I have never had either a twin or retracts before. Do I power the receiver etc via one of the flight batteries ESC of do I power the receiver with a separate lipo and ubec.

or is it best that the retract have their own battery.

Graham check back a tad to see how DD did his. You don't want to know how I did mine.... unless you know what a low forward voltage drop schottky diode is and how to choose the right one and connect up a couple...😉

The retracts and receiver on my Ju 88 simply get powered through the receiver . The red lead on one of the ESCs is disconnected . I ve done at least 100 flights on it .

Spent afternoon spraying underside of the bf110. Very pleased with the result so far. Model starting to come to life.

Along comes my wife "not sure about the colour".

"why ? I replied.

"It's Blue"

"Yes" came my reply,

It's the same colour as the sky"

"I know, It's supposed to be, it's the scale colour".

"But you'll never see it, your always losing things".

I can see her logic. Has anyone got details of a nice Strawberry and yellow bf110.smiley

Damn it don't you just hate it when they're right.... imagine the scene..... a squadron of blue and turquoise with a hint of lemon Spitfires facing a Staffle of Bf 109's in a lavenda and orange scheme oh and matching curtains at the windows....

It didnt really work for me, but it did go on nicely .

Popped into the LMS today for some Laura Ashley covering but they were freshly out of stock as there had been a run on it just lately. ( I reckon that must be down to Richard W)

They did offer me some tartan paint though but it was the wrong clan,

Hi Guys...!

Yes I'm still about. With the weather improving and paint drying thought I would share what I learnt on the Spit, thanks to Richard's encouragement, and using on the 110.

I have first drawn in lightly with pencil then, black marker the first of the panelling lines.

Then the magic.... I use a white biro to outside and below the black lines...!

with white.jpg

Weathering will be added.... a hell of a lot still to do as I'm very busy with the new job, but getting there

Hi Guys,

Well I feel I may have abandoned you for a while as I have been up to my neck in work but have managed to get some more towards finishing the old girl.

Well the camo pattern was a headache..

With the removable 'open' cockpit..

A few closer pictures..

I still need to add the Fuz decals and panel lines so still a lot to do. Enjoy the weather guys.

More when I can....

Have I missed something but I love the camo. Is it a print or did you paint it. Great job all round. Well done.

It's a paint job... I found a few dozen beers and trying to paint a straight line helps...wink

I still have to make the anti glare exhaust tubes too.

Nice to see this thread come alive again and good evening all..

Have also been busy with other things, built a Wot4 (wood) for a friend, also carried out a major refurb on my workshop. Revisited my 110 on Saturday -sprayed wings and fus.. Just got to add the the dark camouflage pattern . Certainly hope to get a maiden in this season.

Paul - earlier on you described how you put on the panel lines. Any chance of a close up so I can see more clearly the end result. Yours is looking really good! I like it.

That really does look like the one at Hendon Paul . It's very much a "Predator" isnt it ? The Antlers look fabulous too .

We must try and get some pictures of it in a suitable setting . Is it likely to snow soon?crook
