Thread: Repair of a Hanger 9 P-51 Mustang.
16/09/2019 21:34:07

Ok,will do. As for engine, I have a brand new RCGF 20cc petrol, a OS 120FS pump, 2 off and a few SC 120 four strokes, Which one? Probably go for the 4 stroke, and the OS pumper at that. Petrol is ok, but still sounds like a strimmer!

16/09/2019 21:05:42

Is it worth me continuing the thread? If ok, then will keep posting the process. Not done much, just put the new blocks and u/c mains in, ready for fitting out.

If no interest,then will leave the thread. let me know if anyone one wants to see.

I'd look at Swap meets I bought one a while back for £5 including a silencer a while back. Shop around.

Thread: Ashbourne 2019
12/09/2019 21:01:09

If Elvington iis not going ahead, or if the Ashbourne event gets moved, I will go. Just can't be in two places at once!

As for Oatckes - well known that I don't like them... Anything soggy, or sticky puts me off. Last year I "won" one and gave it to Chris.

Thread: OS 40 four stroke, inverted?...
06/09/2019 21:17:39

Four stroked run even better inverted. Many models I have with inverted run better than the right way up.

Thread: Shortage of 35% (100cc) aerobatic kits in the U.K.
03/09/2019 21:43:54

There seems a shortage of all kits at the moment. Going round at the shows, there is nothing new and most models are out of stock.

Just to add that Dave from Inwood models built a smaller trailer to transport kits to the shows, as he said that it is no point using the large trailer when he had trouble getting kits to fill it(empty spaces) and as a result the smaller one you've probably seen is the sign of the times...

Will be electric and scale oleos, which I've got a stock of different sizes.

You're right, that's what I noticed last night. the u/c blocks are only held on at two ribs, and ripped part of the spar out. Now a new sub spar added and butressed over it, and another false spar on the other side of the capping strips. Tonight add new hardwood blocks, a new false l/e rib and more triangle stock to take the high stress areas, with some glass fiber cloth to spread the load.

Where its at now:

dscf5095.jpgA few weeks ago, I saw this for sale at Winterton Model Show. Was damaged when the legs got ripped out. Easy fix, the fuselage is perfect - no damage, and all the damage is on the underside of the wings - a few puncture holes and need to remake the hardwood u/c support bearers. No problem. Just get the loose bits glued in and a few repairs for now.

Starting to repair a H9 P-51 Mustang I bought for £25 a few weeks ago. Is brand new, the first flight ended up with the u/c being ripped off and the person selling it. It was missing the blue spinner, but a few years ago bought a Cowl, Spinner and top deck canopy for £2. So in the end, it is a viable project and one of my favourite aircraft.

Will keep doing a repair/flight blog.

Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.
01/09/2019 15:14:35

Put the gear in a Yak 54 I bought at the Nats for £5. Bit tatty, but good enough for a hack, and had loads of spare servos, motor and esc to use up, might as well. Tactic 6ch radio.

Thread: Well this could get interesting
01/09/2019 12:44:09

The page locked up and didn't know what it did. Done that before, I got a page off-live as after submtting. Think it was this site, as I was looking at Youtube "porn" videos - new eflite toys!

There are several ways to protest at the new Drone Law, and this isn't it!disgust

Bet none of them will register and probably make the bill more "urgent" and to get these pesky "drone operators" back inside in front of the X-box and open to influence from media sources and not take up a productive hobby such as ours...

Thread: Ashbourne Scale Day
01/09/2019 11:21:14

I thought that it would be the first weekend of Oct, due to Elvington. Also, Ian, Chris are in the club and part of the Dawn Patrol, and Ashbourne would come first priority for them.

Thread: OS 40 FP Mixture problem
29/08/2019 20:24:04

I have loads of 10FP's to 60FP's. Bought a 40 and 35FP last weekend for £5 each. they are brilliant engines, powerful enough for most models and good runners, and never seem to wear out.

Thread: Acro Wot Alternative

Soon it will be the Swap Meet season, maybe find one there. There were a couple of Wots Wot kit built models at last weeks' Nats, maybe find one?

Thread: Brian Winch
26/08/2019 21:48:59

Oh, no, Brian was always one of my favourite columns due to his in depth knowledge of engines and all thing engineering.

He did mention that he lost his wife and had started to do his daily tasks that his wife did - including using paper plates to save washing and the brainwave to use them as gaskets for engines.

My favourite story is when a Laker model with a OS120 FS was lost in the lake, then found much later when the lake drained in a draught - Brian got the engine running again, after replacing parts an the funny bit when he described it like Sir Lancelot pulling the sword out of the stone - in this case Sir Lancelot holding the engine high after releasing it from the lake bed!

R..I.P. Brian

Couple of new models. Hanger 9 Hellcat and unknown make of P-39. The P-39 has all gear to fly. OS 48 Surpass and Evolution 61 in the Hellcat. Seemed the P39 cowl is a different colour Looks like the film has faded, as it's matched under the wing seat and cowl.
