I was distracted by an Imperial AT-ST Grin  Bandai 1/48.  Yes I know, not airplane related but it does have one of the best pilots ever!  Smiley

We attended the BMFA Dinner last night  Very surprised and pleased to find Stan Mauger had travelled from New Zealand to lay his hands (briefly) on the Superscale Trophy which he won at the Nationals!
Other FF scale winners here, from L to R are  3 Gareth Tilston (electric/CO2) 4 Stan  5 Mike Stuart (Indoor Rubber and Coates trophy) and 6 Andy Sephton (Outdoor rubber)

PS the lady with Stan, handing out the gongs, is the wife of the main speaker, who has built a full size Bristol Scout. I meant to corner him and ask if he had any insight on why model Scouts never take off!

Yes, MKelly, I also was grabbed by the beauty of that Navion framework! Shame to cover it up...

This morning, here in 'East Calif.', the fog was thick as soup. I opened the box from RC Specialties, (drop-shipped directly from SIG) their beautiful Monocoupe, 24" W.S., maybe electric? Maybe, but probably rubber...

Is Diels still in business?  That Navion really has ahold of me!

SparrowHawk progressing. Mounted the tail plane on using bamboo skewer dowels made them about 1mm dia x 5mm. Feels nice and sturdy. More covering to do now

My Joulebox 190 E36/F1S flies well. Just making sure the new one mirrors the first. Looks like it matches. The wing will be a bit stiffer to handle the extra speed of the 7x6 folder. At least that’s the hope!

I'm preparing to cover the wings of my Joulebox E36 with tissue over mylar..  I like printing all the numbers and other fun stuff right onto the tissue before I apply it to the mylar. We have a new printer since the last time I printed on tissue so I made a practice run.  I use a repositionable spray adhesive to lightly attach the tissue to regular bond paper.  I bought a can of loctitie spray that says its repositionable. It is but it's to sticky.  The printing worked on the tissue but I will pick up a lot tack reposinatoble spray later today.

The fun part of using MS Word or publisher is all the graphic effects you can use. I tried a reflection and it came out okay.  I always print the numbers as a mirror image and then apply the tissue as normal with the printed side down so that the text looks normal.  I've never had any issue with the toner bleeding or running.

Finished covering the wing on my Reginald Denny Starling. Now to let stuff rest so the glue is dry before shrinking the entire covered fuselage and wing. Looks nice to me but still not ready to take its snapshot.
