  1. Great finish and great photography to match. Very well done!
  2. Out of interest what size belt rivets do you use for your pedestals and do you cut the heads off?
  3. Hi rogue, probably passed you at some point around as I work at the same place! Always handy for being able to go to Telford every year.

    Anyone know if there are plans for better signage to differentiate between IPMS and non members approaching the entrance of the TIC from the outside? For some reason it was all a bit of a muddle last year as compared to previous years and traders/competitors also getting stuck. I'd estimate it delayed my entry by about half an hour.
  5. Glad to see this revived from the shelf of doom. Watching with interest just surprised that there's never been an aftermarket conversion for this as I'd I've thought it'd be quite popular!
  6. TQ split, check NR, safe single engine speed, climbing away if I recall from 20 odd years ago. Remember practicing the double computer freeze in the old sims at CU.
  7. Ian, in response to your April question try http://www.just-bases.co.uk/- I think that's who you're after. Ben
  8. As, like many others, I have a stash that'll last me a lifetime I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good source of styrene cement? Whilst I have quite a few bottles of Tamiya Extra Thin I was wondering if it is possible to purchase a larger bulk quantity of equivalent cement and decant it as and when required into the smaller bottles? Suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated. Benjy.
  9. Wow, you certainly have patience to make that. Muchos kudos!!!
  10. As ever Pappy very, very nice piece of work. Love your finishing and I think that the weathering is spot on!
  11. The "strakes" are pretty much similar to a wing as in they create a pressure differential either side of the tail boom. As more power is "pulled" in there is a greater downdraft from the main rotor. This torque has to be countered by the tail rotor which too is demanding power from the engines. With the strakes providing an aerodynamic effect this reduces the amount of power required for the tail rotor and thereby increases efficiency, fuel consumption and allows for greater lift - well that's the theory sort of.... Hope this helps. Benbow http://blog.aopa.org/helicopter/?p=309
  12. Wondering if anyone could please recommend an App/Apps, preferably free, for the iPad to add frames, text and arrows/lines to pictures. Have seen some posts where people have presented their work really nicely and, as I do most stuff on the iPad it would be really handy. Thanks.
  13. Does this help?? http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234963155-airfix-124-spitfire-vb-finished/
