Hope to make it! Even if only for a few hours.

Ah Fred, I've only got so much money!

If this takes the same battery as the A1, I'll take both!

Special mention must be made to our own Peter who tirelessly searched for Kevin Barrys model for well over 1 hour and came back with the model in the pouring rain, Thank you Peter.

Glad it was found! And hope the rain didn't do it much harm.

Just getting back online and seeing the thread... I'll have to see about getting out!

Definitely an idea I should have taken... Tore the servo out on my first landing. Put on a small undercarriage after that, and all was good until she went in vertically.

Cracking little plane to fly, I need to get it back in the air!

Unfortunately, it hasn't flown yet... And I left my transmitter at my parents, so can't get to fly for a while yet. 😖

Ah Fred, I just got one for Christmas... Otherwise I'd have taken this in a heartbeat.

I still keep an eye on the page from time to time.

Was disappointed to find that the fly in was last weekend after it's she'd to head up North (before I need my passport) to see the "old" folks.

It does seem that the forum has become a bit deserted...

Holy moley... Didn't think I'd started this a year ago...

Anyway, I will have about 40- 50 large sheets of foam board tomorrow.

FREE to a good home! Just come pick it up in Co Wexford!

Scale / Re: DeAgostini Spitfire - 1:10 scale - Anyone have experience?

Having started the build and got about halfway through assembling the frame of the fuse, I realised I'd made a clanger...  I placed the very first piece on the jig upside down. The result is now that there is left thrust angle in place of the correct right thrust angle.   :-[ I did try to abide by the "read twice and then read again before building"; unfortunately I've been the "better idiot" to break a fairly idiot proof method.

I pushed on regardless to finish off the fuselage and worry about fixing the angle later.  As I'm not going IC, the motor and battery will need to be shifted forward through the original firewall.  To do that, I'll construct a ply motor mount and affix into the existing firewall and correct the error that way.

I've cut the intended shapes from 3mm liteply; while perhaps not strong enough, it'll allow me to easily join to the fuse temporarily to test the fit of the cowl and motor.  Unless liteply will suffice?  Something tells me not to!

Making a little more progress...

Templates photocopied, ready to go once I clear a little more space to work!

I finally got around to starting the modifications last night... Hopefully progress may be rather faster now that I've made a start.

I did a few calculations and figure I have approximately 60mm inside the cowl to play with to fit a battery through the present firewall. This should assist in maintaining the CoG without resorting to ballast. Having never scratch built a motor box, or battery box, this could get interesting. It'll all have to be hand cut.  :(

Looking good!

On a side note... Envious of the hangar/workshop.  ;)
