Thread: What Traders are still offering Mail Order? Services?
03/04/2020 21:44:38

Question for Barrie, Are you Roy´s lad? I bought my first model from him when he was in Bury and the Lanc was hanging in the workshop.

Thread: Has Your Club Made Any Decisions Regarding The Coronavirus?
31/03/2020 15:42:22

Erf, I know you are on the Fylde, Do you (when you can) fly near to the army camp? Are you still bothered by the occasional low(very)Cherokee?

Thread: Home viewing - Avaition Treats from 20th March 2020 onwards

Re the 262, Who remembers the unforgettable sight of the 1/2 size 262 going in at Woodvale several years ago due to a bird strike?

Thread: Netflix scam
18/03/2020 23:06:53

For those of you who read the Daily Mail, read the personal finance page. There are a number of these scams listed.

Thread: Insanity seems to be setting in
15/03/2020 16:47:07

I´m not that much different to Peter and Erf in age and find my way blocked by younger drivers. The difference is that here in Portugal the motorways are nearly empty due to toll charges.

Peter, They haven´t enough police to catch real crims, So you are pretty safe even if as they say those not self isolating could be arrested.

Thread: Thinning Araldite
13/03/2020 11:53:25

Warming it will thin it slightly BUT do not over heat as that will ruin its properties.

Thread: Probable scam?
26/02/2020 12:46:48

David, the method you describe is called "spoofing" and is still in common use.

24/02/2020 14:06:05

Only this last week we have had emails from HMRC and TV licensing saying they had not been able to take the latest payment. Having lived in Portugal for three years now we do not have a TV license and certainly do not pay tax. The HMRC get bounced to Phishing@hmrc and the other to the c#$p bin.

Thread: Threadlocked.
21/02/2020 15:31:09

Hopefully it will be 242 (blue) and should move with only a bit of shock.

Thread: Modes 1 or 2
13/02/2020 23:23:49

I know this is slightly off track, But, I was taught on mode 1 as that was the primary mode in the club. I have also flown on mode 2 without problem. As I am primarily left handed is this why?. Technically I am ambidextrous as i can use either hand.

Thread: I guess there is no problem
05/02/2020 16:04:34

We appear to have two threads running on the same theme. Check the thread on" Chinese suppliers" and the note from government.

Thread: On a lighter note
02/02/2020 15:58:52

Over many years of service work around the UK and Europe I have covered many thousands of miles in Astra estates, both petrol and Diesel and not had many problems. I have also owned two Astras myself with no problems.

Thread: Good Service - Flying Tech. Bad Service - Banggood.
02/02/2020 15:55:29

This is slightly off track But, I have ordered things from UK via Amazon to be delivered to Portugal, and they have been all round Europe, attempted delivery in Lisbon,Faro, and gone back to UK. I live on the Algarve and have items delivered no problem most of the time.

Thread: On a lighter note
31/01/2020 14:11:39

I had an Astra estate, great for carrying models. I could get some in assembled. Went to Primrose Valley with wife, two kids, wheel chair and three models.

Thread: engine refurb
24/01/2020 11:04:18

This topic has cropped up before, Arial washing powder seems to be the best, others turn the surface to a dark grey.

Thread: Cheaper or more expensive.
18/01/2020 20:58:31

No need to blame brexit. Look back to when we went decimal, all prices went up to the nearest full coin or even more.

Thread: Trendsetters and Iconic Models over the Years?
16/01/2020 23:43:07

Robin, what about the "mascot"

Thread: Lost mojo
01/01/2020 02:01:30

Flyboy, I know exactly what you are going through. I lost my wife just before christmas a few years ago and she understood what model flying meant to me. I persevered and became the club chairman and chief instructor.

Thread: Merry Christmas
25/12/2019 11:31:14

And a very merry (if you know madrona you know what i mean)Christmas and a happy new year from Portugal.
