OUT OF LAWRENCE'S WORKSHOP APPEARED THIS LOVELY
SOPWITH 'PUPETEER' READY FOR THE SKY
This beautifully built model is constructed from a Flair 'Pupeteer' short kit.
Spanning 60-inches it is powered by a Saito 56 FSA, four stroke engine, which sounded wonderful. The covering is Oratex on which
Lawrence has done a very professional paint job.
The pilot figure, the gun and the mock engine are all 3-D printed.
Keith performed the maiden flight flying it in a very scale-like manner. Nice to watch. He reported it needed only one click to trim
the elevator and one click for the ailerons. Testimony to the model's very accurate construction.
Can't wait to see your next model Lawrence!

THE MUCH NEEDED RUNWAY REPAIRS COMMENCED TODAY
The NDMAC Repair Squad arrived at Kirkistown this evening and immediately got to work with the task of repairing the cracks and holes in the runways.
The evening, as luck would have it, was warm and dry and with a fairly stiff breeze.
Now that the club has aquired a mixer, kindly gifted to us by a member, (JW), the job of cement mixing could only be described as a 'piece of cake!
Mike seemed to be enjoying crack filling.......
Johnny was as happy as I've ever seen him........
Mark was putting his back into it..........
George fills lots of 'nasties'......
Brian had knee pads on. I should have thought of that!
Dennis dishes out the 'mix'
Team NDMAC taking a well deserved break.
The squad worked hard and everyone seemed to have enjoyed the craic and the satisfaction of a job well done.
There are still more sections requiring attention which we intend address fairly soon.
A very big "thank you" to Mike, Mark, Dennis, Brian, George and Johnny
