I agree, should have done it years ago. Lol.

Aura 650 by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Thank you Doug, I'll pass the info on to my friend.

Aura 650 by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Does anyone know how to change the switch on the Aura 650 please? I'm asking for a friend who does not have internet. He is having trouble with the electrics, and we come to the conclusion, that it is the switch that is at fault. Thanking you in anticipation. Ken.

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Your soldering looks a lot better than mine Alan. Well done. As the saying goes,," practice makes perfect ". That's probably my downfall, I only solder when I have too. Cheers for now Ken

Soldering 1/12 Scale Brass Railings by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi, if you look on u tube, you will find lots of videos of how to solder, the thing is,, they make it look so easy! I couldn't solder for toffee, until a visit to utube. Have a look, you will be surprised. Cheers Ken

Hi all, unable to attend, South Wales Model Yacht Club. But I hope it is a successful event. Cheers for now. Ken

Individual Insurance by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi , B.M.F.A. Do do a single person insurance scheme. I think it's called country member. Through them you are covered for all Model activities. I know it's predominantly for flying but if you do not fly the cost is cheaper. Worth while giving them a telephone call to find out the details.They are very good at explaining things to you, and make it easy to understand. Hope this info is of use to you.cheers, ken.

Which Glue by KenThompson Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
HI Cormerant, I use a black felt tip pen on the edge of my planking to give the impression of corking, looks good and effective. Just roll the felt tip along the edge, easy to do. Hope this is useful to you. Ken
