Mossie Retracts

I have a 72" Mossie, I think it's a CMP D240 model, it had two 42 glow engines in it, will be converting to leccy, this should not be a problem, I hope. 1395509221992.jpg 1395509158573.jpg The retracts that were in it are in my opinion no longer fit for purpose,(a nice set of air retracts would...

Re: Small project

After a fair amount of cleaning up and rubbing down it was time to do a bit of covering, only the surfaces for the moment, next cleanup job will be the wings, couple of small mods to be done with regard to quick release strut fixings then covering.

Re: Mr. mulligan 129" 32%

This plane is definitely coming together very nice, I like the idea of keeping both rudder and elevator servos in the detachable tail box I take it nothing will be visible except the control rod on the rudder. Very nice. You will be ordering the covering by the 50mtr roll for this plane, that's if i...

Re: Goliath redo

John

Thank you for this information, being told one thing and reading another and someone suggesting another gets a bit confusing, I am still learning all this stuff, but will keep at it.

Once again thanks for your assistance

Sounds like a good idea, then again, anyone saying they will do it and doing it are two different things.

Re: Small project

Did some more cleaning on fuz and wings, also some repair to some spars that were cracked, and fitted tartan 26cc, just a dry fit though, so tank and other parts can be positioned and installed.
