Thanks for the kind words gents.
We have some challenges getting the materials here on the Southern end of Africa, but I'm looking into getting in contact with fellow vintage/stick and tissue nuts down here to see what they are using.

Hello from South Africa.

I've been flying models for near on 40 years now, starting with the compulsory Guillows, Veron, Keil Kraft and other rubber free flighters. I moved on to control line a few years later and have been flying radio control for around 20 years now.

Lately I've had the urge to go back and rediscover the simple pleasures of the small stick and tissue model, perhaps with a little injection of electric and RC technology here and there.

Currently busy with a Guillows Cessna 170 with electric RC conversion.

Looking forward to meeting fellow enthusiasts.
