|Thread: Great Giveaways|
Who remembers this giveaway?
Needless to say I'm a lifelong member of the "That might come in handy someday society"
|Thread: Web Cam?|
Ours is just about to be installed.
|Thread: My RF4|
There's not much wrong with your eyesight Peter! I should have taken the picture from the other end.
Theres quite a bit of work in these wings but I suppose I'll have to build another one now!
|Thread: A different kind of build.|
Go for it!!
|Thread: My RF4|
It probbably would have been easier if I had given the LE a basic shaping before attaching it but some brain cells must have had a day off so I didn't think of it.
Now on to the spar webs.
The dreaded leading edge is at last in place and the lower sheet attached.
Henry Ford is reputed to have said that lazy people made the best employees because they would always find the quickest and easiest way to do thing!
|Thread: Any clock experts here?|
Geoff, you'll find the clock experts and lots of advice in the clock section here:
|Thread: My RF4|
Easy for you to say Peter!
If you have all the bits then you're half way there John. Start building and you might be flying before me. I warned you that mine could be a slow build.
+1 for 4-Max.
Thanks for that Peter. However my post was misleading, what I meant was the 1/8th. LE, not the capstrip.
Coincidently, "Pilot" magazine have been running a series of articles about the restoration of a full size RF4 and what's very noticeable is the resemblence that the stripped airframe has to the photos in your build thread. The writer has problems with iron on covering that will be familiar to most modellers! He also flys a Turbulent so his credentials are good.
Warning, this will not be a quick build so don't expect daily updates! In fact I've been just a bit under the weather recently and have hardly set foot in the workshop for nearly three weeks. Hopefully things will start moving forwards now, albeit slowly.
This is the set of parts prepared some time ago.
The fuz assembled. The top decking put up a bit of a fight but we got there in the end.
Although I know a four-stroke would sound terrific I'm going the electric route.
Since this picture was taken I've installed all the ribs and the top spar.
I suspect that shaping the LE cap strip after its been installed may be a bit of a challenge.
|Thread: Boddo's Biggles Biplane|
I still have my hardback copy "somewhere". I read it so often I almost knew it off by heart.
|Thread: What are your three favourite war movies?|
|Thread: Solar Film Iron|
kc just beat me to it. I've always used an ordinary domestic iron. Just protect the sole with a thin cloth to prevent Solarfilm colour being transferred to her best dress, blouse etc. Don't ask how I know this!
|Thread: The thread for your subscriber questions and queries **please do not start a new thread**|
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.
|Thread: AND finally.....the 'Mini Jet' TSR2|
What happened to the Learjet that was mentioned in the other thread?
|Thread: Building my new Fournier RF-4|
I've always found good quality white wood glue works very well with balsa.
All I need now is a, large, tube of Britfix.
