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.

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.

Thread: Eze-Kote and Koverall

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.

I covered a 4mtr motor glider some 4 years ago with koverall and sealed it with Eze-coat then spray painted and it’s still perfectly taut. No problem with it. It will need a good number of coats to airproof it.

Why don’t you look on the model fixings site on their fittings page. 2mm stainless steel 200mm £1.50.

Hi Paul, Talking with Richard today about your excellent 109. It is looking really good with the weathering.

I have to remake my elevators and rudder as somehow managed to warp them badly after covering. A question about panel lines - once you have laid them down, do you then overspray them them with the dust wash to tone them down and blend them together?.

I certainly hope to give it a try on both the 110 and 109.

That’s unless he changes his mind and brings out the Heinkel which would be very nice Richard.

Paul, your 109 is really looking superb. How did you make the airscoops etc.

When you retract the undercarriage do the fairings come up close to the wing surface? Mine don’t.

Hi Paul, been without internet for a month but back now. 109 is looking really good. Got a bit behind with mine as I have been building a set of F5j glider wings for the beginning of the season. Well don for keeping this thread going.

?????GLIDERS???? oh how the neighbourhood has gone downhill.....cheeky

Hi Paul, Sorry to hear about going downhill, try slope soaring on a better hill. if you have an aversion for gliders  think that therapy may be available. It really will be quite painless.laughcheeky

I know these are a bit more expensive but I think are great value. I bought my Grandson one for his 5th birthday and he loves it. They use good old fashioned NiMi's (2000) Available from hobbyking(£8) and spares are readily available.

Hope this helps. **LINK**

Carry on with the thread, folks - I don't expect any more inane interjections....disgust


thumbs up

Thank you David for and excellent tutorial on wire bending. I’m going to print it out and hang it in the workshop for use later when needed.

02/11/2018 12:27:49

Thank you for this interesting thread. What I have problems with is working out where I should locate the wire so that it’s the right length after bending. Where do you set the registration mark on the bender and how do you determine where to make the wire which will take into account the radius of the bend.  I guess that it also depends on the dia of the wire. (Hope I’ve explained it ok)

Spent ages trying to get the two flaps working properly using the wooden link and screws. A much easier solution I have come up with is to make up a simple z bend on suitable dia wire. (no screws getting in the way etc). will post a picture if required.

Paul, Is this your 1st grandchild? pleased for you. Enjoy.

bf i09 looking good.Did you manage to fly the 110 this summer?

30/10/2018 16:36:07
