Re: Spitfire

I didn't know if it was true, but I had heard that the merlin engine made all the difference.

Re: Spitfire

Personally think the mustang was the better plane.

Spitfire

I know some of the members are also into building planes so I thought they may be interested in my next door neighbours build. He has just finished after a long build. It is an 80% scale Spitfire kit build running on a v6 engine.

Re: Silicon Bronze vs Stainless

So I suppose the same applies for bolts etc when attaching prop strut and rudder port. Both of these are bronze (not totally sure as to what alloy) and I have a choice of through bolting these with backing plates using silicone bronze or stainless. As well as the corrosion of the stainless, would yo...

Re: Filling pin holes left by staple legs

Probably a filler before I started epoxying would have been the go but now I have a few layers on I am not sure that will work. Bill is probably right and I am stressing about nothing. Anyway I have a couple of layers of clear coat to go yet which could solve the problem.

Filling pin holes left by staple legs

So there must be an easy way to fill the pin holes left by staple legs in the final layer. I have applied that many coats of epoxy and sanded off that I have lost count and still there a a lot of dimples in the final mahogany layer. Below the water line it did not matter as I painted that section an...

Thank you to all the well wishers. I am very much looking forward to the flip and a new stage in the boat build.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well things never progress as quick as you think or want them to, but there you go. On a more positive note though, after a two and a half year waltz with cancer my last blood tests came back with my markers undetectable. I'm very happy with that although I may have a vested interest. Yesterday I fi...

Re: Tahoe 23

My wife decided the bathroom needed a renovation before Christmas and visitors so the final coat of paint has been delayed. I still hope to have it done before Christmas. As for the flip I have 2 1ton chain blocks and the rafters of the shed will take the load and rather fortunately are in exact the...
