With a large Mustang on his shopping list, Neil Diment changes tack and is seduced by the 3D capable Bushmaster from Legacy Aviation. Flying pictures by Al Morrow.

Let me cast your mind back to happier, more settled times... It’s August 2019 and I’m at the Nats with my mate, Billy. Two Scotsmen on the annual pilgrimage and we’ve headed into the Nexus Models tent so that I can check their price on the new Hangar 9 P-51 and look at some power options. Hanging from the ceiling Billy spots what appears to be a fairly large Turbo Beaver. 'Awf'y nice model that. Crackin’ scheme too!', he muses.

Kevin Powling describes how he replicated the varied all metal finish of his Mick Reeves Spitfire using just one base colour

For many years I have had an interest in aviation. This was sparked by the fact that, in my early years, my parents had a farm that was situated at the end of the runway of Martlesham Heath Aerodrome, in Suffolk. It was close. One of the landing lights was outside the kitchen door! At that time, in the early 1950s, it mainly had Lincolns, then later Meteors, Canberras and other jets.

For this coming flying season, if indeed there is one, I will be competing in 'Flying Only' with two airframes, a Black Horse 85” Chipmunk and a Seagull 80” Chipmunk. The Black Horse takes a pair of 5S LiPo packs, giving 10,000 mAh and the Seagull a single 5S-5000.

Coming soon in RCM&E is a review of this neat 750mm wingspan EDF jet modelled on the USAF training aircraft. Powered by a 12-blade 64mm fan unit, the Hawk has fixed gear for operation from typical club grass strips and suits 4S Lipos (2600mAh recommended). It is supplied with five 9g digital servos.

Arnaldo Correia electrifies Keil Kraft’s vintage towline glider.

The Invader was one of six Keil Kraft kits recently chosen for re-release by Ripmax. During my (mis-spent) youth I flew free-flight gliders with long, slender fuselages and was always fascinated by the vintage, full fuselage gliders of yore.
