Re: Early Int. Moth info.

Nessa The poor moth you have painted purple looks like a Magnum 5 , i really hope thats the primer not top coat !!

Re: A couple of Mirror problems

Peter H The Mirror class rules clearly ask for one hatch 150mm dia in the fore tank , thats a 6" HOLE you can cut at will and anywhere to repair your mirror with whatever is your prefered method . The tank is one piece , ie no center spine . Scarphed ply would be favourite but your prefered bog mix ...

Re: Contender 2

My point being when Bob Miller designed the Contender he had never dreamed up the name Ben Lexan In 1967 he was known as Bob Miller and not that great .
