Cool! I know the Terrier. I have an almost finished Pushy Cat with a GM300 Twin, but it kicks and spits on the 7" prop necessary for clearance. I need to find a REALLY heavy prop. I meant 20 years in the previous post, too...!

Cheers,

Dan.

Dan,
       The Jodel flying surfaces are done as are the various sub assemblies. I hope to do the fuselage today. It was back to the cold on Wednesday. I have found the spitting back on small props is sometimes due to a too high a throttle setting especially with light props. I hope this not telling grandpa to suck eggs! (figuratively speaking)

Ricky, the prop supplied with the 300 twin is something like 9" with large blade area. The Pushy Cat only has clearance for a 7". I've tried a couple of 3 bladers, but not enough of a load. Something like the heavy grey nylon Graupner may work, but I've not found one yet!

One set of struts done for the Cub, but I'm off to RIAT at Fairford tomorrow to get sunburnt and deafened by jet exhaust, so no progress tomorrow...

Cheers,

Dan.

Done! One more coat of paint needed on struts; but that's it. 112.7g All up, which I am very, very pleased with for a 36" Cub with a GM300.

Cheers,

Dan.

Thanks all! Just doing the boring task of making a transport box up whilst the last paint dries. Next up is a quick Ray Malmstrom model for my Club's Fun Fly next month; after that, I'm not sure...

Cheers,

Dan.

The Arrowair, I think. Given my obsession with CO2 and the fact that it was his only published CO2 design, I just have to!

Cheers,

Lovely Cub, Dan. A real beauty of a model.
I like the look of your club's fun fly with the Ray Malmstrom event too. Could've brought my Hollandair Libel, but unfortunately I'm away that weekend.

Cheers Pete! The Fun Fly last year was great, but I didn't get my Pushy Cat for the Smeed event finished in time (It's still not!) so I was determined to do a RM model this year. The Sunday last year was dead calm all day. I hope it's as good this year.

Cheers,

Dan.
