What's It all About ???

This page is all about the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft. It's a highly diversified hobby that takes in as many skills as you like to use. Everything from electronics to carpentry, to painting, to drawing and designing with a little bit of metal work thrown in. Some builders even go into doing their own machining, pattern designing, fibre glassing, moulding and engine design. You can use electric motors, 2 stroke or 4 stroke internal combustion engines or even minature turbine (jet) engines for power. My own models use 2 and 4 stroke internal combustion engines and range in size from about a metre in wingspan to well over 3 metres from tip to tip!

Week 30/09/12 to 6/10/12

Bear with me folks - the CD with all the recovered photos arrived in this mornings post and I'm just going through them to sort out what to put in the blog. I'm slowly recovering from the Surgeons knife and I'm beginning to get around a little better now so there will soon be a whole swag of new information and photos.

As soon as I clear up the backlog I'll start the new projects - Guess what the next one is? - Clue? - OK - It's twin engined - a scale WWII Bomber and was manufactured in the United States. The Royal Australian Air Force used a small number late in the war.

First off though I have to finish off the following: -

1. The Lanzo Bomber: - Currently the fuselage and Tail Feathers are done - wing to do.
2. The Wittman Tailwind: - Currently almost finished framing it all - covering and detail to come.
3. The BIG Lazy Bee: - Umm - dragging my heals a bit on this one - Fuselage 3/4 done - 
4. The Lancaster: - Fully Framed up - A lot of work to do on the fitting out
5. The Texan to Wirraway conversion: - Progressing - Rebuilding the fuselage
6. The Fournier RF4: - This one ended up in the back of the hanger for a while - dragged it out recently and building the wing.

Photos of all 6 projects will be -posted in the next week or so.

The Senior Telemaster is still waiting for suitable weather for it's maiden but I have photos of the finished model to post. The Asso Champion is also finished and waiting for it's maiden.
