|CeePee and Mini-Blade Carbon|
|Mini-Blade and Valkyrie|
The Valkyrie went well, but it was trying my patience when rigging. It's probably 2+ years since I'd flown her last, and I'd forgotten just how fiddly the assembly is - she might visit the workshop soon for some mods!
The new CeePee...well, it was blustery. I managed to push her away from the slope and enjoyed the responsiveness and speed across slope, as well as a few simple aeros. Alas, the blustery bumpiness took its toll, and she was rolled over close-in on a pass that I couldn't recover from. The fuselage took a big crack nearly around it's circumference, ending it's day. All repaired now, just need to add some black solarfilm over the repair.
Onto new stuff, then.
I've committed to a 150% Jet Provost build, which should be a great size for the slope, and have already modelled some cockpit parts.
I've drawn up a 56" Gloster Meteor (Meatbox) F4 plan that I'll be getting laser cut shortly.
And I've started build on something else - another "century series" fighter, that Matt Jones and I are building one off each.
More to follow!
