  1. Ha ha, I'll bet it did. I always treat mine with great respect!
  2. Sorry, been away on me hols... Heres the stand. As you can see, the best things are the simplest. The engine mount is clamped between the stand and the floating 1/4" plate which is screwed down by hand. The plate doesnt HOLD the mount though...you might just spot a small lug sticking up on one side. These lugs, present on both sides, pass through the bolt holes in the engine mount and stop it moving. The stand is bolted down via the holes at the back. Simple and effective: cheap it was not but it's been a life long ally. D
  3. Many years ago, probably at the recommendation of Brian Winch, bless his soul, I bought an expensive Sheldon engineering USA test stand. Still in perfect use today...thank you Mr W. That test stand has been one of my trusty companions throughout my modelling life over the decades. Just had to say... D
  4. Getting there. Wings and fuz mated, all controls fitted. Now for covering: paper and thinned PVA then spray paint. Weight at the moment a little under 8lb including everything to make it fly except the finishing touches so I am hopeful for a TOW of around 8 1/2 lb, the original weighed in at 9 1/2lb. Two 80a ESC on the motors.
  5. I'm after a Black Magic in some form...plans, kit, model. Im in salisbury, wilts. Thanks
  6. Work progresses slowly...control surfaces now fitted ready for horns and pushrods. Next, assembly and balance...find out were the heck to put two lipos! Then disassemble and cover in pva and paper. I'll send pics when it is assembled though. In the mean time I bought a new radio - Futaba 16iz - so thats also being figured out and programmed for this. Im not getting much flying I must say...busy with work and other things. Cant do it all. I did acquire an old Magnum 30 4 stroke thiugh which I ran up today and found to be a real sweety.
  7. Thanks. Certainly caught me out. Oh well... D
  8. Nor me. Never mind. Thtll teach me to look closer next time D
  9. This is it. Says it is self starting...whatever that means.
  10. Grrr Like an eejit I am. I bought two 80a esc for my Ju88, all well and good. Ive just come to wire them in and find...no BEC so no servo lead so no throttle control!! I have bought the wrong type, but I dont think I have ever seen ESCs with nor control wire before. What are these for and can I use them? I think the answer to that is "no" but worth asking before I buy new ones WITH a BEC!!
  11. I like the cowls. I have got some foam card and have started work. Ive made the fromts of the cowls from grey foam, intend to add false fronts and cover the outsides with brown paper. Getting there...
  12. Brilliant. Hadnt considered foam board. Thanks. On the real thing the front cowls do look like sleeves pushed on (probably were, essentially)...excellent tip. Thanks.
  13. Motors on. Now the cowl build. More head scratching. Thinkong foam round the motors, 1/32nd skins and maybe foam nacells. Wing is fully skinned. It's coming along!
