Re: NEXT sport jet by Mirce

More pics, when ordering the kit I purchased the canopy fixing kit plus the hinge & horn kit along with the wing tube. The one thing I did not order which I wish I had is the servo hatch kit. For the build there is a massive library of pictures on Mirce site showing the build sequence. It is sta...

NEXT sport jet by Mirce

Well with being in isolation at home I decided to get building this new jet kit I purchased some months ago. I went for this model because it was different in appearance to other sports jets and it flew on a 100 size turbine. I did not check out its size which has surprised me at how big it is at 10...

Re: 1/3.3 Hispano Buchon

Still working on the wing, it’s slow progress but getting there. Also started on the plug for the canopy / frame which we aim to mould in carbon.

Re: 1/3 Scale P-51

I have now made the new tail feathers to the point of fitting new wing tubes as I could not get a replacement tube to suit the existing set up. As fit the engine, this has had a major strip and rebuild. ZDZ seem to be a jinks with me. This engine was new direct from the factory but arrived with no i...

1/3.3 Hispano Buchon

It’s 5 years since I started this project, the reasoning behind it was to build an aircraft to fit my Zenoah 124 twin,s that I had made. Two aircraft were started, one the Buchon and two the P-40 at 1/4 scale. Both fuselages were done as skeletons then all work stopped. Late on last year I got the b...

Re: 1/3 Spitfire

After another factory unit move in 2019 I have more space to get on with the bigger projects I have on the go. The Spitfire is now on her wheels and the engine fitted. I am looking to get her test flown later in 2020

Re: 1/3 Scale P-51

Not all engines are suitable and in many cases the front bearings can cope, with my Zenoah projects I add a second bearing to give added support due to the crank design.

Zenoah 186 Triple

I am putting the Zenoah Triple up for sale as I no longer have need for it due to a change of plans.

If not sold I will be stri...
