imga0112.jpg

This time I have used vinyl instead of trying to film over film,something I have never got the hang of blusha bit of soapy water makes it so much easier ! yes

Next thing was to replace the stub axles

imga0102.jpg

this is a GP made axle ,it's made in two parts :i.e. a bolt with a rod rammed into it,but it looks a bit untidy with the nut &bolt look

imga0103.jpg

made from a 6 mm coach bolt

imga0111.jpg

much better with split pin and washer

Barnstormer revisited

imga0922.jpg

So,having "finished" building Barnstormer RAF edition it was duly flown to great adulation and applause.....................

Errr,no,that did't happen,it got stuck up in the loft with all my other planes and R/C stuff as a result of losing our flying site and not being able too find an alternative site/club.

Well five years later,and with the possibility of going part time at work, I decided it was time to finish off some old projects,so far that has been the Bi-fly,Fair Legionaire and Wik super tiger (almost!).When the Barnstormer was dug out of the eaves it resembled a prune more than a sleek interceptor !sad

There was also a number of other things that I was less than happy with that I felt I could have done better.

imga0043.jpg

the blue covering had bubbled badly and the rudder as well

stringers to flexible adding to covering issues

Thread: MDS 148 piston
14/04/2019 12:55:06

John,I think the issues with MDS carbs are legendary,so my one now sports an OPS slide carb with accelerator pump.

ED,sorry to say the Merco case is for a 61sad,as for the MDS if all else fails,most likely could make one fore you ?

jeff i take it you are an engineer,that test stand looks the dogs pal,excellent, i see your into your bikes too,so i suppose that comes in handy when it comes to engines,well done,good job.

Well sort of,I'm a welder/fabricator by trade but after 40 years in the industry you pickup other skills along the way like milling /turning ,but I'm no expert,just an enthusiastic amateur !

Yes that's a radial mount for larger engines and I will be looking into a fixed tacho.

Just finished off a OPS 40 SLA that a very generous member on this forum gave me along with a Meteor 40 for

restoration.

As it came out the box

Bowman's did take over the Olympic Sportsman,nice looking plane.

one for the glider*st out there

I think that people that are 'new' to the hobby,as in the last 15-20 years,would be surprised at the number of kits that were available from small mfg and shops in this country.
