Re: Wanted - Large Warbird RTF......

Phil,what version of the Tempest are you building ? I bore people to death telling them that I worked on target towing Tempest 5 in the early 1950 .I also smashed up the last remaining and brand new Napier Sabres engines.Always wanted to build a model of the 5,but too late in life now.

Re: Engine/silencer joint repair

Thanks for your help,both of you.I now know the cause,the timing was 12-14 degrees (I had used the original sensor mounting holes),but for the Rexl unit it should be 28 degrees.I have filed the mating faces and now making a bracket to support the silencer.

Re: Engine/silencer joint repair
