Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

Nice to see you are using real wood in your 2nd model Mark
This is the progress of my barnstormer 72
Just got the radio to fit and the covering to do, then want some warm sunny weather.

Too long Marty
Two months so far, sometimes only half an hour a day in the workshop because it has been so cold and then bringing the model into the house to wait for the glue to dry ( when I am allowed to)
Some wives seem to think the dining room table is for putting meals on, leaving no room for the model !!!!!!
I think I will have plenty of time left to finish the Barnstormer because I will fly it in the warm weather.

Nice One Peter, when my flying has become a little less erratic I'd like something like that! lol
l know what you mean about the table, My wife caught me with my 1100 V twin bike engine patially stripped on ours, she went ballistic! (perhaps I should have had a buxom wench half stipped on the table ....... another time lol) these wifes seem to get upset over really trivial things don't they!

Nice Project Peter, proper model aircraft building. What will you cover it in?
Would be nice in Antique or Cream Solartex and Red or Blue glosstex fus, then we can still see the nice woodwork underneath. I've still got some SMAE Transfers.

I see you've dared to venture indoors with it but this never goes down well here either with "her indoors" for obvious reasons.
At the moment, "the shed" has lost a 20Kg chunk of roofing felt 5m x 1m which went missing during the mighty SW gale on 7th Feb and several existing leaks are now much worse. I've had to bring everything vulnerable into the house to prevent it all getting ruined by the damp and drips.

Mrs PDQ (Dorothea) is not well pleased at all cos the house is now even more cluttered with smelly models, kits, balsa, film, plans engines, magazines and tools everywhere.

I've promised her I will shift a lot of it on and I'm starting to work out what has to go and what I keep.

Fortunately, the house insurance (thanks to encouragement and advice from Tim) has approved the job of stripping and re-covering the whole shed in new roofing felt throughout. So no more leaks for the forseable future. The man is coming on Friday

If Peter's Barnstormer turns up at the field covered in roofing felt, We'll know where it came from!!
