Oleos Wanted.

Long shot - Looking for two steel (tatty as hell) sprung oleos at around 120mm to take a fair weight - Someone just might have two of them in the bottom of a box. I am going to cut and mod them so I am not worried about how they look as long as the suspension functions - please let me know a price and I will make that old box a bit lighter for you next time you get it out....
In case your wondering what I am after them for its for the project below - she is a very old lady who I am now trying to make look a lot younger again by getting out all the old "prangs" and botched repairs done over many years together with the most awful paint job which also has a nice coat of yellowing pickling varnish making her wrinkles look so much older than she actually is... You can see here that the camera lies well. Will keep you all updated as work goes on at full steam.  Thanks for digging into that box if bits...
Regards Peter.

Jan's Hurricane Update & something New

The engine in Jan's Hurricane has now been run up and sounds sweet as only a four stroke engine can, engine cowling has now been fitted and I am so pleased I installed the engine inverted instead of ruining the exhaust ports with a side mounted engine - so thats that for the Hurricane for now but now I had better show the OTHER Shuttleworth Collection plane Jan now has - She now owns two of the Shuttleworth Collection planes and soon she will have more planes than me! Beat You To It Roy - Where Is Yours!

3D Heli

Dave's 3D flying with the Logo 600 and the brushless motor in this beast sounds like a jet turbine when it starts off. See what you think...
