|Thread: Another one for this crowded little world|
Congratulations Pete. You've got to go a bit to catch me up though. 7 Grandchildren and we've just been presented, 2 weeks ago, with Great Grand daughter number 4. Christmas is expensive in this house.
Geoff....poor and getting poorer dept.
|Thread: 1st Crash|
My favourite Kamco Kadet with foam wings and ailerons. Went in from 300 ft 'cos I had rushed things and not secured the battery pack which became unplugged. Very impressive.
|Thread: What do you do with old RCM&E magazines|
Hiya Ken my friend. What's this 'blue bin' business, don't tell me you get bins oop north to put your recycle paper and mags in? We just get scruffy blue bags down yer.
Geoff ...................deprived dept.
|Thread: ML407 Spitfire LF MkIXe|
Many thanks Ian, a very enjoyable and interesting insight into the history of this particular Spitfire.
Geoff........Green Eyed and Jealous Dept.
|Thread: Tony Nijhuis 45" spitfire build (first for donkys years!)|
Hiya Simon, very informative build and nicely done. Bit off thread here and one for the Mods, for the first time for months part of this thread disappears behind the adverts again.
Geoff .....moan dept.
|Thread: Model Retrieval - Brainstorming Exercise|
Hiya all. using the treble hooks could cause a problem by snagging on rocks/bushes. I think the loop idea best.
Geoff......model fishing dept..
|Thread: Which glue for wing joining?|
Hiya Chris, actually it's only got one dihedral brace between the two main spars. Do you think it would be beneficial to put another one in behind the leading edge?
Many thanks for this my friends. The wings are built up and are very light. I think I'll go with the aliphatic resin and keep fingers crossed.
Geoff.......end of sticky problem dept.
Hiya all, I've now got to the point of joining the wing halves together for my Micro Telemaster. Unusually for me both sides line up perfectly without having to fiddle. I have in my collection the following adhesives:- CA, Aliphatic Resin, PVA and 5min Epoxy. In your considered opinion which would be the best for me to use?
Geoff............sticky problem dept.
|Thread: Vintage Roll Call for Greenacres|
Hiya Chris, already started sorting my wardrobe out. I have found a 'fair isle' jumper last used in a WW2 production I was in.
Geoff............ reminiscing dept
Hiya all, all these lovely old timers, models that is, Greenacres is gonna be great this year.
Be there or be square.
Geoff..........digging up old sayings dept.
|Thread: Covering film trimmer|
Hiya Pete, yes mate tried it. Now I don't know if it was me but it worked fine until it seemed to hit a hard spot and didn't cut but tore the Solafilm so I ditched it and used my scalpel.
|Thread: Micro Telemaster Build|
Hiya Olly, put it down to my age mate. Cheers my friend,
Geoff ........... shaky hand dept
Hiya all. just a couple of pictures on the progress of the Micro Telemaster. This the first time doing this so I am prepared to be 'modded' Question , do the wheels look ok? only I fly from a rough field and I can't get the hang of hand launching 'cos I get flustered.

|Thread: Covering advice|
Hiya all, thanks for this information gentlemen, it is much appreciated. Yes the stabiliser is of open construction, made using 1/8sq, hence the fragility. 1/3 of the leading edge has gone already in sanding to l/e shape. In explanation, I have no modelling budget and will have to go with what I got, so I have doubled up on the leading edge by inserting pieces behind the original between the cross members. Should this not work I will change the stabiliser to a solid unit.
Geoff...............Belt tightening dept.
Hiya all. I am building a Micro Telemaster. I can foresee a problem when it comes to covering it. I suffer badly with COPD so doping is out 'cos the fumes will stop me. I have just built the stabiliser and it is very, very fragile and I think ordinary Solafilm will crush it when shrunk. I think the wings and fuselage will be ok. Can any one advise me on alternate methods which will suit this application.
Geoff........... decrepit dept.
|Thread: Mouse Hunt|
Just to keep you posted in this 'thrilling' topic. Last nights capture was the 17th. Persistent little perishers aren't they.
Geoff.......... the demon Hornbeam Hamster Catcher.
|Thread: New Glue|
Hiya Bob, I suffer with COPD big time but I can honestly say that the fumes do not affect me, I can't even smell them. I do work in a very large cold attic and I wonder if this disperses the fumes more quickly.
Geoff..............something or other dept.
Hiya Lee, I'll have a go at our Poundland shop, they've only just opened so they might be acceptable to a request. Happy New Year mate.
