    Why no larger scale airliners?

    I have the old 1/72 Aurora 727 and 737. A Bandai YS-11 and a Novo Handley Page Dart Herald both twin engine props, kinda nice models actually.

    Wow, I had that same idea for masking canopies. I have a miserable time trying to line things up when as soon as the mask touches the plastic it sticks. So if you don't have it lined up perfectly it messes the whole thing up. (as you all know). Wouldn't it be nice I thot, to be able to slide the mask around until it all lined up. Great minds ... Your jet plane's looking fantastic btw

    Vacuum Chamber or Pressure pot?

    OK I'll ask this of any of you experienced guys. If the goal of vacing molds and pressurising resin is to eliminate bubbles, why couldn't either vacing or pressurising work for both ?

    Won't happen. As long as the UK has products and services people in the EU and anywhere else wants , trade will find a way to happen. Money talks and everything else walks.

    It'll take that long to finish the airplanes that have already been started/sold. If it wasn't for that, it would be almost a stop work directive , tho they'll still be making spare parts for some years. I don't think many AB workers will lose their jobs permanently. Large producers like AB are always planning for the future. Customer demands are always changing so they'll likely be doing sub versions of the a/c they already produce as well as new stuff on the drawing board now.
