Re: Thank you and sadly goodbye.....

Martin, all the best for you and a lot of respect for your decision! I am curious, may I ask for your age? Because being almost 30 years old I would probably not have the "far-sightedness" to do such a step after that amount of money and time.. Maybe I am too selfish for that :roll: Greets and happ...

Re: Inertial Starter

As far as I understand this is as realistic as it'll get. What is modeled here is a direct drive inertia starter where the starter motor drives the flywheel that is already connected to the crankshaft. So no clutch to be engaged as in the P-40 or the B-17 for example. Whereas with the direct drive ...

Very informative. Thank you.

Sold to Euroworld Ltd as G-BGGR on the 17/01/1979 it was soon sold to Germany 3 months later. I'm sure it went direct from Portuga...

Re: G-CHIA

Re: Awesome review

Very good indeed. Noted a few items that I hadn't noticed on the external model and I was the 2nd Consultant to the project. Makes me very proud indeed to be part of the Development of the T-6.
