Nice Veronite. My Veronite No.1 is a great flyer so it will be interesting to see how this one goes.

Thanks! With the weather so foul here I don't know when I will getto trim and fly it. I do have plans to make the No. 1 as it is a handsome looking plane. I'll be doing the No. 5 first as I already have the plan from Colin Smith but since I have it ready to go and quite like to do laser cut kits when I can afford them ( this one was a swap for some surplus tools so functionally cost me nowt ) I will be doing a Replikit KK Contestor next. I have the first part of the plan taped down under grease proof paper already and got the balsa strip and 14 gauge piano wire I needed this PM so will be starting it Sunday. It's huge by my standards and i don't know where I'll fly it but what the heck!

Is that some sort of razor guillotine in the foreground, Tom? I like that idea.....

Thanks for the link.... but @$45, I think I'll stick to a razor blade and then sanding block to get the cut straight!!!

Too true, if it hadn't been a swap for a bit of militaria i had spare I wouldnt have got it even back then when it was 30 odd bucks. I thought of doing something with Mecanno but my mate offered the Chopper and I'm a sucker for gadgets! It will be a building jig when I can find a way of getting one as a swap rather than forking out real actual money!

Make your own Tom - see http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ht=fuselag+jig

Cheap, cheerful and effective! Needn't be this big for the size of models you normally build.
