Re: Glues

West System is a recognised system, there is a tendency for LAA to want you to use a light top finish if areas underneath are subject to heating. That said, the One Design aerobatic aeroplanes have their mainspar and skins glued on with West, they are stressed +10/-10g and several in the USA are pai...

Re: Spraying dope with HVLP

Depends which system you are referring to. Either way, it sprays fine. I am talking the difference between a turbine sprayer and an air line fed one. They both run a similar gun, should be about 1.2 or 1.3mm nozzle. The only thing I would want to ensure with the turbine unit is has it got protection...

RV Model A Engine Mount

Vans have asked me to see if anyone needs a mount for a 7A or 9A with a 360 engine. May also fit a 6A

Someone has ordered and received one over here incorrectly and instead of re stocking at vast expense, Anne has asked me to reach out.

Contact me off list please.

Re: 2024-T3 Wanted

Odd thicknesses.

There are suppliers in the UK, but they will be standard American thicknesses.

Google search will reveal, however PM me for alternatives.

Re: Availability of Aerowave 2001

Don't bother....

Swap to Tetrosyl Etch Prime and save yourself a whole chunk of money for an equally good product.

If you want something with an aeroplane name on it, the 2 part - not 2 pack product that LAS sells is the same (Tetrosyl said so :mrgreen: )

Survey

A survey is best done in a manner that allows people to answer honestly and anonymously....

Therefore, I think the turnout will be lower than it could have been.

Just a suggestion for next time 8)

Re: Why do so many VP-1's fall into disuse?

Also , @Mike N. you're dead right mate . It is , "flying , but not as we know it".
