Pemberton-Billing P.B.9...inspiration for fellow builders
« on: April 29, 2016, 02:07:41 am »
So, you all thought it was going to be tricky, managing a build in 7 days.   In the best traditions of TV cookery shows.........Here's one he made earlier!!!......Noel Pemberton-Billing  did one at 12 inch to the foot scale in August 1914.

I can't manage this GB (events, dear boy..as Harold Macmillan said) but I offer this as encouragement to those more skilled than me.

Sudden thought, added later.....Should this really be in the discussion thread? If so, I'm sure that a sympathetic moderator will move it .

He should have contacted Dizzy's grandfather for some help, he'd have done it in only THREE days then!  ;D :lol:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
