@108buzz,
Sounds really good. My Keleo exhaust is on the way. Last time I checked, it passed through San Fran.
The spinner is at the powder coating place for a matt off white finish and I hope to have it back on Friday.
I also have a Topflite cockpit on order. It's kind of getting a bit cold here to do test runs
of the engine outside (-11c) and snow. Oh well, I might heat up the garage once I am ready.
I will find out on the weekend if my design of the eight 303 machine gun mock ups will
work.
Will post some pictures of the progress.
I am looking at the robostruts 650's, but am still searching for a good deal on them.


@Moggy,
thank you for the link to the building forum. Lots of good building tips.
I had a look at the cockpit scratch builds. Now that is modeling. I'll have to give that
a try.

Andreas
Happy Flying and stay warm.

I have just added Aeroloft dry- transfer "nomenclature" to one of my warbirds. It is an awesome finish detail to any warbird.

Directions say to cover with a clearcoat. I have been using Top-Flite cler-flat Lustercoat on all of my warbirds as I love the finish look. Does anyone know if the Lustercoat is compatable with the Aeroloft dry-transfers? The can has no desription of the contents make-up. Must be Top secret.

thanks

Mist it on in several light coats. Allow each coat to dry before doing the next one.

Cheers,

If I qualify for the Spitfire Brotherhood I'd like to be 'in'.

I'm scratch building63" Spitfirewhen I'm back in Thailand. I'm in North Africa right now. When I sayscratch I mean no proper plans. Iscaled up a small electric model plan just for the overall shape and I've made everything except the RCV SP90 engine,propellor, radio and servos, even down to sawing a plank of linden into strips and sanding them down to make thelongerons and spars.I'm hoping she'll be finished by Christmas and in the air early in the New Year.

I just finished scanning the entire thread for order information on the shirts. It appears the light blue pocket T shown here is the closest to what we are looking for in the blue.

This shirt with the logo attached silk screened on the back is going to run about $20.00 each delivered. Well at least in the US, but will work to ship anywhere they need to go.

Below is the thread info I found.

Please review and confirm the sizes and number of shirts desired. I told the shirt guy there would be about 25 to start with and it looks like we will surpass that number.

The collared shirts run around $6.00 more each, and he did not indicate we could not mix the order up.

Let me know this next week and I will go back with our orders.

Thanks: Steve

MajorTomski lighter color blue. Pocket tee 3 EACH-XXL

glazier808 light blue pocketed tee.

mad web tv scientist whatever comes close to ''royal blue'' with a pocket and collar with short sleeves in large size

FireBee one T shirt and 1 collar shirt. both Large size
FireBee Two large t shirts either blue ok

Brad330l darker blue 'T' would be more practicably but hey humans are pretty un-that so I will go with the flow with two 'Large'

albsurfer 2 tees in Lge if they aren't HANES

F4u5 Pocket Tee XXL, I'm a follower, so I will go with the masses on color

Moggy Pocket Tee please XL, I think we want something closer to ID Blue or roundel blue

prgonzalez I like the dark blue T better

Warbirdguy I like the lighter color blue. Pocket tee XXL

jet22b pocketed RAF blue tee, XL Just let us know the cost

Chad Veich short sleeve t-shirt with the pocket in the darker blue, XXL and XXXL might even be better

triumphman49 2 pocketed Tees in Med

flyntruk would like 2 tees in XXL

Cal Branton I would like a collared shirt in XL

Pitts532M t-shirt and collar shirt please in XL

scooter T shirt also a coller shirt med size if thay fit big small please About the shirts when you have the costs I may buy more

tevans55 Collared XL for me if that is an option

dasintex too complicated of a design to do cheap enough; simple is always better


mistermnkim That would look great on the back of the shirt, and Have SPITFIRE on the front left

dennymo What happened to the Spitfire Brotherhood T-Shirt issue

SIX GUNS T-shirts as to the squadron

stimul8tor Just wondering if anyone settled on the shirt

Saburo Sakai Anything with a Spitfire on it is beautiful

redtail

Super_Chief of course a maple leaf somewhere on the pocket of the shirt
aerofalcon Azure blue with RAF wings on that shirt pocket

j-d

funfly-RCU My vote is for the RAF Color

triumphman49 Really like the collared & pocketed shirt nomination

dennymo I agree. RAF blue is right on.

DGUY I am definitely in on the shirts
Shirt Update:

Our shirts are being screened on Tuesday!!

Welcome to all the new brothers. Good to see the squadron grow.
My Hangar 9 spitfire build is going along fine.
The Keleo exhaust is installed and the cowl is cut and attached.
Am waiting for the powder coating place to call me that the spinner is ready.
Can't wait.
Robart robostruts 650 have landed and are waiting to be installed.
Does anyone know where I can get my hands on the rotol decals or transfers
for the prop blades? (The nice light blue one) see attached.
I found some pictures on the net of original Spitfire props,
but making these with a graphics program is pretty cumbersum.
I really don't want to reinvent the wheel. Would be nice if there is something out there
already.

Andreas

Happy Flying
