Nice exhaust stacks!

Glynn, I think its always good to carry a little of your DNA on board. Its a permanent reminder of the blood, sweat and consumption of Haribo's that you put into the build.

Mine is all primed and ready to be sprayed when I can decide what scheme to use.

Hi Stuart,

I had the same problem about mounting on the ceiling. In the instructions it states that you can place it on a table or on the floor. mine is on a table near the workbench. I hope that this helps.

When sanding I use a dust mask as advised from here. www.dustmasksdirect.co.uk  

I phoned them and the guy asked me what materials, solvents,resins, wood etc I use. and advised accordingly.

Ended up with a dust filter plus a particulate add on filter (PR2) for toxic dust, fumes etc  when I'm epoxy laminating etc. Really helpful, well worth a look.

I would recommend anyone who creates balsa dust etc to protect their airways.

Hope that this is useful

Hi,

two weeks ago I invested in one of these - https://www.toolsandtimber.co.uk/tools/dust-extraction/workshop-air-filtration as I am now under the hospital for inflamed throat caused by workshop dust.

The difference is amazing. I think the one I bought is more powerful than the jet 500., which means I keep it on all the time when in the workshop on the 1st setting. the noise is acceptable.

Is that the TN free plan version? It's the next one on my list after the Jet provost is finished.

Would like to know how you get the black so neat around the curves of the nose without creases in.

Evening all,

I have this foam veneered part for the 109 part. I am not sure how it is used.

Has anyone got a picture of it installed on the underside.img_6774.jpeg

Thanks

I’m interested in your build. Good to see a glider in the make.

Hi Paul, what Corsair kit are you building? Shame there no pictures as I am always keen to see your builds.

Looks great Paul! Looking forward to seeing a longer flight. I expect Richard needed a stiff Haribo or two after the flight. Did you have a gyro on board?

Thanks Paul. Have you flown yours?. Not sure whether you can see the panelling details. I did what you suggested on the 109 thread - using white hi lighter and yellowing the panel edges.Really pleased with the result. I will get some better pictures on here.

Thought I would reopen this thread. Any news about all the other replicas 110 that were being build. Mine is almost ready for a maiden before finishing off other scale details.

I guess that a large percentage of BMFA members are pensioners pursuing our hobby in retirement. This is just another tax foisted on upon us by the establishment.What could they do if we all refused to pay?

Hi Paul, I have been applying the weathering technique to the 110. I will get some photos soon. Going back to the 109 were the wing flaps centre or bottomed hinged. If they are centred I guess you just gently round off the bottom of the l/e.

14/03/2019 14:48:53

Paul,

How are you? I have been studying all your pictures trying to see how you hinged the flaps that are attached to the wing. The flap that's on the wing I assume is still attached by conventional hinges that are covered over.

I also recently bought a Silhouette Studio.I didn't go for the software upgrade. I bought Easy Cut Studio. very happy with it.

Hi Thomas, The D box is sheeted and then it’s all open structure. The fuz is all open structure(all 5 ft of it.) I can post some pictures if you want. A couple of points to be aware of

Be careful when shrinking as it can warp your structure if you have the iron is too hot.

I found it difficult to get a frayed free edge.

To to stick it down I used balsaloc/covergrip.

I think poly-c is the same as eze-cote but a lot cheaper.
