Morning all,

David - thank you for the information, and my leisure task of the day is to research the models mentioned.

Nigel - I was on the verge of abandoning the thread last night - not the build, just the thread - it is not what I intended it to be so, after a nights rest, I have decided to not continue with it.

All - thank you all for your comments, information and time. It has helped a lot.

Nu Me don't abandon your thread. It is valuable to your building. Sure you can build from the kit instructions but on the thread you can get all sorts of opinions, some you may want to apply and some you will rightly ignore.

Very occasionally two other posters will disagree and have an arguement, this is unfortunate but you can skip their private discussion and possibly (I have never done it) click on "ignore member" althoughI don't know what that does.

The main point is that this is YOUR thread so just keep it up. You will get honest help, advice and opinions. Just ignore the petty squabbles that don't apply to the subject matter.

As to your desire to build that P47. Well as has been said, it will be a real challenge and you will need an awful lot of flying experience to fly it safely how ever just to give you inspiration below is a picture of a large controlline Bristol Brittania.

This was built back in the 50s, it was a contrcol line model. It was the builders first ever modal that he had ever built.

I totally agree with Peter's comment above.

Also with Nigel's & David's earlier posts.

Nu Me > have another night's rest if needed, but please reconsider abandoning your thread for the evident reasons Peter explained. You will be grateful later on...

Percy > regarding 'apologies', IMHO, you're the one who should present some to Nu Me for converting his build thread into an 'open battlefield'... Requesting some modifications of the CoC also tells a lot about your personality.

Cheers to all

Gentlemen, can I apologise to all of you if my actions have spoiled a perfectly good, and informative thread.

Nu Me, I would not take much notice of a pair of grumpy old gits. Carry on.

I've removed a number of off-topic posts from the thread. If any of you have any differences of opinion, deal with them, privately rather than use any handy thread as a boxing ring. It's rather rude, to say the leastface 5

Nu Me 1, I'll apologise on behalf of the mods for letting this interfere with a useful, informative build thread. We will keep an eye on things. I'm sure the majority of viewers would prefer that you continue to share the build as you're getting good advice herethumbs up

Nu Me 1 may I add my voice to all who have asked you to continue the thread. Not only will you be helped by the advice of experienced aeromodellers, even though sometimes it's conflicting advice, but you may also help other novices who have not yet built a model aircraft.

Hi Nu Me 1

Totally agree with all those who are asking you to continue. I know that sometimes threads degenerate (often very quickly!) but you may pick up a gem or 2 that helps you; I'm sure that even those who have been building/flying for years often learn something.
