Bending thin plywood by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 days ago
When I typed that, the little thing on the left said Forum posts: 666, but it no longer does, oddly. People have this thing about the number. And I would say the doctors use the machine that most reliably runs the NHS programme they all use. They have updated the appointments system (with no obvious improvements), but the normal medical files aspect always seems to work very well and they are very good at reminders, etc. compared with my last surgery.

Chinese props by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago
Quote from rcgroups forum- "Yep, beryllium-copper in many racing props, like Octura's. No problem for "scale" brass/bronze props. " Seems only to be a problem for the extreme racing performance guys! Conclusion: Buy European!👍

Chinese props by CB90 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 22 days ago style='background-color:yellow;'>forums/showthread.php?2454547-Metal-vs-Plastic-Props "Downside to metal props is the fact they need to be balanced and sharpened, which is a lot of work and not without health issues due to the beryllium used in some brass alloys. Berillium is highly toxic, read up on the stuff and take the appropriate measures." and style='background-color:yellow;'>forums/showthread.php?1267378-Dangers-of-prop-work. I know you cannot trust all you read on the internet, but better safe than sorry!

A return to the hobby! by Westquay Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 24 days ago
Hi and welcome to the forum. Yup, SLEC are good guys. They're within a pleasant car toodle from me. I have a set of Crash Tender fittings from them since they bought out the Vintage Model Boat Company. Sea Commander is a lovely boat and all the Aerokits are good performers. I have several. Good to see another Chris-Craft builder on here. The world needs more woody fans! Cheers, Martin

Thanks to Bryan The Pirate by neilmc Commander   Posted: 27 days ago
This forum has come up trumps again 😁 Managed to clue up with Bryan the Pirate who lives just over a mile from me. After 2 hours of his time tonight I now know the next step in trying to get my project on the water. Adding together information and help from this forum and a face to face with Bryan I now have no excuse in moving forward. Thanks for tonight Bryan and thanks to the Model Boat.

Hi, I'm afraid there's no way to do this, except in the build blogs. Forum threads are always chronological order with the original post at the top and newest at the bottom. Thanks, Stephen

Exciters/transducers by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Ah! You mean the Forum Threads not the Build Blogs. Strangely blogs are as you want but Threads the other way up. Never bothered me. I just press Ctrl and Pos1 to go to the top or Ctrl and End to go to the bottom of either. Theses as Threads in the appropriate Forum topic please 😁 Doug 😎
