Thanks Ken i like to hack them out as you can see in my album, i could not bring my F104 with me from Cyprus as i would not be allowed to fly it here, we had NO rules in Cyprus, just common sense

Even the gell coat did not go on to well on the small parts i decided to go ahead with, although except for one they all came off the plugs ok the surface feels rough, nothing i cannot put right, but

Iv contacted the surppliers to see what they have to say, maybe i need a different supplyer, the bit of glassing i did in Cyprus i never had these problems, i have stripped the fencing of the fuselage plug now ill have to clean it up and start again, such is life

Thread: DLE exhaust
28/03/2020 15:10:17

No im not buying a new one, i had a DLE55 in my 1/3 Bucker, and it was spot on, this was last year when i lived in Cyprus, i sold or gave away everything when i came back to the uk including the DLE, this silencer is a new one i had just bought, looks like ill give up on it as i have to buy a new engine anyway, but i did like the DLE, and i flat packed the Bucker and brought the bits back, need an engine for it,when i rebuild it

Having brushed a coat of PA mould release on the parts to be moulded im not happy with the way it went on, never used brushed PA before always sprayed it on, have not got any spray equipment yet, when dry it feels rough, also had a job with the plasterzine used to seal the fence to the plug, would not stick at all, to polished ? or maybe because i polished the fence, ready to mould now BUT,

They are made from 10mm alloy tube for the outer part of the leg and 8mm alloy rod for the inner part, i had to open the tube up a smidgen and and sand down the bar a smidgen to get the opperating freely, ill get some appropriate springs to fit in the tubes. The rest i cut from the 5mm alloy plate, all make it up as i go along
