It's taken a while but Phase 2 is now complete, we have a shiny new kitchen floor (reclaimed maple) and all fully insulated underneath. Decorating and new kitchen cupboards next!

Dean your going to have to stop playing with yourself 🤣

Er, why not just do the frames, you'll use alot less paint! 🤔

I’ve been spending most of my time driving around the fantastically empty roads of Wales, very few vehicles, no scameras and beautiful views, sadly it’s in a Mercedes Sprinter rather than a Lotus🙄, de

:lol: that's not such a daft question. We have two cats which both took a very close interest in the underfloor adventure playground and more than once went walkabouts under the house. I checked very carefully indeed before nailing down the last boards :)

Good idea, but you should have bought Lotus!  😊

When you get to my age Dean and getting up at some ungodly hour on a Sunday for a raz around the Peaks is out of the question, if you have a TVR in your stable, for some strange reason you are quite happy to rumble around in 5th gear in the midst of the Sunday drivers just listening to the sound of the exhaust.

I have finally finished the Super Corsair, parts used in the construction this time were Correx, plywood (wing spar), balsa (spinner), two pop bottles (rear canopy section and engine fairing), the metal bottom of a Pringles tube and kebab sticks (pilot's seat), plastic drink straws (exhausts) and white cut vinyl for all the graphics. Thanks also to Laura for sorting me out with photo-shopped and resized prints for the engine and cockpit detail.

I still have the paper plans to build 2 other aircraft although I'm not sure I dare start building another one just yet 😁

WHAT?

No way have you built that out of bits and bobs and a bit of plastic - I thought you were building these models using some sort of fancy kits! Have you ever considered a job with Blue Peter?

Amazing work that Phil, I'm well impressed 👍

Great work Phil. Will it fly?

I needed to get out to the supermarket today... well there's no rule about which car you have to use is there?

Will it fly? I certainly hope so Keith, will it land in one piece is the more pertinent question 😄

I bet the design criteria at Lotus didn't entail 'Ensure the boot can hold a week's shopping', but desperate times call for desperate measures 👍

Thanks Duncan, maybe I'll have a go at Tracy island next 😄

No kits involved, apart from the radio control for the ailerons and elevator the only off the shelf parts I've used on this one are the front part of the canopy from another Corsair kit and the pilot body (which Laura painted for me). It's all held together with a combination of contact adhesive and hot melt glue.

The next drone for LiTP perhaps?!

I don’t think the design criteria included carrying enough kit for a camping road trip around Norway either... versatile cars these!
