RCM&E  |  February 2022  

Right, now let's take a brief look at what we have lined up for you in the February 2022 issue of RCM&E.

Starting with our regulars, in his Bench Blog column Tim Hooper covers and glazes his elegant Answer vintage model. In Scale Gliding, Chris Williams returns to White Sheet Down for another scale event before handing over to Frank Skilbeck for his report from the Sherlowe and Milson aerotow meetings. Next, we say a hearty 'welcome back' to Danny Fenton as he resumes his Make It Scale column by picking up on the final covering of his DB Auster project. Over next to Alex Whittaker, to wrap things up in Weekenders; this time he looks at a range of 3D items made by other modellers but manages to talk his way out of adding a 3D printer to his shed tools. Let's see how long he can hold out!

For our pull-out Pro-Plan this month we once again hand over to Tony Nijhius as he presents his second 'Midi Jet' for 70mm electric ducted fan units. This time Tony offers up his striking 36-inch span Hawker Hunter.

On review, David Ashby takes a look at a one metre wingspan A-10 micro jet that hails from a new brand, XFly-Model distributed by CML. Lee Smalley then offers us a user's view of the new Ethos operating system built into FrSky's X20S radio set. Wrapping up our reviews this month is that man again, Frank Skilbeck, with his assessment of Century UK's Pro-Build variant of the agile Double Trouble biplane.
For his Model Magic walkaround, Alex Whittaker takes his camera on a tour of a fine P-47 Thunderbolt owned by Malcolm Wood. John Stennard then describes his club's addiction to Airbugs and other R/C hovercraft, which have become at big draw at winter indoor meetings. We then return to Alex W for his take on this year's wet and windy Ashbourne fly-in.

I hope you enjoy reading it all.
