      I have a couple of plans I found on the web but some are kind of hokey. Yours looked simple enough but was not sure how yours worked. Like how far away from the plastic sheet do you have the heating elements and so forth. Is there a set temperature you use? More pictures would be great and much appreciated. The simplest vacuform I've seen involved a wooden form, a large 2 ltr soda bottle, some extra wood for spacing and a hot air gun. Don't know if it would work with the plane you're doing but it was interesting for R/C canopies. thanks.

      Just came across your vacuform machine. I'll be in the process of making my own some time this winter. Do you have plans of some sort for the one you made? What kind of vacuum did you use and size of attachments etc... It looks brilliant from the pictures you posted. :)

      Thanks mate, leave it with me and I'll sort something as soon as I get the 'Hotmail' working. They 'improved' the system a few days ago, and now I can't access messages, or send new ones !

      Good stuff mate. Yes, just start a post in the GB Cold War section, under the new posts button, and include the details of name, kit etc, as shown in the rules and other posts.

      Sure is ! I found this site the day I got the Internet, and haven't known such a bunch of great people since my Army days, or had so much fun !

      Ah, do you mean the Wil....that thing?!
      It's just a bit of light-hearted fun, going back, I think, to the run up to the PTO Group Build, when Jan (Lucky) announced he was going to build one. I took the p*ss, saying it looked like a fat, ugly barrel, with stubby wings, with landing gear borrowed from a golf trolley, or something similar.
      It's been a standing, on-going joke ever since, especially as I posted a pic, taken deliberately by Karl (rochie), of me standing in front of a real one at Duxford last summer!
