UK Regional / Re: The South East Flyers Thread Part 2

Lucky you. I was working on my daughters new flat in Maidstone. I spotted you guys when I was driving back up the A 249. Typically the weather is rubbish today.

Gentle cold afternoon up at Thurnham yesterday, Adrian flew his Alua and I managed to get the Nimbus up for a decent flight. The lift dropped so I came in and it seemed that the lift had disappeared...then Paul arrived and magically re-invigorated it, so a brace of Alua's wafted around in the diminishing light.

When I used to work for a bus company we had Marina vans as hack transport. I remember taking one around a roundabout and as I steered it round to the right the nearside door flew wide open, came as a surprise to the passenger sitting there...

There was a period where the business wanted us to use Hire Cars, any group C from four hirers. I dropped one when they pushed a Marina on me. TBH the Montego wasn't that much better either, but the Marina was the worst thing I ever was asked to drive apart from the Hillman Hunter and the Vauxhall HA van.

On Minors, I have driven quite a few vans, Red, Red and White "Engineering" striped, Olive Green and Yellow, but never a car or woody. 

I did a few events inc the HCVC run in the last Minor the PO ever bought (Yellow, Telephones), which was complete with the full set of tools and consumables it carried in service. (And yes I did have fun with the fuel pump as it stood around a lot!!). One day I was getting it ready for a trip inside the Museum a woman game over and it became instantly clear she thought I and the van were current BT!!! !! !!

There was nothing wrong with the Marina that NOT owning one wouldn't cure - says smug me!
Mike (the smugness was caused by having hired one for a couple of days - felt much better when I gave it back!)


I had two marinas (company cars!) and they both dripped water on to your right foot when it rained, which made it difficult to appear presentable at the end of a journey !

My Grandad had one - they were hateful things.

Although not as bad as the Morris Marina he replaced it with.
The one thing about them was that they were easy starting. If my battery was flat I could start it on a level road by pushing it, juping in an slamming second gear. The slightest bump and it started. The Marina was a pig.

Slope / Wanted NAN Shadow tailplane
« Last post by Nicholls on December 11, 2017, 19:35:32 PM »
I need a NAN Shadow cross-tail all flying tailplane please. Red preferred but just tell me what you have?

It's for a F5J  but F3J is the same.

I would even consider a fuselage and tailplane.

Thanks

RC Model Flying Events / Re: Xmas fly-in
« Last post by pylonČ on December 11, 2017, 19:27:00 PM »
Thank you all for showing great interest in bringing back the Xmas Fly-in. We are calling the Event the Alan Lill Memorial Xmas Fly-in  in honour of Alan Lill who sadly passed away recently. Alan was a long standing member of our GDMAS Club at Barkston Heath and a fantastic builder and flyer of Scale Models. Hopefully his son, Justin will be flying one of his models on the day.
Regarding the date I will pick this nearer the time to give us all the best weather.
Thank You
Richard
