As Phil says, you can do it on the sticks, but if ever there was a lazy waffly kind of a model, this is it, so I'm for the easy life and just mix it in. If you make the horns yourself, it's not difficult to engineer them to have different fore and aft hole positions, but this isn't exactly arerodynamically critical and if it looks about right, it's generally ok. Something like twice as much up as down won't be far off, or even eliminate the down completely, it will all work.

Phil's a craftsman who rightly takes pride in his workmanship, I tend to be satisfied with the lazier option. Something of a (not so) artful codger, which others might have noticed!

Hi Chaps, that looks ace Robert

Seeing this post has made me realize I missed several replies, sorry chaps.

I gave my Bistormer away to a clubmate at Lower Drayton, haven't seen it since, though he did fold the back seat on it as he loaded it to take it away

Cheers

Danny

Oi young Robert, you pinched my reg number.....

My Ruhig Tiger (Radio Modeller Nov 1990 plan), built in 1991......

You can't go wrong with a Boddo design if it's built right ( and builds don't get much better than Danny's). With DB designs, many were variations on a theme, using tried and tested construction methods. There was even a (sort of) Barnstomer with a cabin - the Expo 80. All the designs were crackers. I must have worked my way through a few in my time. I always liked the Barnstomer/BiStormer series though. Models rarely have this much character.....A lot like Boddo himself actually.
