Re: Hawker Fury build

That looks pretty good, it's almost impossible to get that stuff on without wrinkles. It's why I don't let people look too closely at the Hart :)

Re: Hawker Fury build

Beautiful! The Hawker bi-planes of that time are some of the best looking planes ever built. I sometimes think it's a shame to cover up a stringered fuselage like that. Solartex would probably be far too heavy for such a small model, Litespan perhaps? Otherwise tissue & dope as you say. Camera is re...

Re: Sea Harrier

I thought that would catch your eye :) It's a hand-launched pusher, wish I had a cunning plan but no... There is an EDF version exhausting though the rear nozzles, but I think that's rather risky and would probably be under powered. Although you have to buy the plan, the build guide is freely availa...

Sea Harrier

I'm building a couple of Depron models at the moment. The first is the Sea Harrier, from Craig Clarkson's plan in https://jetworks.online/parkjets/ I've been describing it in the Jetworks Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1826370074287164, but for those not on Facebook or not in that ...

Re: Cutting Depron

The Needle cutter has been in use for almost 3 years now, although obviously it only gets deployed when cutting out parts for a new Depron model. Although generally reliable, I have had problems in overheating of the nozzle, even with cooling fins fitted. The needle is 0.55mm running at 6000rpm in a...

Re: Canadair CL-415

...and of course just after posting, realised I'd forgotten to put the floats on... So here it is complete with wing-tip floats.

Re: Canadair CL-415

Finished! Now if only I had chance to fly it, should look good in this sunshine. Should be fairly easy to see at any time really... Colours and markings are for the Sécurité Civile, the French civil defence organisation which does aerial fire-fighting among other things. 20200423_151451.jpg 20200423...

Canadair CL-415

For a while now I've been looking for a replacement for my well-used Cargo Twin which met its demise a couple of years ago. Finally I found this: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2291100-Canadair-CL-415-Super-Scooper-Firefighting-Seaplane-with-Plans-and-Video A plan for the Canadair CL...
