Cheers Mike and Bill, good answers indeed. Didn't realise the foam was not being added, some serious trimming options open then. Hope what is planned for the weekend shift is progressive. Alas tomorrow it for me is play on the paid stuff, then get my restortion progressed on Sunday.

A stupid question .. Or maybe not.

Re: Technical Talk

Good luck with the Water Brake hyds Bill. The ruddy Jag undercarriage took me months to sort out! I just wish I had it in my back yard so I could sort it, not the ruddy 100 mile around trip once a week If I am lucky!

Yes Bill, the engines came from Everett Aero, a few years ago. They certainly are not flight worthy, but anything that is will be sold to dealers that will pay more than what Chris Wilson or James will pay for them. the modules have value if they have any life.

The Jaguar was a hulk when we got it. Most components stripped out. However we didn't have to rebuild the structure (thank God!)

Alas Bill, it will only trundle on the ground, 100 knts no more. Hopefully we will have the fuel through the burners before the summer. All the guys that work on her have 50 odd mile drives to get to her and shifts that do not tie up. Not a patch on K7 of course.

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Hi, I have been lurking about looking at the website for several years now. Wish I lived a lot nearer so I could help out (young Tom is down my way). However I have a little project that is taking my time up.. Nowhere near as impressive as K7, but still a challenge.
