I may have missed it but what do you use to stick down the abs nacelles etc. I have tried r/c modellers glue but it didn't work very well.

I seem to remember using a mixture of meths, water and washing up liquid to clean down models..haven't used it for a good number of years having gone electric

Thanks to D.D and Paul for leading the way. I'm not so far behind you now. I do wonder how the other 19 builders are getting on

Well not a lot doing.... too nice outside.... but got some nice little screws for the nacelle hatches.... you could alway just glue them on but...

Hi Paul How did you get the plastic moulding to join onto the rear of the hatch,as the diameter iof the hatch former is a lot less than the moulding?

Intresting to see how you and Dwain tackle the nacelles.

Evening all

It's been a bit quiet on here lately. I'm procrastinating again. I can't decide what to do next. I have servo boxes installed also hollowed wings for the fitting of retracts.i have yet to cut out the wheel wells. i haven't joined the wings yet as it's easier to work on shorter components and lesson the risk of hanger rash. If I Glue on the nacelles first, will it make it more difficult when joining the wings as they won't rest flat on the bench. Decisions, decisions.

All we need is a village hall, some wine, a field and 22 or so BF110's.

That should be a recipe for a right good Laff I reckon.

D.D.

thumbs up

Hi Paul,

Nice neat solution for the flap. Have been busy today marking up the wing. Glued on l/e strips and started to make a hot wire cutter to cut out flaps etc.

I like your moth, guess it won't be long before it's maiden.

Hi Paul

Thank you. I think that may be a job tomorrow. That will start the wing build.

Making good progress Paul. Are the servo wells pre-cut and hidden under the obechi or do they need cutting out from scratch..

Ps hope its not man flu!

Well..... they are on... glue drying.... very pleased.20170506_091553.jpg

Paul, where are the flap servos?

Are the servo wells precut into the foam and covered by the veneer, or do they need cutting out?

Graham ,

I think you would be better off with the smaller La7 as it works so well in electric form . Might have to deal with that separately at a later date.

Anyone out there that wants a big La7 better put their hand up . The last batch was in 2011 !

Not likely to get a second go on that basis . Dont want any "grizzlers"crying on the phone after the boat (aircraft carrier) has sailed.

Hi Richard, I do have a spare Hacker A60(2600w) is a Hyperion zs4035 (1500w) or failing that an old laser75 cir 1990

11/05/2017 17:22:02

I also would be up for one if it's a bit later in the year. My modelling budget has been hit a bit with the purchase of a WB Spitfire and Fg110.

Would it take electric or do I need to re-invest in ic (Having gone totally electric)

Nobody has shown their rear end yet! Is it just filled in and rounded off behind the tail wheel?

2. What did you do with the edge along the cockpit? It needs rounding off. Did you add an extra doubler on the inside edge so that the outside edge can follow the outside contour? Once I've sorted these 2 problems my fus will have finished the building stage.

11/05/2017 13:03:54

Hi Nigel. Welcome back and trust you will get sorted soon.. I'll be very interested to see how you do your hinges for this project and for gliders.

05/05/2017 20:27:42

I'm a happy chappie, got my back end sorted. All surfaces working, at last.

Dwain, like you I ended up cutting out a lot of t/p sheeting to get the rudders sorted. Have now got control rods in. I can now get on with the rest of the fus installing decking etc. Nice tidy garage you have there.

Back on the thread. Have been a bit busy getting a few gliders ready for our liver day last Saturday.. I have now got a reasonable movement on the rudders. One problem I have is finding a way on the set it up so that I can centre up the rudders. (Give us a clue Richard).
