My 43" ME 109 had her Bwlch baptism today. And she flew surprisingly well! What a place though. I enjoyed the day with local Mark and Marcel who had travelled from Switzerland.

Mark prepares the Cappucino!


Slope soaring LOL...... Slope shredding devil 


Marcel and his homebuilt GRP Jart


An impressive soarer is an understatement when expertly piloted, as was the case with Marcel on the sticks


Back to the old school with balsa


Even more balsa in the form of a slightly modified P6

Mark, it's never too late to deliver on a promise wink

Here are some pictures I took on the same day:

Now alert your Spitfires and get her down!!

That shows that this forum can unite modelers across frontiers.

I never doubted you Marcel! Hope you are well and you are managing to keep your thumbs nicely tuned. The Spit's haven't been built yet but Charlie is anxious to get into the cockpit of my latest Hurricane project which is still in the workshop.

OK Charlie's scale is a little on the big side, but doesn't he look at home.

My friend painted him and he always does an excellent job, just love the Aran jumper and Bomber jacket.

your Hurricane looks great, will it be ready for next summer? I hope I could make it to Wales again. Still have to ask my boss to give me 2 weeks of additional (unpaid) holidays.

Meanwhile, I keep my fingers tuned in the workshop as well (as long as my superglue does not stick them together), just received a bunch of CNC cut wing cores. Lots of glassing ahead...

Of course, last year I flew as much as I could. Some impressions from home (well, about 100km from home - still fifteen times closer than the Bwlch), how to make hiking trips more exciting due to the hiker's lifted c/g:


and how it looks at 2000m AMSL:


Surely this looks stunning, but I prefer the Bwlch type of flying. Thermals are not that reliable :-D

Tell the other Mark nice greetings as well!

Wow. Very impressive models and scenery Marcel. However, not sure which I'd prefer to do given the choice sloping or skiing!! At least when you ski you can use the lifts.

Watch Charlie's face when he sees this alpine flying area:


Sadly, I've never been skiing this winter
