Edubarca its what you were brought up with in the UK the youngsters are taught metric at school now yet when fishing I used to hear its 6ft deep here, just caught a 4 and a half pounder ect. I can roughly visulise any imperial measurement give me the same measurement in metric and I have to consult the oracle.

The stupid system is imperial. Why is it then that the majority of the countries worldwide use centimetres and not inches? because metric is logical easy to use!

metric - imperial debate


Chill out guys.
I was brought up in the UK with both systems.
I prefer metric for almost everything to do with engineering measurements, but when modeling I still buy imperial wood sizes, weight in oz, spans in inches. Its not a problem really.

The numbers and decimals are easier in metric, but not that hard in the old system.

Actually, I have rulers in 1/10", 1/50" 1/100". Still use them nowadays at 67. Might be starting to get hard, last eye check showed I'm having a baby-a baby catarac.

I've been using both Imperial and SI since High School Chem and Algebra II about 1960-61. Also both Temperature, Weight/Mass, and Distances interchangeably. When I was stationed in Libya, I used to drive AF vehicles on off-base assignments without speeding just by multiplying the posted speed in kph by 8 and dividing by 5. Got close enough.

Actually, I believe the current Imperial system is no longer based on things like barleycorns or the length of the King's forearm. Most units have been converted to similar things as the SI.

Same here. And working in manufacturing, I have to jump between both systems on a daily basis...

With the automotive industry leading the way, it will only be a matter of time...

Global cutlass 10


I built this kit a while ago, and I think I kept the plan. I'll try to get it scanned and post it here. Stay tuned.

Well, if at first you don't succeed and all that.

Cement Mixer - a very interesting rudder only pusher from around 1950-51.
Das Ugly Stick - A CAD rendition of a later Vintage Classic.
Das Liddle Stick - A reduced size versin of the .60 sized Ugly Stick.
3 old Berkeley designs. May already have been uploaded previously, not sure. May even have downloaded them from here. Been handling so many files for the last few months, I sometimes loose track.
Kwick FLy, a classic by IIRC Phil Kraft.
Lil Esquire, an .049 version of an early Midwest .15 powered RO classic.
Thanks for including the Das Ugly Stick 50+, I'm very pleased to see this is added to your collection. Man, to think I drew that over 10 years ago. What a trip.

Nice looking, but I would never try to fly the full sized, no forward or downward visibility.
But I might make a model of it.

Thanks.

Just to fan the flames, Proper metric users work in millimeters

Centimeters are used by school kids and knitters.
