Short Sarafand at an RC event in Bury, Lancashire

This is the place to discuss and ultimately show-off all aspects of constructing and actually flying your radio-control flying boat models. Pictures of construction, materials used, finishing and action shots of them flying, are very welcome.

Short Sarafand at an RC event in Bury, Lancashire

Hi Guys n Gals,

I paid my first ever visit to a small but very friendly RC event in Bury, Lancashire today. The BMMFC are running a scale flying model event all this weekend, in memorial to their long term member and chairman John Benham, who'd sadly passed away recently.

It appears that John had been building an 80 inch wing span Short Sarafand and one of the other members has taken on the task of it's completion, so the least I could do was to post a couple of images here.

Lovely undermodeled subject. Looks like the member who inherited this beautiful project has his work pretty well cut out for him, as the build looks well along. I can only imagine how much work the builder who started the project had put into it.
