Tough decision Ralph.... would have to do both  :)

And yes Kevin..... that is absolute heresy. Naughty step for you!

Oh la la...... Swept wing and canalizer. I’m in heaven. JP might be busy cutting wings if we can get the plans!

Yes. Interested in Mt Leinster gathering. Will spread the word among the SRFC crew.

Will spread the word among the SRFC crew. Hope to pop down one of the days.

Kevin you have a Flamingo 2001, it is the latest version, not the one that Fred is looking for, different vintage.

If you are ever interested in parting with please let me know. Always loved the flamingo. Loved the Alpina too.

@Fred with all your skills surely you could design and kit a similar model  :)

One of my favorites after the Alpina. Would love one too!

Yes there are a few of us from SRFC that brave the elements. Full thermal gear necessary! Kilakee mainly. The odd time at old Wicklow head.

Would venture to Mt Leinster if there was a get together organised and weather looked promising. Harder to do with the shorter days.

Hi Jivaro,
That would really be a great help. I was wondering how I was going to do that.

Hi JP,
That’s fantastic and thanks to Bill for the plans!

Would go for the 2.4m. Go big or go home as they say 😊. I will build the smaller one also but at least the ribs are on the plans for that version.

Hi Ralph,
Yes was really nice to catch up with old friends. Mass build would certainly be cool. Hopefully it’s not too challenging to cut some wings. Have always wanted one of these (Nostalgia 😊) and I like the color scheme. My vinyl cutter will be put to good use.

Looking forward to next month,

Hi JP,
Attached are the pdf plans for the BPLR Madslide we were chatting about over the weekend. There are two versions, 2.3m and 1.5m.

Link to model and details here:

It's an oldish design (late nineties/early noughties) but a classic. Google translate does a nice job for non-french speakers  :)

All the best,

I can change my mind too if you want...... maybe narrow the poll based on top 2 or 3?

Thanks Fred. Great suggestions. The F86 is my favorite jet of all time, so it was a simple choice for me. Never have done a chrome finish so that would be fun. The plans in RCME this month are a bit small but could be scaled up? The hurricane is a good option as you say since the plans/ wood pack etc are readily available. A fouga magister would have been nice too, but I know you’ve already been there done that! Loved the silver swallows........

Looking forward to the poll results
