  1. Sorry to hear such terrible news. Kiwis are like family. Hard to believe the scale of this catastrophe and misery. Matty
  2. I think they say it becasue they know it's actually not true and there's no robust peer reviewed evidence to support it. It's definitely a calculated CYA language. What I find objectionable about it, is that in a roundabout way, people who don't know any better don't understand the difference between CYA claims and the real deal. We used to have a show called 'The Checkout' here in Aus. They were able to show that some companies offered pseduoscientific services that would guarantee a research finding in keeping with advertising. Nothing that would withstand credible scientific scrutiny. Here's one of their funnier ones.
  3. I don't myself and am highly skeptical about the efficacy of any product that is sold with weasel out marketing clauses like 'can, may, could, might, can assist with, boosts'. I used to watch ABC's The Checkout and they exposed a lot of snake oil companies exploiting peoples best intentions. The TGA was as toothless as ASIC. To ascertain efficacy I'd recommend chatting to an orthopaedic surgeon. That's their field of expertise. Matty

    Incredible mate. Thanks for posting. Matty
  5. I'm not surprised that Erik Brown saw what had happened and surmised pretty quickly why. Experience counts. What is interesting is that he also said he'd seen it happen before and that it was a common pilot error. That to me is worthy of some further analysis. Is there indeed some factor that's at work here? It's necessary to be held accountable for the untimely deaths of those people but I'm not sure that process is useful for helping anyone understand why such a pilot errors occur and moreover how to prevent them.

  6. We're LSP. Like Kev said, our core business is LSP's. I can understand your argument but it's not a road this site would go down, especially when there's so many other sites that do offer that service. We had great debate about the non-LSP forum. We've actively chosen to not make it part of the build forums...again to emphasise our focus on LSP's. HTH Matty
  7. We've been checking in the staff forums and no one appears to have touched your content Alan. Perhaps it has something to do with our recent server malfunction? I also pruned your post to Ron. I won't let that kind of public response become in any sense a notionally acceptable tone of posting on LSP. 100% never to volunteer staff but also to or any member. We're not here to bust anyone's balls but to be helpful. We have our way of doing things and we expect everyone to be civil with each other. I'm not chastising you just lamenting you didn't check in with us first before reaching deep into the amygdala. Matty
  8. IIRC I found similar issues to other modellers when fitting the canopy using this resin set. Something to do with the hinge mechanism, canopy rails and seat. HTH. Matty
  9. Hoping he's OK and getting better soon. Matty
  10. You could knock one up by buying the parts separately if you can't make contact with the supplier. Needs a few engineering tools but pretty straight forward. Probably worth the price in terms of mucking about. It's pretty clever. They look a bit tricky to set up but once you've got it right would be rather handy. Would definitely need 10 or 12mm plate for the magnetic base if you were going to paint a heavier plane than the P51 on his webpage. Matty
  11. Found a local link on a restoration project. some good internal details for the cowl...especially outer shape vs inner HTH Matty
  12. A flat bit on the top and bottom between the sides? It looks like they've maintained the radius on the plastic part but the plane has a decreasing one? Nightmares of decreasing radius corners riding sportbikes. I wonder how much it's actually off when viewed square to the end of the prop shaft. Matty
  13. Awesome. A credit to the modelling community. Well done ladies and gents. Matty
