First model in new shed!


I was really keen to get stuck back into various unfinished (and unstarted) models in my new shed but opted to build something small and simple to fine-tune the tools, accessibility and general usefulness of the new building space so Built Peter Rake's little (under 30") Russian Moska ww1 monoplane - she built and flew fine A build log is at: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1969505

Another model started in 2014 was a 1/6 Camel - the only one of its kind from the, sadly, now defunct Aerodrome RC. I did the fuselage to get the hang of Kay's design style but will put it on hold until other, older projects, are done!
The thread was put into the new WW1 model forum but will be slow for a while yet! The Duncan Hutson Lysander is structurally complete and needs covering and the He111 is nearing completion also. Their build threads are here:
Camel - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2057046
Heinkel - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1720055
Lysander - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1819208

The Lysander is to the Duncan Hutson plan after I abandoned (and dismantled) my start on the magnificent Frank Mizer version. I know myself well enough after nearly 70 years, to recognise that the Mizer model was not going to be completed. My building style needs me to be engrossed full time in the task and when that involvement wanes, it is better that I admit defeat and give the job away. Life is too short to have 'I'll get around to it one day' projects piling up so that Lizzie was retired into oblivion

I still want to have a long-term, engrossing project and parts for that have been slowly accumulating for when some others have been finished. But more of that later......
