    Wood5tock's Super Hornet II build

    After completing my Novafox I was itching to get on with another project so decided to get on with this custom new build Back in 1993 I bought myself my first Tamiya, a 58124 Super Hornet I have since started to restore it and now decided to retire it to shelf queen status once I have finished it. A idea was then sparked by XV Pilot was to create an updated of my beloved Super Hornet. So after a bit of research and info from XV I decided to get myself a NIB 58416 Rising Fighter to form the basis to the project as it is essentially a Supper Hornet/Grass Hopper 2 sharing about 75% of the mouldings. So lets crack on with the build. I shall build it more or less standard then start looking at hop-ups and mods etc. Some of the usual suspects for the build Got a brand new SH shell for the build Time to open the box Also first time to use my 'Quandry" boxes to see if they work Standard silver can goes straight into the spares box, getting a bit of a collection now So on to the build steps Charge Batter Set up servo saver Attaching steering rods

    Wood5tock's Frog build

    The best laid plans of Mice and Tamiyaholics... I did my best to keep the shrink wrap on this until other stuff was finished, but with the Super Hornet on hold (waiting on news about the decals) and at this point (Monday) waiting on all my Bommerang parts orders (which have arrived far quicker than expected) I decided I wanted to do something else so i grabbed my Re-re Frog kit which arrived back at the very end of January and started it (I don't think I did too bad hanging on to a new kit for that long) Right here we go Parts bags in their drawers The other parts bags put into misc drawers ready for the build Now on to the build

    Wood5tock's Boomerang Runner

    Just under a year ago I bought myself two Boomerangs which I intended to build both display and runner version from, you can view the strip down thread here. With spares already in stock and existing parts cleaned I have now decided to give my new work station a test and build the runner version. My usual rules apply, Sport Tuned motor, ESC, proper bearings, pearl version of box art paintwork etc So lets crack on... Setting up radio control gear and checking

    Recommend me a bench vice...

    If you want to go proper vice then Record ones are great. I have a 6" one in my garage. However if it's just a light hobby one I use one of these for RC stuff. Hasn't let me down yet. Its a Draper

    Radio gear

    Nah, e-commerce sites have many back end automatic notification systems that have nothing to do with human input, apart from stock level adjustments.

    Woodstock's Den

    Currently (like a lot of us) I have been using my dinning table to work on my projects but after over a year of Tamiya stuff covering the place I really wanted to get a proper place to do this sort of stuff and store various paraphernalia. So a plan was hatched that I would transfer the gear up to my den/bedroom up in the loft. There was only one problem, I shared it with this And hiding behind this was all the associated gubbins for the hot water and central heating So with the boiler over twenty years old and parts beginning to fail and becoming obsolete I decided to go all out and have a combi condensor fitted along with other stuff so in came the plumbers to take this above, To this, below. With all the work done I could now get on with sorting out the, well filling the dirty great hole left in my bedroom First off I got the floor straight with some new floorboards. Alas after test fitting the new boards I found that the middle ones were rocking on something, not good! It turned out the main joint in the original cast iron central heat pipe running the length of the bungalow, (originally fitted my my grandpa when he built the place in the 30's ) was just a little proud under were the tanks had been. A bit of hacksawing later remedied the situation And the opening was now ready for the floorboards proper After that it was time to finish off the tongue and groove which was above the tanks. I also ran the cable for the lights which I want to have over the work area. And now on to today's (15.12.14) work, the plaster boarding. And finally some architrave and skirting boards to tidy things up a bit Got to get some more skirting which is annoying because as you can see I only need about 2 and a bit feet So tomorrow I will be filling all the screw holes, gaps and starting the supports for the bench.

    Those shelves are more like a holding bay. One of the other developments I want to get going is a solution to properly display the models as you say. I have the solution just got to make it/them

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    You haven't seem the rear wing of my Boomer I have just fudged... Just getting used to the new media, the roll cage I have just done is spot on and air brush cleaner makes for a great non harmful way of neatly getting rid of any tiny bleeds you can sometimes get. Don't worry lads I'm getting my airbrushing head back again. Once I have it down again I'll do a full report!

    Woodstock's Den

    From one of our masters of builds and paintwork that's quite an expectation to live up to... The spray booth is all in one and it folds up into the unit with the handle, the elephant nose just goes through the wall into a clear void of the loft. I am using water based paints so fumes and smells won't be problem. Well at least not from the paint Cheers MJ
