MDF does act like a sponge, but I would expect it to act the same with sanding sealer or fibreglass resin, don't discount it too soon👍 Cheers Wayne

3D printing by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 6 days ago
It's taken a while to print, I've just finished glueing it together. It's just over 600mm long x 450mm wide & weighs 350g in its current state. What do you all think? I've got a brushed Venti 600 motor to go in it, I'll try & get it mounted tomorrow. Cheers Wayne

Should I be flattered lol Cheers Wayne

Donald, a new approach by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 15 days ago
Here he is finished enjoying a tab with me in the back yard. I'm not going to use the face, well I don't think so but the helmet is spot on for my needs. High resolution version next weekend it is then👍 Cheers Wayne

Donald, a new approach by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 15 days ago
I found a 1/6 scale pilot on Thingiverse, a little bit of jiggers-pokery later & here is a low resolution head being printed at 1/4.2 scale. It's not looking too shabby. Think I'll do a high resolution version next weekend👍 Cheers Wayne

Hi Nick, As basic as this sounds I got a switch that you plug into a channel on the rx to control lights or just about anything remotely. I've also got a sound module with 2 speakers from eBay that you load the sound onto a microSD card which I find amusing, this also plugs into a rx channel. Animatronics is new to me, I'm learning slowly, my 1/4 scale Donald Campbell should scare a few people. I'm also dabbling with 3D printed linear actuators at the moment, I'm up to 130mm of travel from a normal servo. Ohhh the entertainment 🤗 Cheers Wayne

The electrics, drive & radio by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 17 days ago
Thanks for the link to the clips, I've ordered 3 sets, I like a bit of stock👍 Cheers Wayne

The electrics, drive & radio by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 17 days ago
Omg, what a quality job!!! A credit to you sir👍 Out of interest, where did you source the spring clips from? Cheers Wayne

Proceedings so far by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 19 days ago
It's a 2 part epoxy putty that's workable for 30 mins or so then dries rock hard after 24 hours, apparently it even dries under water. It's really handy for making those hard to find parts👍 Just about all model shops stock it. Sorry for the messy bench, I'm having a busy afternoon lol Cheers Wayne

Hi Alan, I encountered loads of problems trying to find scale steering wheels for my 1/12 & 1/4 scale Bluebird K7's, I ended up having to make them, take a look at my build log for details. Cheers Wayne

a very noisy fireboat by Midlife306 Captain   Posted: 22 days ago
That's brilliant, I'd get the exhaust checked though as it sounds like an MOT failure to me👍 Cheers Wayne
