Thanks! :cheers:

Bringing home some bargins today from a simple grocery trip, three books and a kit. :mellow:



Not being into these type of kits I'll be looking to do a swap with aircraft kit/s sometime soon. It is all there and in it's sealed bags. :lol:

Sort of back for a little while now the SNAFU has eased, I have retrieved my plastic model kits back from storage again, first projects I'll tend to will be finishing the Polikarpov's and the Electrajet.

Good to see you back Brad F.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

I have mentioned somewhere around here that I have no interest in what the public call "Drones", that still stands but I stumbled onto this very cheap quadrotor (I refuse to call it a drone as it's fully manual controlled :P ) that I noticed used the same size coreless motors that I use with my micro sized radio gear for small planes so I brought one intending to simply break it down for parts, it flies very well though and so I cannot bring myself to do so yet, although I have removed all but one of the LED's from it. :rolleyes:



I then remembered a picture from a book that I had as a youngster that also appeared on this site somewhere of a 4 fan hovering attack craft for the U.S.Army, don't know what it's called but I intend to build something similar using the quadcopter as a basis. :thumbsup:

And as a added bonus when I removed the LED's I put aside the clear covers as I think they will be very useful for plastic models, 4 canopies and a astro-dome. ;D :thumbsup:

(they look much better than in the pic, I should have a better camera to use by the end of the week.)

I have been taking pic's of my building efforts but still no good camera to use so I'll put some up later on. The Electrajet has been smoothed out and is all over white again, bottom wing rigging is done on the I-153, wing panels from the Boomerang II have been cleaned up ready for reuse and I have been putting a little something together from my small parts stash. :mellow:

The 4 fan VTOL model from the quadcopter idea was a little premature, I emptied all the equipment out of it's shell and put it on a basic carbon rod frame and it's load carrying ability is tiny above the weight of the needed bit's, a larger quadcopter or a my own set up will be needed if I want to continue with it.

Here is where I'm at with my scrap part's model, a single seat Texan thing inspired by the NA-50 and CA-13. Being made from two old assembled models and some donor part's.

I can't identify any of those parts although the shape of the vertical tail is naggingly familiar.

Whilst I can't identify the parts it does remind me of a CAC Boomerang. Nice work

Harvard tail and wings, the clue is in the '....single seat Texan thing.....' bit.  ;D ;)
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! :)

Airfix T-6G wing panels, tail group and engine mounting. Rather heavily reshaped Airfix Fw190D fuselage section.
