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!

There is movement at the Hangar.

I've got around to sorting out a few photos and even made some progress on the work bench - as I mentioned in the last post - Gotta make room for that Vintage Kalt Space Baron which will arrive very soon. So I started by digging out some projects that have been gathering dust at the back of the hangar - I dusted them off - ignored the accusing looks - have you ever been giving an accusing look by a model project you have abandoned for months??? - brutal isn't it !!!

Any way - The Bird of Time was at the front of said accusing pile so I had a look at the wing panels - then I went away - had a cup of coffee and a smoke and came back to face my accuser. Result - I've finished the outer wing panels and started to cut back the inner panels and assess the damage - Photos of progress are on the Bird of Time page. Next is the the Wirraway conversion - coming soon.
