Re: Funniest thing on the internet this year!

A British friend of mine, after 5 weeks quarantined with his wife, told me that he was pretty sure that with three wives and five years not being able to leave the same house, Osma Bin Laden had probably called the SEALs himself!

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

A good roundup of the overall progress so far. What it doesn't show is the hundreds and hundreds of hours of research and Coreldraw drawing that have gone into the project. I have been stunned by the amount of research I've still had to to, even after 40 odd years of general Spitfire research and th...

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

Thanks Lewis, Yes Chris is the very same "yoke man". Building a IIb ASR (or IIC if you prefer). The paint is a good match for post Spitfire I aircraft. It is called Pale Eucalypt. A little dark perhaps unless in glaring sunlight. It fits well with "worn" looks. Unfortunately I can't use it for K9817...

Re: Proud Dad

I know what you mean. I had my first proper (Pub) beer at 12 in Leonora in the front bar. Dad didn't seem too concerned about being arrested. But then again, the local Police Sergeant was sitting next to us.

Proud Dad

I can't help but admire proud fathers. I went with a younger mate when he took his son out to the pub for his first beer this week. Quite a landmark for an Aussie! We bought a round of 40 Lashes but the son didn't like it much, so dad drank it. We tried Carlton Black but again, the son didn't like i...

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

Now THIS was a nasty little piece to build. The pattern is quite complex to cut out and file to clean straight (with a few curved edges) The tight area (finished dimensions are around 5 x 6 x 2 inches) means that the large hole can not be flanged once the sides are bent. This makes it hard to secure...

Re: Spitfire K9817 Build

A good weekend and a day off and some progress on MY stuff finally. Firstly, my hydraulic punch and swage die set arrived and that gave me the opportunity to clean up and fix the hole saw/wooden die swages on Frame 8. The set is easy to use and makes perfect holes and flanges every time. A very wort...

Re: OVERHEATING AT JFK. PLS HELP!!!!!!!!

If you have to taxi long distances you can keep the speed up (not really advisable on the ground!) taxi with short bursts of power and a longer idle (again, not really advisable) and spend as much time as possible taxiing into wind. Apart from that small airfields are the way to go. With the early S...
