|Thread: Four motor|
Lovely models, I'll pass the info to my mates - not looking for anything at the mo - I still have five still in boxes, and others bought 2nd hand I haven't prepped yet!
I saw your vid at Glynneath ponds - nice touch with the onboard cam! How do you access those ponds? is it through Cwmgwrach?My mate and I both have Icon A5's to fly, but are now thinking about using the beach at Llanelli, because we cannot find anywhere suitable.
The vid I saw was at Fochriw Pond, above Merthyr
Thanks for that! I'm getting there, although I suspect my build 'wishlist' far outreaches my available time! At the mo, I'm nearing my 'A' Cert (2 wks,hopefully!), although I've been flying for quite a time now. Looking into a seaplane build as my swansong re: multi-motors - a Short Solent four motor -'Aranui', used on the Coral Route back in the 50's. I've actually seen the aircraft in Auckland, when I visited relations last year.
Do you know who it was it with the Short Sunderland up around Merthyr (on youtube, I think)?
I'm in Swansea and Llanelli Clubs at the moment, although I'm thinking about going to Meidrim for an A Cert. workshop in two weeks time.
What are you selling?
That's explained it really well for this non-techno!
Thanks, all, I want to build a twin and a four motor some time in the future, and that'll be a great help plnning for same.
I don't know how to identify those two types! Thanks for your reply.
That's what I wanted, Denis, thank you very much!
Can anyone point me in the direction of a four-motor wiring diagram, please? Ta muchly,
P.S. I already have a two-motor diagram!
|Thread: Foam wing scale 'covering'|
This is a letter I sent to Andrew Newman, the brilliant ossie who made foamcutting bows simple!
Hi, Andrew - Den from Wales here. I have made the bow as per your instructive vids, and it does exactly what it says on the can - brilliant tool! So thanks for your dedication and hours of testing so that we could all get it together without fuss. For my first project using the bow, I want to cut a Stearman Bipe PT 17 wing. As a scale point, the covering shows 'dips' where the ribs/aerofoils are - any ideas how to replicate them, please? Nadolig Llawen (Happy Xmas!), Den
Anyone else have any ideas,please?
Cheers, Happy Xmas!
|Thread: Dummy Cylinders|
Brilliant! Thanks , everyone, Den
Wow! They look nice, Rich! I'll get on that - think my mate has a back copy! Den
P,S, Good luck with the Tomtit, Jim
Thanks everyone - that'll do the trick, I want to try the double string method! Now to find small cardboard tube!
Anyone got any good suggestions for making a dummy rotary engine/cylinders for a scratchbuilt Stearman PT-17, please? Thanks,
|Thread: Tube into Tube|
! Yes, but then you have to order it! Thanks!
|Thread: Hobbyking Cessna twin propellers for sale|
I sourced the twin cessna hobbyking props from:
...and they work fine, although using more power than the originals, I think! Den
|Thread: Tube into Tube|
Can anyone advise me on the measurements of carbon tube into carbon tube, in a foam wing,please?
I know the 'long' tube outer diameter must be the same as the internal diameter of the (fixed) receiver tube in each wing, but when I look at the suppliers for ordering they just give the wall thickness, external diameter, and length?
How do I determine which sizes to order,please?
|Thread: thin aliminium|
Thanks, everyone - I should have made it clearer -3 mm thickness is what I was after. Mick Reeves Models have got back to me in the interim, so I'll be ordering the 'Metalplate' from them. Thanks once again, brilliant support as usual on this site!
Thanks! I've tried to order some with Mick Reeves, but the system is an old one using Outlook, and I cannot access it. I've sent an e-mail asking what next.
Does anyone know where I can buy 0.3" thick aliminium,please?
I've watched Andrew Newman's foamcutting series, and he uses the window flashing that is common in Australia. Our buildingsupplies don't seem to use it, preferring the heavier lead flashing? Thanks,
|Thread: curved shapes in foam with a hotcutter|
|Thanks,Ernie, that's probably the way I'll do it. No need for pix, but thanks for the offer! Den|
I'm scratchbuilding an Me 262, and am fine with how the wings are to be cut using a hotwire.
I'm searching for a reliable method to use a foam block for cutting out the fuselage, especially as its a compound curve shape, as so many fuselages are. Any ideas? Thank you,
