Re: 2020 Renewals

Done, Is there an ability to print out some form of membership card? or will that come with the Op number in the new year?
Thanks

Re: DH Vampire

Sir Isaac is a particularly cruel and ruthless Deity that we disciples follow.

Congratulations on Build 1, it looks amazing and I hope that now that the god have had their sacrifice, all future flights are trouble free.

Re: Thank you all drone owners

I feel your pain but if you are packing it all in, I hardly think it fair to blame the extra nine quid, especially as the LMA are paying it for you this year. The whole subject has really been flogged to, and beyond, death in the various forums. I fail to understand all the excitement. I've done all...

Re: Foam veneer wing lightweight finish?

Alan it's exactly the same as for covering a core without the veneer. AS long as both sides are done together there are no issues. It leaves a good finish for paint but can have further coats of PVA and be rubbed back for an even better finish.

Re: Foam veneer wing lightweight finish?

You can brown paper/pva bare foam cores, veneered foam or sheet balsa. a quick google will give you many variations on the theme.

Re: Foam veneer wing lightweight finish?

Brown wrapping paper and PVA slightly watered. Cheap, tough sandable, takes paint well. On all sheet models it's brilliant. Did you ever see any of Chris Golds' models?

Do both sides at the same time, the shrinkage is strong but it is a great stressed skin finish

Re: FN5 turrets for Wellington

This turret is simply a work of art and, sadly, I feel that it has no place on a flying model. It would be such a waste. It reminds me of the Spitfire and Mustang models on display in Hendon / Cosford and built by David Glen and it deserves an equally auspicious home. Fair pay to you Mr Huff, I thin...

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

I think that we are still in 'sit back and wait' territory. It's a good result as far as it goes, at least there is some acknowledgement of competencies gained through the model flying associations and a slight reduction in the fee but overall it remains a crock of equine faeces that will have littl...

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

I agree that the suggested fee isn't massive in the scheme of things. What isn't acceptable is to impose the legislation onto a group of existing users who are knowledgeable and law abiding when all can see the utter and complete pointlessness of what is being imposed. I could even go along with the...

Rob, What reasons do 'the other side' put forward for requiring registration to be annual and not say 5 yearly?

Walbro Fuel Inlet. Removeable?

[img] img_9002c.jpg [/img] Hi All, On a Zenoah 38 when fitted with a carb bend, the fuel inlet is turned to be adjacent to the exhaust and points straight toward the silencer. In use the fuel pipe softens in the heat and kinks, cutting off the fuel supply (and it a potential fire hazard) Pic for inf...

Re: Paint Masks

A bit of up front investment required, a vinyl cutter is well worth having and does most things down to about 12mm. Any less than that, a laser printer (waterproof ink) and decal paper

Re: Warped wings

Hi Tom,
On that model the wings are very flexible and the rigging does all the work.
