Re: FN5 turrets for Wellington

Like everyone that saw your work at Gaydon yesterday Tim, they look even better in the flesh. Truly incredible attention to detail and they work so smoothly! Fabulous, many thanks for bringing them along!

Re: advice please Walbro carb choke lever

Turn the carb round so they are on the other side It'd be easier to turn the engine Rob? You can turn the choke round, fairly simple job to dismantle the butterfly and the spindle, making sure the butterfly goes back in the same way as before. It is easy to 'forget' which way round it goes after di...

Great to speak with you yesterday Tim, you certainly are the oracle when it comes to the Wellington! Looking forward to the box, then hopefully a trip down to see you and you work! Many thanks, Ian.

Re: (some) 3d printed parts for FN5 turret at 1:4.5

Hi Timothy, I'd obviously be very interested in the partial turret components. I've sent you a message though feel free to ring or text me on 0 7 7 7 3 4 8 7 1 1 1.

Cheers, Ian.

(Who knows, it might even spur some work on the restoration of JG's lovely Wellington!)

Re: My brain hurts!

Before you get the plan copied, draw two lines at 90 degrees to each other, on each sheet. I draw the lines to a length that once enlarged come to a known measurement and write "these lines to measure 500mm on the finished enlargement". This saves any hassle when you pick them up, it also ...

Re: Large Scale Dakota Kit - Got to go !

Hi Ron, what you have there is a piece of aeromodelling film history. Designed by David Boddington, these models were produced for the TV series 'Airline' with Roy Marsden in the early 80's. Ruskin Air Services was their livery. You seem to be missing, unless its bits are wrapped up, the centre sect...

Re: Moki 250 radial for sale.

Hi Ross, the price is in the first post, somewhere near is good. One sold recently for a few hundred more and that was a bit of a bitzer. This one has done very little, only ever been in one aeroplane (Airworld Sukhoi SU26) and that hasn't flown much. I'd also do a deal on anything really, ready to ...

Moki 250 radial NOW SOLD.

Moki 250 radial for sale. In very good order. It is a few years old but was bought new for an Airworld Sukhoi SU26M (that is also available perhaps) which has flown but not an enormous amount as the guy didn't fly that much and had loads of other stuff too! It last ran a year or so ago and has been ...

Re: Glen Torrance 1/3 scale Fokker DVI

Cary, your wording is a little confusing to say the least and might be putting off any potential buyers! It doesn't require an over 20kg exemption, inspection or whatever as it isn't over 20kg! Has your reworking taken it over then? If so, the model is now set up so with the addition of another Rx a...

Re: wanted info

Wow, I too remember this model, at a RR Hucknall scale day, late 90's I guess, it landed and on the taxi back careered at a leisurely pace into the pits, T boned my Mustang. The prop 'shark gilled' all the way up the leading edge of the wing and only stopped when it hit the retract unit. I don't rem...

Hi John, Bill has been on here very recently, might he still have one? Falcon Aviation I'm pretty sure were offering them a couple of years back too. Would you change anything in your design, now that you have a few more years experience behind you? I know when I did one a few years ago I changed to...

Re: FN5 turrets for Wellington

Hi Timothy, a very interesting project for sure. In the ceiling space of my workshop I have the ex Ghost Squadron Wellington which (when I get round to restoring it) I planned to do the very same thing with. This is just under 1/4 scale so I'd be interested if you would be able to supply any turret ...

Re: Selling my Dad, Dave Bailey's Planes

I remember Dave with the Parasol in the very early days of Dawn Patrol, remember seeing the smaller one fly too, many moons ago! Any ideas as to how long it is since they've flown? I've had a couple of Arthurs models in the past, look forward to more pics.

Re: Selling my Dad, Dave Bailey's Planes

Peter, pretty sure this is the smaller one as the bigger one I remember is a Parasol. Price I presume is at the bottom of the pic.

Hi Dave, just to help a little, the 'Cub' is an Aeronca Champion, the blue fuselage biplane looks a bit like a DH 87 Hornet Moth (red fuselage behind on the right is a Jiant Jabberwok, the blue and white biplane is a Precedent Stampe SV4. This Bleriot is the smaller one, I patiently await the larger...

Re: Selling my Dad, Dave Bailey's Planes

Hi Dave, I'd be interested in the bigger of the Bleriots, its one of Arthur Searl's builds from many moons ago and appeared amongst the first flightlines of Dawn Patrol a good few years back.

Sounds interesting Keith, apart from the electric bit. I think I'm pretty much sorted with a Practical Scale Zlin, but have sent you a PM for more details.
