Thread: Using the K & S Mighty Wire Bender
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

you're as bad as me. I have still got to finish off my 110. Got it all painted in the summer, just got to get it flight ready.

Greetings all, Building season again, thought I had better finish off the 109. Cannot decide whether to top or bottom hinge main flap. I can see that Paul bottomed hinged his. What have others done, also what type hinges Robart or mylar type.

I was hoping to replenish balsa wood stock for the winter building program but it appears that balsa cabin are not attending. I can't even find a list of traders who are attending. Is this intentional or an oversite by the organisers?

Thank you Dennis. Your'e right, very satisfying. I think that most people who have made one feel the same. A lot of it is down to Richard, producing such nice models to build.

Hey Graham

Looking good...you might find the take off ramp a little short though😉

Thats a shame! Perhaps if I use a lot of flap it might just indecision Thank for the link Paul. I received the paint pens yesterday. All I need to get now is the yellow Ochre.

Managed to get some more spraying done today. Just a few little bits of spraying left to do on the fus including dirtying and panel lines.

Couldn't resist putting it together.

Sorry Paul, It was the box just in front of the panel lines. Just realised that is part of the molded cowl. Just having a senior moment.embarrassedembarrassed

Thank you Paul for taking time to show us.

Wow Paul! when I first saw the 1st pictures I didn't think much of the effect, The addition of ochre has made an amazing change to the look of the lines. Looks really good Paul.

Two questions Paul, Yesterday I went looking for white fibre pens - no luck. All I found were white paint pens that you shake to get the pen working. the pen had an ali case. (can't remember the make).

What are the little box shaped pieces on the bottom of the cowl? Is that an addition you made?

By the look of it it won't be long before its ready for a maiden.

Have you painted your pilots yet?

Looking forward to getting the plan. They look a lot stronger than the small foamy jets with pointed noses that always seem to get well bent.

Thanks Paul.

Nice to see this thread come alive again and good evening all..

Have also been busy with other things, built a Wot4 (wood) for a friend, also carried out a major refurb on my workshop. Revisited my 110 on Saturday -sprayed wings and fus.. Just got to add the the dark camouflage pattern . Certainly hope to get a maiden in this season.

Paul - earlier on you described how you put on the panel lines. Any chance of a close up so I can see more clearly the end result. Yours is looking really good! I like it.

Thought I read somewhere that you shouldn’t run up a brushless without a prop on it.

Popped into the LMS today for some Laura Ashley covering but they were freshly out of stock as there had been a run on it just lately. ( I reckon that must be down to Richard W)

They did offer me some tartan paint though but it was the wrong clan,

Spent afternoon spraying underside of the bf110. Very pleased with the result so far. Model starting to come to life.

Along comes my wife "not sure about the colour".

"why ? I replied.

"It's Blue"

"Yes" came my reply,

It's the same colour as the sky"

"I know, It's supposed to be, it's the scale colour".

"But you'll never see it, your always losing things".

I can see her logic. Has anyone got details of a nice Strawberry and yellow bf110.smiley

18/04/2018 21:46:08

I know someone who does.

18/04/2018 20:51:26

I have never had either a twin or retracts before. Do I power the receiver etc via one of the flight batteries ESC of do I power the receiver with a separate lipo and ubec.

or is it best that the retract have their own battery.
