is there some kind of worldwide shortage of OS No8 plugs. I've had some on order with a model shop for over 6 weeks. Not particularly bothered re the OS No8 but its holding up the whole order.

Apparently Ripmax have run out of No8 plugs!

Any ideas?

I've just had a root through my old IC field box & found 4 OS No8 plugs & 2 OS 'F' plugs all new in packets, albeit slightly grubby packaging as I've not flown glow for a few years now. £4 each + 50p p&p for any quantity. PM me if interested.

Try Model Technics F5 as an alternative, just as good, for OS #8. An F6 is a bit warmer, more like Enya #3.

thanks for replies ... got plenty plugs. Was just wondering as it's holding up the order I have with them.

Just that they are saying tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. Think I'll just cancel that part of order.

Ripmax might have run out of 8s as they will need money to by more.
