Re: Ziroli p51 mustang retracts

Can't directly help I'm afraid, but I'm building one of these too. It's designed for the Robart 145 mains which drop straight in. I wanted to use electrics, so got a set of Electron ER50's with Robart 682 main legs and 6 inch wheels. Reverse engineering the wing to take the ER50's was 'challenging' ...

Re: Robart Air Kit wanted

If no joy secondhand, they are on eBay. I got one last year.

Impending balsa shortage.

Both SLEC and Balsa Cabin have posted notices today advising that they have lost their primary balsa suppliers. It seems that Chinese wind turbine blade production is buying the lot from under them. They expect prices to double or more in the near future. If you're planning a winter project - get in...

Re: Wanted - Ziroli DC3 Nose and Cowls

If you have no joy, look into buying these directly from Nick Ziroli in the USA. Even after the dollar exchange rate, VAT, Customs and handling charge - it will still work out cheaper than other options.

Re: Ziroli P-51 full kit and accessories

Hi Cary,

Thank you for thinking of me. £400 was the top of my budget I'm afraid, so if you have a better offer then please go ahead with it.

Very best wishes,
Scott

Re: Ziroli P-51 full kit and accessories

Hi John,

Yes - potentially interested in the retracts. I have some of Dave's stuff and it's excellent. Could you possibly send me a photo and an asking price please ?

Hi Cary,

Thank you, that's what I'm after. I can offer you £400 including P&P down here to Buckinghamshire ?

Cheers,

Re: FN5 turrets for Wellington

Amazing ! The turrets on my 1/5 Wellington consist of a pair of biros, a cotton reel and a Tesco's cheesecake box. I now feel somewhat inadequate. :-)

Re: Most typical scales of currently flying LMA Wellingtons

Hi Tim,

SLEC says their Wellington is 1/5 but it isn't. Full size is 26.26m and the SLEC kit is 3.96m. That makes the scale 1:6.6

A true 1/5 model would be well over 17 foot span. Yikes !

If you want any actual measurements from the SLEC Wellington, please let me know.

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

Something has occurred to me ... I have to register myself and my car, and pay my road tax. I also have to insure my car. Not having road tax does NOT invalidate my insurance, I've looked into this and it's quite correct, they are separate things. Is this not a precedent that the LMA/BMFA insurers c...

Steve's stuff is excellent quality and superb value. I'm starting a big Welly too! I'm sorted for most bits, but finding 7inc...
