Doug .Re which one (other tenor/s ) they were few and far between and came and went . I was always welcomed to any opera company or choir I went to. Hence ( THE ) ONE TENOR The Marine lake is like Rhyl's. Useable as long as no other users. Wadeable but watch out for debris and broken glass etc. Don't go in barefoot. In fact that is good advice on any water. People seem to delight in throwing rubbish into any stretch of water. Idiots.👍
I agree it is very satisfying to work by hand.However having said that I have accrued a number of tools either because they were too cheap to miss or even free,but often setting them up for just one job is not worth it and I do the job by hand instead. Perverse Aren't I?👍
Nitro Glycerine is made by the action of Nitric acid on Glycerine. I'm pretty sure adding Nitromethane to Glycerine won't create an explosive compound.I could be wrong of course so I'll put my tin hat on and get into me trench. In fact if it creates an explosive the best place to be Eh?👍
Try polishing the varnish once it is good and hard. Use a good polishing compound as used on cars and plenty of water don't use an angle grinder they're too fast and will burn the varnish.You might be able to sort out something using a Dremel type tool, but again not too fast, to get into the smaller spaces on deck etc. It is possible to do it by hand but takes longer.Done properly you get a finish like glass. A lot of car painters rub down wet first with very fine paper then do the polishing. Go to a car painters and watch them and ask them to show you what they use.Really educational. You could learn lots. Cheers John .
Yes Doug we will get slapped wrists.Good point about reloading and I' ve got a domed 50b but I left it dirty after the last run .Combined with a bit of damp and the hole has corroded away round half the circumference.I'll try that Free Flight supplies shop. Tried getting onto Jetex forum but had to send E mail asking how. No form evident on site . With apologies to the mods for the Hi -Jack . If you need to say more go on chit chat or something. Cheers John Have a few forXXX me 👍
Aye there's the rub Doug.Wilmot and Mansour kept the exact fuel formula secret I believe . However it should be easy to find it with modern science techniques. But after the initial rush of nostalgia purchases from the likes of us would there be a market for them.I did the all sheet Hunter and painted it grey and put roundels and letter transfers on it. Did fly but had a glide like a landing swan.A semi controlled crash would be a good description of it. Which one did you put on 2 Mtr span gliders.100/ Scorpion I know one thing Doug .You and I should never meet 'cause we would spend all out time nattering. I think😁👍 Regards John .P.S. Can you get ether there from where you can get the meths ?
I wish someone would do Jetex again I loved them. Specially on little flat plate jet boats I used to make with balsa sheet. Real skimmers they were .👍 Yes Doug I remember them and a bigger posher version that sat in the hearth or in the actual fireplace with a sack stuffed up the flue to stop heat losses up the chimney. A bowl fire I think they were called and I don't think they were pumped up
Nice one Doug. Can you get Ether there as well. Pop Pop boats Dave ! Blimey that takes me back I had a friend whose older brother brought some back from Germany when I was a kid. He blew one up trying Lighter fuel in it.Frightened the life out of Elaine .She was the friend BTW.👍😁
It's really a case of suck it and see .Experiment is my mantra for stuff like this.Just try it and see what the results are. You could ask the aero bods on say Aeromodeller or RCME ( Flying Models ) forums of a number of others.👍
As a footnote the Meths I use is usually Bartoline brand This page of contacts is full of info about a number of "SPIRITS" Click on and see iF ANY use to you.👍 Travis Perkins and other trade suppliers stock it in 500 ml, Ltr and up to 5Ltr sizes I'm told🤓
Two questions peeps. How do I delete old messages please. And I have received notifications saying someone likes my post and to view on line but I don't know who from and can't find them when I go on the forum. Could there be a way of saying who it is liking my post or in connection with which thread.? Cheers John O/T👍😊P.S. this is over last few days.
My SCUBA tanks got left behind when we moved and I couldn't get back for it as our old house was boarded up in 15 mins after we left and we are an hour plus away . It was old but it worked fine . I could have cried but likely as not it would have gone anyway when I got back.
