Evening all, anyone got a Smart Move or similar they want to move on? Airframe only or complete aeroplane, or even kit would be good.

I bought a much neglected Smart Move off eBay a year or two back. It lacks a cowling. Anybody have a spare? Anybody any other ideas?

I've got a DSM Shapir (sp) in my loft. Very little flown, it needs to paint washing off and refinishing. The paint I used started to soften after a couple of flights and I was so brassed off that all the hard work putting it on was wasted it was quickly retired and has never emerged again. Originally flown with an ST90 and Spring Airs. In the DN9 area.

DD, try Carbon copy. They usual have a good range and stock sizes.

Thanks Percy and Cymaz, I'll look into it when I've finished other projects.

Where do I get blue foam from?

White foam as used for packaging works OK for making cowls - cover the outside with thin brown paper using thinned PVA. This gives a smooth surface for the glassfibre. White foam can easily be shaped using brand new coarse glasspaper- takes very few minutes. When resin has set the foam can be picked out bit by bit to give a clear interior back to the brown paper.. Some people dissolve it out with petrol instead.

When I spoke to Geoff at Foamwings last summer he told me he planned to start making these kits, he was very busy at the time and I don't know if he has made any progress with this, these are his contact details if this is of interest. There's nothing on his website but is good at answering his phone.img_1977.jpg

Lol admirer your optimism. Make sure you pay with PayPal, at least you can get your money back.

Brian, that is very nice - what sort of price did you have in mind, and where are you based? Can you PM me?

 

Thanks Masher - I would need to strip that and recover it though

 

Percy: thanks for the info.

 

Stu: That may be exactly what I am after ( I like a bit of a build ) And it's close to my sister's house too.  any chance of some more info? 

 

 

Cheers all
