I was hoping to do the one-day build on Friday 8th, but work may now have thrown a spanner in the works. However, I have set up the webcam software and the workbench is live. If those that are interested would like to let me know if it looks okay I would appreciate it.

Looks good to me Danny. Except... that's not a Webbit, or you've modified the design heavily?

Hi Pete, you should count yourself lucky I have shaved!
 
Thanks guys I have seen a few forumites pop on via the monitor so it seems to be working fine. I will switch it off again and reactivate when we have a date for the build.......
 
Cheers

Okay web cam is ready and tomorrow looks like the day. I have not had a chance to prepare (too busy with Spitfire and work ) So model done in a day is going to be tough.
 
If you want to check the web cam works its here
 
I will start around 8 and try for a covered airframe, before midnight tomorrow.
 
Must be mad......

I cannot see the webcam. The URL it points to is
 
http://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/217.155.206.206
 
which looks as if it may be confused.
 
Hope this helps.

Thanks guys only worth doing if you are interested and it seems you are, so I will have a go.
 
Wanted to come up with a charity angle say a sponsored webcam build but as usual I haven't got my act together
 
I will be making a stop motion movie from the stils for those that don't get to look in on the day.
 
Cheers
Danny

Hi Danny,
looking forward to your 1 day build.I tried to do a 1 day build,even going so far as to start work at 10 minutes past midnight,setting some parts,i.e. joining fuse sides,putting ribs onto bottom spar and trailing edge,giving time for glue to set during the early hours.Although I completed about 80% of the build by that night,I couldn't complete the build.I'm sorting out the photos of how far I got.Some of my slowness was due to my using white glue for construction,with it's slow setting time.Still,it's built now,though still not covered,may be by June 25 eh....!....................cheers,and good luck,Mal.

Thanks Mal, I had intentions of preparing bits but what with working in Scotland all last week and really trying to get the fusealge on the Spit at a nice stage to stop I haven't made time.
To be honest I haven't even studied the plan as to wher I will put things so I will probably rely heavily on Chris's excellent build Thanks Chris
Might even nick his V tail geometry now he has it working

I reckon the whole thing will be one big out take LOLOL

Cheers
Guys
