I seem to get pleasure from this adage, so here's the latest acquisition

A Flair Cub Fuse with nose damage and no wing

I have an old Thunder Tiger wing which is less span but should fit OK with minimum change to the fuse, and putting an OS 40FP should give more than enough goimg_5418s.jpg

img_5421s.jpgimg_5420s.jpgThen I obtained this never completed fuse which appears to have been trodden on, but it's good as a pattern maker to rebuild the front of the other one. This one has two wintips in the box with some other bits - but still no wing.

I guess that I can use the pictures from the blogs on here and these wing tips to reverse engineer a wing

All good stuff to pass the time, particularly as the weather's still not good img_5419s.jpg

A froiend was given a Flair Piper Cub that had been build by a novice but never flown (Luckily)

I got the job id refurbishing it.

When I removed the Solarfilm covering I found that the model had been covered with Solarfilm complete with backing film. Not even Andrew Hardman could work out how it has stayed on at all

IT did fly briefly but at least my friend got a very good OS 40 out of the deal
