Hawker Demon, wrong plane at the wrong time?

Hi Max, I hope you're sitting down, maybe with a nice glass of something relaxing? The pattern on the top wing is different, from the build thread on Britmodeller




I feel terrible, think I need a glass of something.

The photo on page 4, shows well the 5 triangles on top.

It’s a bit too blurry to discern the exact  position of the markings, but more photos may exist and help, plus that thread also.

After fixing the markings on the fuselage sides and the top wing with brio, I don’t doubt a second that Max can fix this!

Better to know now than when the wing is glued in place!

Max, making mistakes is just human, but fixing them as well as you do, ,when it could discourage many, is the truly admirable part!

Oh dear, and there was I talking about crass stupidity only seconds ago! :BANGHEAD2:

As an experienced aviation researcher I should have remembered the golden rule of always checking your primary sources:




It's no big deal and is easily fixed, I think the larger, fewer triangles will actually be easier to do, and it gives me an excuse to spray that beautiful eau de nil colour which goes down so well!  Thanks Andy (I think!) and Alain.  Watch this space. :coolio:

Another thought.....if one were to give the Shuttleworth Trust a reasonably good "donation", would they thank you with a back seat ride on the next test flight?

Sadly not Pete, they are not allowed to carry passengers I am told, doubtless insurance costs would skyrocket!

I’d do it in the blink of an eye Mike! :rolleyes:

I might mention there's a queue (pointing behind me) :D


Coming along nicely Max, nice to see how you're dealing with setbacks and new information.
