Can anybody help please.

I have been given a kit of a Phoenix Model Pilatus Porter ARF, but there is no instruction manual in the box and I do not know if all the parts are in the box.

Does any one have a manual I could borrow or copy please?

Cheers BOB.

The Brigand was the first aircraft that I worked on when I did my aircraft apprenticeship in 1955, at Marshalls in Cambridge. Great memories.

Hi David.

Go to Aero Craft Ltd, they thave three scale plans for the Mew Gull, 34"", 53"" and 74"".

It looks as though they are for electric power.

Only trouble is they are in the States.

Not the same programme.

Hi Graeme.

No plan in the kit as it was CNC cut.

The wing span is 60 inches , 47 inches long, the engine is a Thunder Tiger 54 four stroke, it is a nice model to fly, it will do the full "B" schedule no problem.

The silver model is a DH 77 "Interceptor", only one aircraft was ever built,

.The wing span is 60 inches, the length is 48 inches, the engine is an RCV 58CD, a powerful engine and sounds lovely, the model is very fast on half throttle.

I did not build this model, I bought it off the for sale items on this forum, the person I bought it from did not produce a plan as such, he did it on odd pieces of paper, and he never kept them so no plans.

Hi Graeme.

It is indeed a DH 71, it was a kit from J B Aviation, unfortunately it is not produced any more.

Here are a couple of pictures.




And here it is with it's stable mate.

The Spitfire flying under the river bridge was in fact the great Ray Hanna.

The bridge was in fact the Winston Bridge in County Durham.

The shot was done for the film 'Piece of Cake', the bridge span is 200ft, and the speed of the aircraft was 200mph, permission was given for one go only.
