Looking for an airframe for a decent sized tug. Needs to be tidy. Something to house an 80 or thereabouts.

WANTED - YT International Bronco ARTF kit

Does anyone have one of these kits either untouched or part done for a club mate.
He likes mine so much he wants one of his own (there's no accounting for taste).
They are 8 foot span.
Cash waiting.
Thanks.

Re: Wellington build thread

Thanks for the comments Tim. The geodetics were time consuming but worth it. I get to take the model to a few events each year (mostly LMA shows) and fly it locally in the North West. I plan to do a bit more scale detail over the winter when my workshop is up and running. The windows need cross memb...

Re: DENIS[CLAUDE]SMITH RIP

Sad to hear of Claude's passing. He was a true gent. I had many an interesting chat with him whilst a member at Catton. Another fine LMA member lost and WW2 veteran.

Re: N.I.B. Zenoah GT 80 boxer twin

Hi Richard.
Karl sold this recently.
I have one the same but easy start instead of spring start.
All new in a box untouched.
You might be fixed up now but if not you can have this for the same amount.

Re: Premier retract Lancaster tail wheel

Hi Andy. Not too bothered about the exact scale position. I preferred to site the wheel where it is for structural and practical reasons to do with assembly. No doubt it will be pointed out to me on the flight line together with the lack of rivets... Please post the video ASAP after yours takes to t...

Ziroli Beech Test Flight

I always had my eye on this project after seeing it at Pete Siggins house a while ago. Since then it has had several owners but after seeing it up for sale again I travelled to the edge of the known earth (Barrow in Furness) and struck a deal. At that point it had still not been flown. Some modifica...

Re: Pond Sealer

Hi Nick. I just covered my model with 25g cloth and used G4 pond sealer. I trimmed off the cloth after the first application and sanded the edges. After that I put another coat on and sanded that down with 240 grade then a third cold again sanding down before the primer. The third coat might sound e...
