Yes Bill, the Tiggie flew happily all day at the NCMAC bash last August. GM63 in mine, so a Telco would be ideal too.

Cheers,

Dan

I also found some time to go on with my Tiger build over the weekend. Pics are coming...
The fuselage is mostly done, but wire bending is still pending...
I dont think that I will sand much wood away in the back. What I noticed, the rear peck is quite close to the CG and not far in the back as often seen in kits. So rubber doesnt add much weight behind the CG...

Here are the pics...
Still a lot to do... I fill the gaps in the front of the fuselage with light balsa, I never tried the paper sheeting...
After the sanding it should look o.k.

It's quiet here... I assume everybody is building and has no time to post progress.

I did a big part of sanding today. Started with the undercarriage and did some work at the tank.
It is coming along nicely and I am looking forward to see it in the air.
I hope to start with the covering soon.
Most likely, I will take the yellow colour scheme as suggested on the package.

Fear not!  We're approaching the end of the fishing season and the start of my building season.  Cessna ordered and I'm browsing the web for an interesting colour scheme.

Good to hear that I am not alone Roll Eyes

I am quite busy at work, but in the meantime the wings are covered and sprayed with silver colour.
Next part is to join them with the tank in the middle of the upper wing.

Looking lovely Roman!

My own effort, the pink version of the Spit which has its own build thread, is also now coming on again after the runctions of the Easter holidays.

We all ought to at least finish our own models faster than our Andrew can design AND prototype new ones for the VMC!  Shocked

Some lettering was done over the last weekend.
I am thinking about carving a pilot for this model.
Therefore I already printed out a picture with a pilot in the cockpit to check the size.

Oh, how stupid I am.... Roll Eyes
I just saw that the letters on the fuselage are white on the full scale G-ADEN.....
It seems that I have to change that.

Don, I attached it with the uhu gluestick.
Therefore it is no problem to remove the black letters and replace them with white ones.
I only have to add some water with the brush.

Mefot, at the moment I have no idea about the weight. I can check it.

Made a bit of progress today and started the fuselage. It will soon be time to decide on a colour scheme. I'm not sure what that will be yet,but I know it won't be black,white,or pink !!! Grin

Hows your Spit coming on?  Smiley

Wing panels are built but not joined yet. Fuselage is built and nose planked but not yet sanded. Stab and fin also built. Building stopped and everything packed away when a house move took priority. Unfortunately the move hasn't happened yet so everything is in limbo. The move has been ongoing for three months now but due to various technicalities keeps getting delayed !!! Luckily I am very patient  Cheesy
I might just break it out of it's box at the weekend and do some therapeutic sanding !!!

Sorry to hear about the bother with the house move, but yes break open the box of Spit bits!

I can just about see the final furlong on mine, and have a long weekend ahead, mostly at home, mostly alone and keen to get it done!

Some building this weekend. Next weekend also looks promising:-)
The letter colour is fixed.
I put all the parts in the picture above on my scale and it shows already 20 gram.
Lighter would be better, but I have to live with it.
It looks like something is moving in this cookup. Lookig forward to see your progress.

Hi Chaps,

FYI.  After a conversation with another fellow modeller today I would like to point out that VMC are gradually adding detailed instructions for the "magnificent flying machines" range.  They compliment the existing booklet rather than replace it.  These are freely available pdf's for you to view during your builds.  The SE5 and spitfire are done, I think that the Corsair is next and the others will follow.

Obviously this being a recent development it won't be mentioned in the instructions that may be in your kit.

Here are the two available so far...

https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/supermarine-spitfire-nightfighter.html

https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/mfmSE5Aweb.html

Just click on the "instructions" tab.

I wanted to mention this as I know they have been working pretty hard on them and they are nicely done and you can imagine how long each one takes!

Andrew

Thanks, Andrew. That's excellent- and just in time for me as I'll be starting my SE5 shortly. VMC are really leading the way at the moment with your designs, and the general care and consideration being put into pleasing their customers. Long may they continue!

Love the Tiger Moth, Roman. Your models always have such style!

Over this long weekend with very nice weather, I built on the tiny bits of my Tiger Moth.
The struts and wheel cover are nearly ready and I also found a pilot who would fit in the cockpit.
I already wanted to carve a new one, when I found out, that I have an unemployed pilot from my old chilton.
He seems to feel happy in his new cockpit.
Next will be the instruments for the cockpit.

When I moved once about 15 - 20 years ago I had to dismantle all my model stuff and pack it into off site storage.  After about 1 mo. I stopped and asked my Doctor for a scalpel so I could do something at least while I waited.  It was 3 more months before we moved and the new house was still not done.  We actually lived in what was to become my model room in the new house for a further 3 months before the new house was finally completed.
