Thanks guys, and I am looking forward to getting the MPF .. I will prpbably still use Depron (because its available here in Oz) for most of my builds and save the MPF for shaping and bending etc

I will go with your advice too guys ion the pods for the EDF's but will do the tests with the one I have already made (with the flat front) I guess if it flies OK like it is then it will probably fly better with the pods ... eh !!

Tube cold without taping outside if i'm careful; with a little heat, it can go even tighter. At shows i will play with samples, and have even made compound curves with a little "massaging". I will expect to see some really swoopy designs in the future!

Geek: thanks for the unsolicited promo. Nothing like a satisfied customer!
Hi Springer, I wasn't aware that you were the MPF guy ... I did try x 2 on the order thinking that it might have been cheaper shipping, but it was just double so decided to just order the one pack, maybe if its good and I like it, we could look at me becoming a distributor in Oz and bringing it in in bulk

one of the three (dz1sfb, bz1mcr and me). Shipping is a bit wierd. We are right at the limit of hitting dimensional weight penalties whether domestic or international, so there is no gain with multiple bundles, but rather it gets worse. Bummer, but that is the way the postal folk work.

If I get serious about MPF I might have to DRIVE up to springers' place and load up the truck.

It's still eat me due to Gas prices but IF I could combine it with another sojourn
it would be Ideal !

As it is buying boxes is about all I can muster.

Just emailed you, Bob, but if you come up with that MDC YF-23 in MPF I'm all ears. Looks to me like you have a Good Thing® going there.

Sorta !

Either My site is stale , or
Someone has secretly slandered me, or
the Economy is much worse this summer than has been reported
but ,
it's been a a chilly summer re sales.

Still, I'm thankful for those who are On Board :-)

I'm hopeful for the coming building season.

So !!!

Doing the MDC YF-23 in MPF would be a good idea as it's a bit ore Bendable.
Let me take a peek and get back to you,

Best
