I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

The BUFF

Post by Tim on Mon Nov 07, 2011 2:42 pm

As some may know, I am doing the smaller version ( 11 foot span ) B52 glider from the Simon Cocker plan. A few people expressed interest - some time back - in doing one also, and so far Zaidy is the only one who has committed ( avoid obvious jokes here please ).
We have decided - ( well I have really LOL ) to have the wings done by "foamwings" in Scotland, as they will do a better job than I can, and they incorporate the steel joiners, carbon spars, and glasscloth reinforcement to T/Es etc - PLUS the skinning is vac bagged too.
SO - does anyone else want to commit to building one, as the more wing panels we order the cheaper it gets.
Im just waiting for a final price from Barry @ foamwings,\and Im also just about to buy the foam panels for the fus and tail, which Richie has kindly offered to cut on his sooperdooper laser machine - and again, if more people are building one, the foam gets cheaper.
So... I'll wait a few days more to see if theres any more interest before I hit the buy button. Post here, or PM / email me

for info. the foam is to be cut on a 4 axis cutter not a laser

What are the obvious jokes about Zaidy & bombers then

B52 model gliders I meant, not bombers

Thanks for that correction Richie - I thought it was a 4 axis laser cutter.

What and when would be the cost (or best estimate) Tim?

I did express an interest but had envisages a scratch build however this might be a better bet. Certainly easier

Approx £200 a pair - but we cut out the control surfaces and face off as required.

Ok, I have reached a final price with Barry@foamwings, ( £210 ) and as hes quite busy, Im keen to finalize my order with him so we can have them before the new year.
Final call to all BUFF builders.

Lol no he hasn't. It unfortunate that Jem used pink as a way to express his sexual orientation. I guess its time for him to come out.

Was anyone else looking at this thread hoping there was going to be pictures of Billie Piper? No? just me then?!

I'd love to join in on this one, but unfortunately I am now officially poor for the next few years having bought a new house. I can't wait to see the build progress on here though Wink

I know...Gary tipped me off earlier.
However, apparently this model has more than its share of problems.
1) The fus is bent
2) The fixed tailplanes are undersize
3) Its like me - grossly overweight
4) The wings are warped.

Well, thats what I think anyway. Crying or Very sad

LOL- Zaidy already has one in his hangar Very Happy
Incidentally, its progressing pretty well on schedule. Got the wing to sort out - cutting the wingseat slots etc, and then control surfaces to cut out and face off, hinge, servo install etc, and then finish off the nose area, and fit the engine pylons and wing tanks etc. Then when all the glassing is finished, its down to Marty to advise on the painting.My build thread if anyones wants to follow along is below
Heres where I'm up to, and Zaidy is also doing well too Very Happy [img][/img]
