Re: Convair YF2Y-1 Sea Dart

Alex,another thing that you should be praised for ,is the quality of the photographs,please dont say they are taken on a mobile phone.I suspect that a lot of our members saw the 'Spitfire factory',what surprised me was the fact that when the Greek owners came to view their £2.5 million Spitfire,they...

Re: Impending balsa shortage.

It was used to line the inside of fuel tanks on aircraft in WW2 and to line liqued gas tankers.So I think our toys have always been way down the list of preferd users.

prop rotation electric twin

I am looking at the front of the model,does the left motor rotate clockwise or anti clockwise.I want to use the ability of an electric motor to run in either direction, to avoid swing at take off,also less effect if power setups are not identical.Thank you in antisipation,as they say.

Allan asked a sensible question,my club has the same initials as yours,I live in Warwickshire.Looking at the events page once ,thought 'I did not realise we were putting on an event' I should have known I was on the committee at the time.

Re: Hawker Typhoon restoration

I gave the same info to a guy in Canada who is building a Tempest.His reply was that the waters around Sylt are too dangerous for diving due to the large amount of dumped munition,it was home to German U boats and was,I think, the first place we bombed in WW2. Nothing to do with large models but sti...

Dave,brings back memories.I worked on Tempest 5 in 1953.Used as drouge tugs for air to air gunnery practice.I put a sledgehammer thru the cam covers of the Sabre,about a dozen of them,before dumping them in the sea off the coast of Sylt

Paul, Paul Matts scale airplane drawings volume 2 has drawings and a Black and White photo,not the best that I have seen.It looks like the top of the V ends are simply pivoted and the inner strut is attached to the fuz with a rubber compression block on the fuz centre line
