REVIEWS

FOKKER D.VII

The D.VII is a favourite with scale modellers due to its benign flight characteristics and lack of rigging, making it a good everyday scale model. Ripmax are distributing the all-wood construction kits from Super Flying Model and here Frank Skilbeck reviews their version of the D.VII

DH CHIPMUNK

With the Galaxy Models range of foam wing and built up balsa fuselage kits now being sold by Traplet we asked Peter Maw to write a ‘no holds barred’ review. These traditional kits take some of the hard work out of building your own model aeroplane but do require some modelling

FEATURES

WASSMER WA 22 SUPER JAVELOT

Designed by Chris Williams, the optional E-Assist of this 4.6 metre span scale glider converts it to a model for all occasions. At 1:3.25 scale it is still an impressive size but at 20 lb it is light enough for those of advancing years to still be able to throw it off the hill

WOODY’S SOUTHERN CROSS

Whilst on holiday in Australia, Bruce Corfe caught up with the latest scale model from multi motor maestro Rob Woodhead. Rob’s new model took a year to build from scratch using ply, balsa and fibreglass. Power comes from three Saito 30 cc four-stroke, three cylinder radial petrol engines

LMA HEADS FOR HAYDOCK

Neil Hutchinson takes us on a tour of the Large Model Association’s new Static Show at Haydock Park Racecourse, which follows in the footsteps of the much missed Haigh Hall show near Wigan. The LMA only used the downstairs area so there is a lot more room for expansion...!

SHRIKE

Bill Bowne got so carried away when enlarging a much-liked previous design (called the Valkyrie) that he ended up with practically a new model that deserved a name all of its own. The new model, now called the Shrike, spans 51 inches and suits a 4S-2200 mAh LiPo

AN ALTERNATIVE MINICAB

Are you interested in building a Gardan Minicab from our Feature Plan in the May issue? Phillip Kent passes on some pictures of a Minicab model in an alternative colour scheme, plus some archive pictures of the full size aircraft that it was based upon

THE STRENGTH INSIDE YOUR MODEL

In his last article in this series John Bristow concentrates on cyanoacrylates and reveals what puts the Super in Glue! Since its introduction to the modelling market cyano has become a firm favourite because it sets so quickly and bonds so many modelling materials

NEAT 2016

At the annual Northeastern Electric Aircraft Technology Fair visitors get to see some innovative electric model tech. It’s also a great place to make friends, eat great food (it’s nicknamed ‘The EAT Fair’) and swap ideas. Bill and Micki Bowne report from the 16th consecutive NEAT Fair
