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!)

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 Yesterday at 19:35:32 »
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
Ian

RC Model Flying Events / Re: Xmas fly-in
« Last post by pylon≤ on Yesterday at 19:27:00 »
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

Pretty sure that is the HobbyKing foamie "Lancaster", which while looking the part, fails completely to live up to its looks. They produced a MkII because the Mk1 was so bad, and it was little better.

PLEASE don't ask how I know, biggest waste of my money yet......................................................

Remember double declutching? Used to be necessary when changing down on a three gear Morris minor in the early sixties.
If I try to work out now how it was done I wonder how it was done in a fraction of a second!

Having driven LOTS of vehicles in the last decade that had no synchromesh AT ALL, and needed properly timed and executed double de-clutching UP and down the box, the answer must be yes.

Question is, who remembers the "Clutch Stop" device that many heavy commercials had to enable a change up the box to be made before the road speed dropped back so far you had to down change again to get going, and why you needed it?
