Me too! We'll be queueing up for the honour of catching duty for this one. It looks superb, Tim! A real gem of a model. Looks like it wants to fly too.

(I'm a bit worried though- you seem to have accidentally given yourself a whole month to make the scale prop, and I'm sure there's something in the rules that says that can only be done the night before the contest.)

I bet you he will find something else to do. Last minute work is guaranteed, it is even mandatory.

He has to present the judges with a picture of the model on a newspaper of 8.11 (if not the 9.11), in unfinished state and present it life with the details done. Or he loses a lot of points!

The difficulty now is deciding which details are necessary, which are unnecessary but desirable and which are really best ignored!
Ahhh....  You mean you've left some detail off?  I don't believe you. Smiley

Lovely piece of work.

Thanks all for the kind words. All offers of assistance with catching duties gratefully accepted Smiley. It will be needed Shocked

I keep finding things which I had previously overlooked. It's amazing how many bits were sticking out all over these old crates! The drag must have been horrendous Shocked.
So yes, there are lots of bits left off. A wind driven generator and a wind driven oil pump for starters!

Don't worry George, I will make a box but it won't be as beautiful as your DH9 box Grin.

Very nice.

I hope it flies as well as it looks and does not try to argue with the walls, table legs and so on.

Very atmospheric Tim. The UC bungee looks neat as does the rigging and all that detail. Good luck with the trimming and contest flights.

Well I wouldn't call this finished but this is how it's going to Nijmegen. There are lots of details I would like to add but I ran out of oomph. If it flies and if it comes home from Nijmegen in (more or less) one piece then I can tinker a bit more before the NW Gala and then the Nats next year.

That looks superb Tim.  It is dead calm just 5 miles from you now.  I would be tempted to try it over grass before even trying to trim it indoors.  Best of luck with it.

You done this sort of thing before, haven't you?  Smiley

That's a cracking model.
