Great work Gary, as per usual ;)

Is that your multi-function building spot on the NB, or your "photography corner"??
Cheers,

Wayne

Thanks Wayne, that's a kitchen work-surface but photography corner sounds good.
Next model? I've cut out the bits for a free flight ferry 500 electric duration model, it was featured in the AeroModeller a few months back and I got the clever bits from Peterborough. Thennn, I'm building an Eddie Riding Westland Widgeon, after that I need an indoor scale model, and I'm re-painting my boat....busy busy!

Hey Gary, how about a build thread on the ER WW, either here or on RCG? I have had the plan for forever and it has always been a model I have wanted to build - I sketched up a nose to take a KP02 when they first came out.

It's a-luvverly and I'm sure you can do it far more justice than I would have any hope of ever doing.

Hey Gary, I'm just finishing off a Ferry 500 - that Peterborough MFC 20" contest freeflighter that was in the AeroModeller a few months back. I saw that you'd built one too and I wanted to ask, how did it go?

Jonathan wossname said there were more competitive (and lighter) designs being flown in the US. Snag is, one of my two freeflight sites is quite small, so I really don't really need yet more performance! Something on the lines of an Ebenezer is nearer the mark, but I'd love to know what the guys over there are doing.

David
