sabre
21/03/2020 20:21:23

Covering looking great Pete, yes I think we're all getting some excellent workshop time in at the moment. I'm also glad the pilot and seat arrived safe and sound, and that I used the correct honorific angel   I'm sure you've noticed the heads have balls in the neck - this should allow you to get whichever angle you deem appropriate - just sand the plastic back to the required angle.  Cyano is fine for gluing these parts.
