Re: Off - Piste

Its fabulous work but I hope they dont push her too far- I think she is unsound at high speeds, and certainly when slowing down. Another accident is waiting to happen. Its a treasure.

Re: ELVINGTON 2018

I have asked for a slots for Gee Bee racer at this event and permission has been granted However as there are so few Gee Bee Y models about, I thought maybe the slot should be opened up to different types of 30s racers ie Gilmore etc. If you feel you are up to flying with 10 or more in one slot, le...

Re: Latest Journal

Simply stop calling it the Large Model Association, and say LMA, as we all do. Nobody calls the BMFA by its full name! As Glenn said, just by using the acronym on clothing etc it solves any other innuendo.

Re: Latest Journal

I don't think we should get too hung up on sharing an acronym with completely unrelated bodies...we do already as you can see below, and we don't even make top of the list today! LMAAcronym.JPG LMFA only gets slightly rude if you stick an 'O' on the end (when it's not LMFA any more) -and thats neve...
