Club Night October 2018 saw members enjoy presentations from two notable members, John Ireland and Simon Dean with their giant scale models.
John Ireland started with a short PowerPoint history of a Russian warbird, the MiG-3 and described his construction of a large model of the aircraft from a now unobtainable kit. John has incorporated some worthwhile modifications to the original kit, notably the internal mounting of a tuned pipe which not only improves the scale appearance, avoiding the usual disfigurement of an external expansion chamber, but also significantly augments the power of the 3W 55i motor while reducing noise.
