I am not revealing who is wearing it but if you want one talk to Mike.

We lost Mike in 2015 after a short illness. Mike was a well liked member who first

joined the club around 1985, and will be sadly missed.

Brian's 'A' Certificate presented at the field 1st September 2004


Matthew's new Synergy had its first flight.  Nick made some good landings with his Cub.  Stan's electric Cub and  the all moving tail plane on his OD from (empty) beer cans provided much entertainment in the air, assisted by Roy.

The lower 3 photos are at the NASA flying field but the models would look at home in 'Area 51'

Photos 1,2,3,5 - 7 August  2004, a sunny and very hot afternoon.  4 & 6 - 15 October 2004, much cooler.


 

Left: ZN Line Fashion before the disaster (thought to be pilot error, later found to be aileron extension leads broken within the plastic sleeveing).  Centre and right:  Original tailplane and rudder, 3 part wing repaired + 4 ozs, new fuselage finished as original but red on the top of the fuz brought forward to give what I think is a more balanced colour scheme, polyester basecoat and two pack clear finish.  Profilm wing and tailplane.  YS DZ140 Dingo, 15 x 13 APC prop


At the club field 12 July 2004.

 Nice to see one member happy and why shouldn't he be. Roy with his own design 'oldie' with OS 90 FS.  Brushed finish, looks the part and flies well.  John enjoys low speed aerobatics with his Smart Move.


 

Sheffield Hallam University entry for the heavy lift challenge at Elvington 6 June 2004 is test flown by Bob Nash at our field

The model weighs in at 2.5 kg and is expecting to lift at least 6 kg on a standard Irvine 40.  The laser cut ribs appear in a photograph lower down the page, the unusual under cambered wing section can be clearly seen.


My latest ARTF, 1 to 1 A380.  Wings not ready but I have plenty to be getting on with.

Note double deck is just visible through RH (red) fuselage end cover.  Pretty good scale detail!
