Is there something going on at RCM&E? I still haven't received my September issue and an email to the Subscriptios Dept just results in an automated acknowlegement.

I've always found good quality white wood glue works very well with balsa.
It must be indicative of the age profile on the forum that no one asked, "what's Britfix?"

19/07/2019 11:39:49

All I need now is a, large, tube of Britfix.smiley

Thanks Peter. I did see the dotted line but didn't realise its significance.

17/07/2019 14:53:02

Peter, can you clear my confusion please. The 1/8" Tailplane Platform shown on the plan looks more like 1/4".
I can appreciate the importance of getting the tailplane incidence right but am I missing something?

Welcome to the House of Fun Nu Me 1

You won't go wrong with a 4ch. Super Sixty powered by a four stroke engine. I'm sure you'll enjoy cutting all the 1/4" strip.

Daire, have you considered taking it all to your nearest club for their hands on advice?

I've just finished cutting out the, thirty nine, wing ribs for Peter Miller's RF4. The kit is nearly complete now so that has to be good news for me.

Dare I ask - a twin using these units - Meteor, Canberra, Me262, Ar234 .... am I dreaming....

A10 Warthog more like, or if you are into civil stuff, a Learjet?

MMmmmmm, a Learjet!!

I've already ordered a Fan Unit in anticipation of the Hunter or Provost plan.
I have fond memories of my Airfix 1/72 Provost. It would be nice to have a flying model.

You're absolutely right! I'll have a go at it as soon as I run out of cheese nerd !!! Won't take long...

I've got an 8x6 prop installed, thus I'll keep the power on the conservative side.


If I can just get my squeak in; please let us know how it turns out.

Just realised that while I had put the model on the "New Models thread I haven't put it here.

Well I can tell you that the model flies like a dream, IT is rock solid in flight so one can concntrate of actual positioning rather than flyimg.

Now there's a surprise!!!

Wasn't there an article in the mag a few years ago which described how to build your own and used the Clinometer App? I built one and it works very well. Looks very similar to the one in the photo.

There are a few threads on here about DIY whistles. Just put whistle into the search box.

Thread: Building my new Fournier RF-4

While on a trip to the attic a few weeks ago I was almost buried by a sudden avalanche of past issues of the mag.
When I surfaced the issue on top was July 2011 containing this plan and build article. Although I like Fourniers almost as much as Druine Turbulents, it must be a French thing, I had completly forgotten about it and I took its reappearance as a message from the Aeromodelling Gods. I now have such an urge to build this one that it may push Peggy Sue 2, on which progress is slow anyway due to essential repairs on other models, onto to back burner. I may even run the two builds in parallel. If I do decide to go ahead with the build I think I'll go for the SLEC CNC pack as a quicker option than cutting out all those wing ribs. Before anyone asks, yes I've also got the August issue with the corrected plan.
