This Month’s Regulars
First of our regular columns this time around is Retro Ramblings, in which Shaun Garrity explores several vintage themed topics, starting with transforming some ‘bring & buy’ bargains into practical everyday flying machines.
In Aerobatic Scene, Keith Jackson describes ‘Flight Coach’, which uses the latest tracking technology to map a pattern model’s flight and compare it to perfectly shaped manoeuvres, whilst in Weekenders our Alex shows how to make a perfect ‘chevron’ splice to extend the length of balsa sheets.
Danny Fenton follows up with more DB Auster build notes in Make It Scale, and Mark Wood makes a welcome return as our Power Play engine columnist with the first part of a review of the SH GF-6 petrol engine.
This month we have a couple of cracking reviews for you, starting with the first part of Andy Sephton’s article on the VQ Models P-51B Mustang. As a full-size warbird pilot, we are especially looking forward to Andy’s flight assessment of this Razorback version of the famous US fighter, but you’ll have to wait just a bit longer for Andy to complete his flight trials (darned Covid again!)
Whilst you wait please luxuriate in David Ashby’s big balsa build of the vintage style Sinbad electric glider, a 2.5 metre span re-imagining of the 62-inch Super Sinbad kit originally made by Berkeley Models in the USA.
Part review, part model product ‘How To’ is probably the best way to describe Stuart Marsden article on covering with Eze Dope, in which he uses a VMC Sparrowhawk rubber kit to show how to get the best from this modern-day alternative to cellulose dope.
Alex Whittaker walks us around a stunning CARF P-47 Thunderbolt before turning his attention to a welcome piece on scale model helicopters.
And, to bring things to a close for July, Jeff Barringer describes his build of an eye-catching four EDF Concorde.
