Re: Harry Harland Memorial Fly-In Sept 16th/17th

Thanks for the pic's, Dave and, yes, the weekend went well - a fitting tribute to Harry! It was nice to have Harry's daughter, Karen, to do the presentation of the trophy, Iain McKenzie being the first recipient with one of his old models, the Comper Swift. Incidentally the trophy has been excellent...

Excellent video, thanks. Peter's work was well-rewarded at the weekend - I think he was more nervous than me!!

Re: Super Constellation

... so 5 years later - and several thousand hours of Pete's life - we finally completed the Connie's 12 certification flights at Border Gliding Club today, a beautiful, expansive site but less than ideal, blustery conditions. All 220lb of the beast got chucked round like a trainer but, thankfully, w...

Dr Dennis Bancroft

Recently picked up this video on the web. It's of interest because Dennis Bancroft was an LMA member in the early days. I recall him ambling up and introducing himself at Woburn Abbey probably around 1990. He'd been reading some of my articles on large models - particularly one on why large models f...

MIG 15

A very big box came with my birthday present the other day - a Flytechnique, 1/4 scale MIG 15. It's an absolute superb quality composite kit with all scale features (it's been on order for 2 years as there's a big demand). I don't normally regard composites as 'true' scale building, but 'assembly' p...
