Some more Hog bits

Here's a few more pictures of the A10, taken by various people (I know for sure Dave Gilder, maybe Phil Cooke, certainly Shona Meade) from the Orme PSSA meet.

Sea Hawk part deux

Here is the plan as aforementioned (for some reason it wouldn't upload) :

I have printed the crutch parts and formers, so now to mount them on lite-ply, and the build can commence :)

Another new PSS machine? Oh ok...

So this is what I'm planning next - a Hawker Sea Hawk :

 My plan is a model that will have removable wings, the first set of which will be cut from foam, to scale (as in no stretching).  The model will have a 1200mm span, have a built-up fuselage (lots of planking - yes!), ailerons / elevator / rudder / flaps.

I am planning to then do a slightly stretched wing for lighter wind days, and that will be built-up, and maybe not have the inboard flaps (for overall lightness).

The receiver, battery, and two servos will be housed under a removable canopy hatch area, leaving the rest of the fuselage one-piece and STRONG.

I will have to form my own canopy, but I can't see that being a huge obstacle.

I will update with a view of the plan I've drawn so far in a minute.

Might get there soon...

It's been a while since my last posting, but I'm planning on doing more things here, like build blogs and so on.  So for now, here's a picture of my A10 from the Orme, where it didn't fly!
