Coming along nicely Max. There can't be many bits left in the box now!

Thanks, Trevor.

I'm not ignoring you. For some reason I get no notification of posts in any thread on this forum.

Yep. There are only the fin and rudder, plus canopy parts left in the box - oh and the bits for the bottom of the fuse..

A few bits are missing, but nothing too hard to make. I've kept a list somewhere. :P

Anyway . . . the rear stabiliser and elevator are done.

I hope to mount them to the fuse next and set the incidence.

Cheers

Max,
Make sure you are signed in.
If you click on the "Quick Links" at the top left corner, and then on "Unread Posts", you will see everthing that is unread by you..
You may well get a lot the first time you do it, just open them all, and then you will just get the new ones.

No need to miss anything that gets posted.

Hi Barry

I've been through all of this before - I even used to have my own modelling forum, so I know how it's supposed to work; but this forum is different.

If I subscribe to a thread, I should get an email every time someone posts on it.

I shouldn't have to log in and search around to see what's going on.

That's not how it goes here - but the quality of the builds make it worthwhile to put up with it.

When I make a new post on my thread, I usually check back to see if anyone has commented. Then next time I post, I also find posts (like Trevor's), and apologise for not answering and move along.

I know that I (or my machine), will get the blame for it; but I've just spent A$3000 on a new laptop and I have every search engine known to Man and two different email systems. I'm pretty tech savvy as well.

Thanks for your interest.
Max

Hi Robbie

Yep. All checked. I just had another look.

It's a mystery, Watson. ;)

Ok, next question; are you using Gmail or Hotmail as your email service by any chance?

No. I'm using Outlook and Thunderbird.

My ISP is iiNet who also host my business domain and website.

I never lose any emails - except from this site.

Interestingly, I'm getting reply emails tonight from you.

I receive around 100 emails a day without any problems - probably half of them from forums.

The quality of the content is sufficient for me the endure the challenges of the site.

Don't worry about it, Robbie. I'm coping.

Cheers
Max

I'm about to set the rear stabiliser incidence, but I want to check the position of the fin.

T-61A 92.JPG

The incidence (as I understand it), is the angle between the wing and the stabiliser. The plans say that the wings are 0º I'm assuming that it is 0º from the datum build line.

The wings can't go anywhere other than where the tabs on the fuselage formers put them. The formers are sitting on the build datum line - sooo I'm guessing that the stabiliser incidence is -3º to the datum.

If anyone has any contrary views, I would be please to hear them.

Cheers :)
