  1. Just what I am looking for, where did you buy it please. Steve
  2. @fluffyninjaSomething is making me think that this is your first model.
  3. Is it this one from Flying-Dreams? Discus CS from Flying-Dreams - Sussex Model Centre -SMC (sussex-model-centre.co.uk)
  4. I justified the cost to myself by the build being a large part of the fun. It was not until later that I realised I had made a very robust model that would stand lots of abuse and last a lot longer than an ARTF. Steve
  5. I took that to be old, outdated information which was true when the UK warehouse was open. They have confirmed to me that they don't include VAT at checkout and the courier will collect it and forward it to HMRC upon delivery. See here- This is the way HK Global have always worked, nothing has changed. Steve PS any progress with The OHmen?
  6. Castor is a very old debate, here is one from 2007. There's a lot of good information in there. What I found most interesting was that old engines would tolerate castor, but modern engines built with finer tolerances needed synthetic. My understanding from Andy Green's topic is that all engines will run on synthetic and modern engines could have problems with castor. Nice to read a reasoned debate. Steve
  7. It was the sound that grabbed my attention, it was obviously a twin but unique to my ears. It was well past my house by the time I caught it on flightradar24. It is rare, there are only five or six airworthy examples of all types, so that could be the only Gemini 1A flying. Steve
  8. Just checked and Wholesale accounts do exist. Cross that one off.
  9. I'm thinking this is a scam. HK only email club officials is worrying as I don't remember anything on the HK site where club status was recorded. Then they are offering a bargain not available to others, be quick and send us your money before the offer expires, comes to mind. I have never heard of Hobby King Wholesale before. Steve
  10. @Peter Millerwould be the best person to answer this question and he will now get a notification because of the (@Peter Miller). Just to let you know how the forum works. Welcome to the forum BTW. Steve
  11. A black cheat line is a good idea. Solite Black is on the way. I have covered the second wing but this time I only pulled the backing off halfway which did help, more practice required though. Steve
  12. Both tips are now done in red and started on the yellow. Some unexplained reflections which could be me, it does look better than that, trust me. A couple of issues have come up with the Solite, one is obviously the colour showing through on the lapped joins and the other is that once the backing sheet is removed from the larger pieces it behaves like cling film. Given time I will come up with solutions. Steve
