This old bird was built over a decade ago now, but I treated it to a new pair of wheels today.
Reminded me that I still haven't produced my model for this cook-up  Undecided

Russ, its never to late.
The deadline is dead Wink so just start it now.
Maybe it inspires other participants to finish their bostonians.

I agree, I need a kick in the tail to get my little job back into the air.  Go for it.  snort3

This cookup was very successful. A lot of finished planes and a lot of fun building and following your others builds was great. I am very happy about it. It started exactly one year ago and every plane finished on top of the already finished ones is cream on the top of it.
So lets finish some more if you find some time.

I've finally vac-formed front and rear bubble and windscreen for Fatty. I will add some framing - strips of tissue or paper that will hopefully finish them off nicely. I am still missing the gun turret on top of the fuselage and a couple of roundels. And I need to see a pair of gun barrels sticking out the rear gun turret as well...

Ah. Not tried it yet...I have just got it out of it's box and had a look at it. Mechanism still works despite the neglect but I think I need to make some more serious props. You have guilted me into putting this back on the work bench...

Just been building another Bostonian. Not scale-based this time; I just wanted to do something easy and quick so as to have a Bostonian rules model which might fly a bit better than The Chub. No curves on this one so I'm calling it 'Boxy Lady'.
Almost ready for covering.

You could have tried it today at Impington!

I did a bit of timing for a first time entrant ... he won first time
(With a higher score by a fair margin than I have previously won with!)

I did consider it, Russ. It'll get its first outing at Clayton Green next Saturday though.

Been a bit too busy to get away flying lately as we've just moved my mother-in-law up to live near us (from Taunton) and there are a million things to sort out for her. Might try and get to the next Impington though. Would that be Spring?

Yes, Chris Strachan announced the date in March ... but I would check on their website (which I have only recently noticed, has a great newsletter these days!)

Does the Clayton club allow outsiders? ... I've noticed these before ... but I hear that it is grim up north ;-)

Hope that things go well with the move

Yes, anyone can turn up and join in. Probably need BMFA insurance or similar. £10 for the afternoon (I think) and a different comp each month, or just fly for fun, trim models etc. It's a fair size hall and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Clayton is not really a club in the true sense I don't think because although there is a small committee who organise things very well, there's no official membership list or subscription. Certainly worth a trip over the Pennines two or three times a year for me!

Tim Horne kindly took this video at Clayton yesterday and has posted the link on SFA, but I don't think he'll mind it going here too:

Not 100% trimmed out by any means, but not too bad for its first time out.

Looks great Pete, perhaps a smidge of down thrust will sort her out?

Thanks chaps. Motor was a loop of 1/8 maybe two and a half times the peg to hook distance.

Looks like it will still climb well on a thinner motor  Smiley
