Re: '41 W/NG "Scrambler"

I was thinking smaller also at first, but the guy cutting the vinyl decals then had troubles with the crown details. Anyway, it can easily be removed if I get tired of it ;) A nod to RAF history is a nice touch too! Maybe a small Spitfire outline with "The Few" under it? This one is nice: ...

Re: '41 W/NG "Scrambler"

Further cosmetic tinkering, while waiting for tools to fix issues with my head (cylinder head that is...) - a "Difusa" flat glass for the head light, along with an H4 reflector from Paul Goff, some small decals here and there and a rather large decal on the petrol tank, nodding to the WD-p...

I immediately got the impression that I had been shot at, as I first registered a hit, and then a sharp, intense burning pain at the sp...

Re: Cylinder head with issues..

The easiest solution is often not so obvious Nev, thanks for the advise. I'll give it a go, run a tap in the rocker box threads and get the head bolt landings even. Will measure the guides to see if they need to be swapped. How much wear can be allowed on the guides? Another cylinder head, that was ...

Re: Cylinder head with issues..

Great info, thank you! I will talk with a welder I know, problem will be to heat it sufficiently without a glass blowers stove I guess. We have acy/ox at the shipyard, and mig.
