About Me

I started with brown paper & string as a kid, then progressed to pre-cut sheet balsa models received as presents.  Started working @ Pelco sweeping the floor about 50years ago @ a shilling an hour.  Used my first school holiday pay to buy an ED Bee 1cc diesel for one pound two and sixpence. I made one control line model, flew it in the paddock next door where Cummins is now and got instantly disallusioned with going round and round.  I burned that and built a Wright single valve receiver and bought a transmitter and escapement off Phil Hereford.  Then I built a Whit63 receiver from RCM&E and a transmitter and servos and a couple of models which I still have.  I have always been interested in aeroplanes, especially WW2 warplanes, and I hope to find some time after I have finished building my house.

What kind of aircraft is that inyour pic?

It is Brendan Deere's Spittie - photo taken during Aeroneers visit to Taonui last year.
