Leeper, what Design Master floral spray colors do you use mostly? I ordered a couple of bottles years ago, but I thought they wasn't as visible as I want them to be. It's hard to tell the actual color on a wing just by looking at a spray can...  Undecided I see that you have some good red color sometimes, that looks good. You also have a couple of birds with black as I record from you visited us here in Sweden, but what is that color named?

Simplicate & add more lightness. Keep sanding!

Hi Fido!

Good to see you here & 'speak' with U via HPA.
I commonly use three reds of Design Master(henceforth DM):
Holiday 714, Carnation 716, Cranberry 713.
Glossy Black 625 has some shine, even when mist-coating.
Glossy White 626 is nice for fin, nose & wing tip, for help to see
against dark side views, like trees & mountains.
The spray can color for me is quite accurate to the actual results.

Hope that helps U.
Ciao,
Leeper

Thank you Lee, I thought the holiday red and thought it was nice. Anyhow, apparently new rules now since last time I ordered. It's not possible to send these can's over Air anymore, it must actually be shipped by boat. So, it's not possible for us in Europe to order Design Master Floral anymore.  Angry

Sad Fido, but not surprised by that law.
Possibly you can locate an equiv @ a crafts or Hobby shop.
There are color concentrates which will mix with thinner for
spraying, if have a hobby spray unit.
If u were here u could have my older one!  Grin

Try to find CREATEX trademark Airbrush colors.
I have Fluorescent Orange. They are based in CT USA.
Not sure how many colors they make, but they must
have website info.
Water based & non-toxic, that product is dilutable in
thinner for airbrush use.

Thanks for that information Jon, I'll have a look!  Smiley

Lee, I do have a bunch of Createx colors. Martin Beast have the gears, I usually go to him when using that stuff. And I like it! I have to buy me a compressor and an airbrush.  Tongue

I'm seriously considering building a 36D but I'm not sure where to look for a half decent tail boom over here (UK). Any thoughts?

Thanks

Jon

Speak with Mick P or Mark B. I know that Mick has bought booms from the USA, and Mark had some specially made for his DLGs.

A readily available alternative would be Mike Woodhouse's E36 boom. It's 8g unsanded for 32" and I would guess circa 5g when you sand and cut to length (remove the fat end). AviaSport Skinny kite spars are about 7g but I've had difficulty in finding a supplier in the UK. Another possible is the Skyshark 2PT, which is about 9g unsanded.

The FFS coupe boom is light, but I've found them to be very flexy.

Happy hunting

Peter
ps Mike is likely to take carbon booms (plus orders) with him to the Nats, so if you are going you can save the postage

Thanks Peter, appreciate the info.
The SkyShark one has been used successfully by Ian M (and Mick gave his approval apparently  Grin)
Ian let me fly his new Butterfly on Friday and I've got the bug  Cool
I have a lovely piece of wood sitting here looking at me too....

The best priced 2PTs I've found were from here: http://www.kitingpoint.eu/product_info.php?pName=skyshark-2pt&mName=skyshark&products_id=859&language=en     I don't know about the shipping charge, but even in the UK it's pretty steep.

The Highwaymen kite store in Hinckley has them at £15 which might be better if you are local and can collect. I bought a job lot of 2PTs from the USA a few years ago for coupes, and in terms of stiffness the Woodhouse E36 boom is equally as good, and lighter. The Aviasport Skinnys have been advertised on Ebay at about a tenner for a 1M long boom. The choice is yours Wink

Thanks Peter. The E36 one sounds good then at a similar price for a one off.

I have a version of the plan (from the Discus Kid site IIRC) but is that the most up to date? Perhaps if Leeper is about?

Cheers

Just wondering whether to invest in a razor plane? Until now I've managed small wings for CLG with chunky sanding blocks...

I third that. My personal favourite is the all metal 'David' plane.
