IMHO and without a doubt, the very best is the ARES Gamma 370 foamy! It is a great flyer and tough as nails. Batteries Last and are among the inexpensive. The plane can be upgraded from "Rudder only" to the addition of Ailerons by purchasing a new wing and stronger motor! My grand son and Grand Daughter both loved to fly it!

Hi Derek,

Thanks for the info. I will check them out next week! Google said " Methylated Sprits" is ... a mixture of ethyl alcohol (95%) and methyl alcohol (%5). The methyl is added to keep people from drinking it. Methyl is poison !!!!!

Where do you get lithoplate? What does it cost? Though I am in US I would think the sources would be the same type as in UK.

I'm glad it's picture and not a warp! Sorry for the alarm!

In the pictures, there appears to be a warp in the wing. It may be the pictures but it is in each picture!

I would have to have 2 a Stringalong RM plan of years ago great flyer (I've had 3 of them) and an own design Ruperts Dad which was a freebie in another mag some years ago, I'm currently building an updated version.

For some reason I thought were looking for the Stringalong Plane so since I found it I thought I would pass it on.

My favorite all time model is the 1/2A Civy Boy FF.

Thread: #11 x-acto blades
19/03/2014 20:14:05

When I started building models I used only Razor Blades, Single Edge, then I tried xacto blades and holders but they they kept unscrewing so back to Razor Blades. Then I discovered scalpel blades and now I'm happy!

Hi Victor,

Man ... Sorry about the Heating system ... I use the Master Air Screw and was surprised to see both how easy it worked and how well the strips turned out!

I am an retired Engineer. Have considered building mini rip saw but decided there was no real need for one. What I want, but the coins are not there for, is a CAMaster I CNC Router!

Glad all worked out for you!


15/03/2014 16:45:01

Victor ... How did things turn out? What did you decide to do?

Thread: Proxxon Table Saw FET

Take a look at this saw ... I have not clue what it would cost over there but here in the end it would only cost a bit more than the Proxxon.


Thread: Thickness Sander
02/03/2014 22:03:44

Stevo - I would suggest you visit a wood working tool shop and look at their sanders. As an example:

This small machine is some thing you could look at for info on how it is built!

There was a good article in one of the wood working magazines a while back that also had the plans for building a drum sander! Unfortunately, I cannot find the article. The drum to which the sand paper was attached was rotating below the work piece and you would just push the work piece across an exposed area of the sanding drum. Very simple! Very much like a Joiner except no blades just sand paper!

There is a small tool company that has a thickness sander named Micro-Mark. Their URL is:

Here is the sander:,8599.html

I have no real knowledge about this product so I cannot comment on it.
