PSS in the UK: Photos from 27th June 2004

Guys,

The Ribble Valley Model Soaring Association has published a bunch of images from a UK PSS gathering this past June. Unfortunately they're not all captioned, nor are there photos of all the models present, but it's great stuff nonetheless. Here's the link... Enjoy! http://www.rvmsa.co.uk/pssjune/index.htm

And awww heck, here's a lil' tidbit...an awesome North American FJ-4 Fury!



I believe this is the model developed by Terry Lidstone, as described on the UK PSS website's Designer's Tips page: http://www.pssaonline.co.uk/designer...20Lidstone.htm

Via Google just now, I see that this model is perhaps the same design later apparently published in the July issue of Quiet Flight? The plan image doesn't come up when I click on it; anyhow, it's all news to me. Dang that model, she sizzles! http://www.kionapublishing.com/catal...roducts_id=985

Very nice event, and some really beautiful PSS planes. I am so jealous of the flight area too! Man... if we had that kind of grass landing area, it would be cool!

Thanks so much for sharing your pictures.

Some More PSS UK Pictures

I was at Woodspring on the Saturday and due to the 30MPH gusts the Antonov didn't fly but i was able to see it the following week at the Cosford LMA show

Antonov and C17 Globe Master and ME 262 at Cosford

We did get to see the Antonov fly but can you believe that this plane was dwarfed by the really large turbine powered models

If you mean the C17 That is powered by 4 Jetcat Turbines. I just thought you guys would be interested if you liked the Antonov.
There is no reason that it could not be a PSS model apart from the crowd needed to launch it. It is about 6ft 2inches from the ground to the top of the fin. I think there is a fairly large PSS one around..I'll see if I can find some pics. I really like the big ME 262. this one is turbine powered...this is a very popular PSS subject. Imagine one that big on the slope..its 1/2 scale!

Antonov and B-52

Here you see the Antonov and B-52 shown above after being aero-towed aloft. This was taken by a guy from Bumpygreen.co.uk on the Sunday of the show when the weather was better.
The DC-3 is full size from the Battle of Britain Fight. This also didn't fly on the Saturday due to the bad weather. I'm so fed up that I missed it....this will be my next PSS subject and I really would use the word awesome to describe it!

Colin, I thought you might particularly enjoy this terrific build-thread on a "Dak":

http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/...858&PN=1&TPN=1

It's not PSS (it's a gassie), but much is relevant construction-wise, and what the heck...all the awesome Dakota/C-47/DC-3 eye-candy in that thread cain't hurt nobody nowheres! ;-) The guys have really put a lot of care into this one, and it shows.

Here's a tidbit from their most recent progress:

http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/forum/...858&PN=1&TPN=6

Happy modelling,
John
