My Mini Ol Blue is about ready for assembly. Needs a tank to complete, usually no problem but Ive decided that it should have a fast fill valve. Not that it'll ever race but there are correct ways to do things.

Time will tell if I can make a valve.....

It looks neat Greggles. They must be little beasties! Do you make or buy your fast fill valves? What ever happened eventually to your Roadrunner?

Thanks John, it's been a fun little build, for a basket case car engine that seems to go pretty well.

I intend to make the fast fill, using one of Robin Hiern's as a guide. I mangled one on the lathe yesterday, so try try again.

The Roadrunner is alive and well if resting in the shed. I took it out for a fly before Christmas, sadly the flaps had lost their alignment and outside maneuvers were simply scary.  So a bit more resting and it'll be time to get off the wall.

After a bit of rest and other activities the Ol Blue managed to assemble itself.

Fuel fast fill completed, but not tested. Tank still to be made.

Engine is OS Max 12CV, looks a bit big for this model.

May have to downsize later, but there is plenty of time to consider that.

Trouble is a shortage of hot 1.5s
