Re: Zirolli B25 Mitchell build

Once satisfied with the interior detailing, the glazing was then permanently fixed and masked off. The model was then given another coat of primer, then handed over to me for panel lines and riveting. 1/64th fine line graphic tape was used for the panel lines.

Re: Zirolli B25 Mitchell build

My last entry on this build thread was January 2013, the thread was then diverted from my build to other peoples models for a couple of pages until it faded into history. In the meantime, I have built a second B25 to replace the original, which came to a sad demise before it was finished, due to a m...

Wanted, 1/2 scale pilot

Posted on behalf of Alan Greaves, as in title, a half scale civilian pilot is required for his Turbulent. Preferably full body, but half body will probably do. We don't want to go down the road of spending megga bucks for what is, in essence, a doll, so any useful ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Ziroli P40 build

Hi Frank, regarding your rivet detail, the Dremel soldering iron you've used, is it the "versatip" gas torch model? I've seen them advertised at Screwfix for £34.99. I'll want to pick your brains the next time we meet up, but I'd like to know which particular iron you've used. All the best...

Re: Christmas Journal

Nice to see you got the "Brewers Loop" models in the Southport show report, you've certainly got to grips with that fancy camera. We really must get a routine together for next season. If we don't see you before the start of the festivities, all the best to you and yours. Dave Jones, on be...

Re: Use of our website

I like to submit build threads when I've got a project on. I like to think people find it interesting to see a build in progress and maybe pick up some ideas, likewise, it's nice for other builders to chip in with their two penneth worth if they think I'm doing something wrong. If I'm in doubt about...

Re: resin covering with glass cloth

Hi Andy, our crew have just covered four models with G4 Pond Sealer, we won't be using it again. I know people have used it with success and will readily recommend it, it does have a lot of plus points, especially regarding cost and quick curing time. However, the down side, especially for me, was I...

Re: 1/4 scale Sea Fury

That pretty much completes my input to this project, the last remaining job to do was to see the model fully assembled for a photo opportunity in the back garden. It will now be handed over to Tony and Paul for for final finishing and painting. I trust they will keep us updated during the finishing ...

Re: 1/4 scale Sea Fury

I've been in the process of giving the fuselage it's second coat of epoxy resin and, while the resin has been curing, I've turned my attention to the main undercarriage doors. Although the doors are cut as per the plan, I think they are too close to the underside of the wing at the top and, should t...

Re: DC 3 Dakota

Hi Richard, I've used Dubro large scale control horns on all the control surfaces. They are the big black plastic ones that you buy in pairs and they are screwed into plywood hard points. If you scroll back to page 5 of the build thread and look at the photos posted on 7th and 25th February you will...

Re: 1/4 scale Sea Fury

The remaining gaps between the tail plane and the fuselage and fin were then filled with 3/8” balsa epoxied into position, and the remainder of the 1/8” sheeting was added. The tail wheel bay was cut out, as was the hatch for the rudder servo bay.

Re: 1/4 scale Sea Fury

I’ve left fitting the tail plane and fin for as long as possible because, once they are fitted, I’ll struggle to manhandle the fuselage in my limited space. However, the time had come where I couldn’t put it off any longer. Alan came over to give me a lift and add an extra pair of eyes to ensure eve...

Re: 1/4 scale Sea Fury

The hatch cover has now been hinged and fitted and the service panel installed. I’ve lined the opening at the front and rear to tidy it up and also provide a fixing point for any charging sockets that may be added in the future. The Weetronics receiver was then mounted on a ply plate and fitted in t...
