  1. Not Sure if this will help with internal colours, I found it while looking for info on the CB 90. I have the kit and hope to build it as a RC model. Bob Check on Youtube there are several posts on the boat in action
  2. It's currently under restoration by HARS at Albion Park in NSW. They have progress photos on their Facebook page. It looked good at the recent Wings Over the Illawarra air show. Bob
  3. Don't forget Steve has access to two other rare airframes , the Vengence and a large chunk of a Lincoln !! Bob

    B-24 oil

    Only time to worry about a radial leaking oil is when it stops, means you've run out. 🛢
  5. The motor out of a vibrating disposable razor works a treat. Just take off the counter weight. Runs on a AAA battery and quite small.
  6. Great show and well worth the trip down from Sydney, we stayed in the glamping ground which was very comfortable although a bit warm on the Friday. We enjoyed it more than the Avalon show, people very friendly and a great atmosphere.
  7. I agree the Richard Attenborough movie was very Hollywood and not the most factual movie. Theirs Was The Glory is an excellant movie and a fitting memorial for the men of Arnhem as it was made just after the war with veterns playing themselves in the original locations. Even has a real Panther tank running around. Well worth hunting out and available on DVD. The 17th is a memorable day for all generations of Airbourne troops and long may their memory last. Bob

They are an excellent shop to deal with and very helpfull. http://www.hobbylandaustralia.com.auOr telephone 0294762588 drop the 0 calling from outside Australia Hope this helps Bob

  11. WNW are taking pre-orders for the two Felixstowes at $269 each and have available to order a dogfight double of the Felistowe and a Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 for $349. The W.29 must be the special reissue that has been mentioned before. http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/ Bob
  12. WNW are now showing the Felixstow F2a in an early and late version on their web page. A message on the page say's they Should be be received by mid December . No pricing yet, but I hope it would be about the price of the Gotha and the same size ! 92cm wingspan with removable outer wings for easy storage. New dogfight double with the new Hansa-Brandenburg ?
