Thread: RAF Scampton to be sold

New military strategy, its more cost effective for those sending the missiles if all targets are in the same place(airfields). These decisions are normally made by those with the least to lose.

Thread: New Drone Laws from 30/5/2018
30/05/2018 12:49:42

Everyone was aware of forth coming legislation. Wasn't aware gliders or fixed wing will be classified as "DRONES".though they are covered in the Air Navigation Act with restrictions.

Drones are being added due to a small cadre of idiots.

The BBC tends to look for headlines to justify the licence fee, and not always accurately reported, especially things aeronautical.

Whilst each aircraft has its good and bad points, it was the sum of the whole that helped secure victory and the aircrew that flew them.

Thread: Advertising

Any comment be it positive or negative on a service or item can be considered endorsement/advertising to the person who reads it. If a posting becomes blatantly one or the other I think we can rely on the moderators to jump in with both feet and remove it.

Generally any comment we see is considered opinion or good advise. Jon's comments are both of these.

Thread: Retract issue

Hi Andrew

Some times aluminium tends to cut dry and bind the tap. A squirt of WD40 is usually enough to lubricate the thread and prevent snapping the tap.wink

Thread: Guns in Society
25/11/2017 14:47:34

Apparently more fatalities are due to the humble kitchen knife these days. Its not the object that becomes the weapon at the time, its the idiots wielding them that is the problem.

Hi Richard

I am looking for electric retracts for a twin I am building. Been following this thread and noted the good opinion of those you supplied . Could you give the spec /model number/retailer. My twin should come out around auw 5kg or hopefully less.

Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI
08/09/2017 19:08:47

Been reading your posts with interest. Regarding converting the plan to cad, i had a quote from a supplier for a 65" model twin @ £127+ vat asking fellow modellers I was advised this was reasonable for the work involved. Not sure if that gave the rights to the conversion as well. Also advised that the conversion is not always accurate . Decided to go the traditional route and cut the parts myself and ordered the wood instead.
