Thread: XFJ-2 Fury: F-86E Modified for Carrier Operations

Good choice! I've got Terry Lidstone's old FJ4 - that's why I'm not partaking in the mass build this year. No point having two airframes the same! She just needs a bit of tidying, and will be ready for the event cool I'll be able recreate this old photo of Terry now I have a SeaHawk of my own too.

There's one at Midland Air Museum, just up the road from here - where we went before as a group.

Probably just as bad Mark, if not then worse (yes I did see your Youtube cockpit video!)

The problem is, all of the little models are drawn up as artists impressions, or how a CAD monkey might perceive the full size. Can't beat getting up to the real thing, or good photos / videos of someone else doing so. There must be a preserved Sabre in the UK for a group visit?

Oddly enough I'd just seen that on my Facebook feed just recently. Very clever!

The good lady wife took those piccies, she can steer it well when she wants to.

To be fair, I'd look for a decent walk-around online that shows the section. I wouldn't trust a plastic kit as far as I could chuck it.

Most definitely Phil at Cloud Models. He can do pretty much any length you require yes

Maybe an admin can come along and delete the comment?

Andy - yup, magnets should suffice. I can always 3D print some tanks if anyone was interested? I know shaping balsa into a circular manner can be quite hard from experience!

Look forward to the woodwork starting yes

I like the black one with that really colourful underside - reminds me of the french display Fougas.

Thread: Bob's PSS Nimrod MRA4

I use exactly the same talc trick with WBPU. Done in one coat, but each to there own.

03/09/2019 15:17:37

Crikey Bob, mega upload! Good work. I usually use a sanding sealer for that job too, or even paint on a bit of WBPU.

Most things will go off the slope - my big Tiffie is testament to that. They just need a big blow.

Keep cracking on fella - nearly there yes

Good to see a start Pete. What's the process you use with the carbon paper? Stack the plan / carbon paper / wood and draw over the top?

Thread: Cutting holes in soft balsa
22/08/2019 16:44:18

Ooh, that's a good idea Martian - I've got an old one in the shed that I can sacrifice yes

Yeah it would be nice, but I'd have to do that with a brush and I don't think she's big enough for it really!

I fancy the RAF camo version here :

Or maybe a RNZAF Strikemaster scheme :

No one jumped on any colour schemes yet? I'm still fairly undecided.
