Hi All

Great to see such fantastic progress from Richard and Tony.

Their nearly completed models look fabulous, looking forward to maiden reports smiley

I'm looking to get on with rudder and elevator servo installation and control runs.

Anybody out there have ideas on this ?

I'm thinking putting the servos under the cockpit floor area for ease of access but maybe further forward his better for balance considerations?

Cheers

Still a long way off with mine, although I have decicded to place the servos just in front of F4 and intend to use wire and carbon rod for push rods.

Throttle servo will fit below servo tray.

I haven't done anything with mine since Christmas. Losing about 2 months of shed time in the new year set me back and I concentrated on getting the Touché finished and I am trying to get the Chippie finished as well. When that is done, I'll get back on the Fury and the Rearwin Speedster. However, I have 3D printed some wheels which I am very pleased with.

I haven't forgotten it, I just need a clear bench and some time.

Thanks for the feedback SW, I'm thinking of going aft of F4 to stay clear of the cabane securing bolts.

cheers

I have been in touch with Nigel Wagstaff of Flightline Graphics re the possibility of him providing decals etc. of K5674 at Duxford. He says this is possible but he would particularly need a detailed image of the cock on the fin of K5674 to do a good job.

I wonder if Martyn, Tony, Danny or any other member could PM me any such image and I will pass it on to Nigel.

He has recently moved house so there will be a delay before the new workshop is up and running..

I have given him a few images of my own to start him thinking...

Thanks,

Stuart

Hi Stuart, not wishing to be negative as Nigel does amazing work, but he can be a bit pricey. Not saying it isn't worth it, for a really first class model it is worth it, but just be aware.

Have you looked on My Flickr page?

2nd page

Cheers

Thanks Danny. Yes, I have looked on your flicker pages and one or two of the cock images would be fine if I could download/save the emblem alone. I was hoping you would do it for me as I don't know how to select part of the total image and then save it ...

Sorry about my lack of technical ability!

Hi Stuart, is this any use? I can tidy it up, and do many magic things to it. Just let me know

Hi Ernie. That is kind of you. Perhaps you would lighten the background, I think the diamond was off-white, so the colours of the cock would also be stronger.

Perhaps you would PM the final version to me in as high a resolution as the transmission allows.

I thought if I get a number of the class interested we could keep the price of decals etc. within bounds!

Thanks, Stuart

Hi Stuart

Here you are.

I've strengthened the colours a wee bit. I'm not sure if its better....what do you think. I'm quite happy to pick away to get it right

Hi Stuart The background on this is lighter is lighter, and the colours stronger. It's difficult to get exact colours from photos, but this seems pretty close

A wee thought about the other side, is it exactly the same, or reversed

Hi, The wee hen faces forward on both sides, so its two sets of decals. What are you thinking of printing onto?

Does anyone have any pics of the pilots who would have flown the Fury? My apologies if I've missed them in the thread.

I just got an email from Nigel Wagstaff. He is still estimating 4/6 weeks away from producing masks decals etc. I recently bought a Silhouette Cameo cutter, so will be attempting to produce my own masks.
