    My name is Mike and I am a retired aircraft engine tech (civillian a/c).My experience covers from the Avro Anson C19, Supermarine Spitfire MK Vc and PR XI, Canadair CL-44, Shorts Belfast, Douglas DC8, Boeing 707 & 727. Everything I ever worked on is now a museum piece, like me some would say! Anyway, I've had it in my mind that I would like to recapture some of my youth before I shuffle off this mortal coil, and get back into building and flying model aircraft. I'm more into control line combat brcause that is what I used to do as a youngster and it was a lot of fun. I realise a lot has changed since then so please be gentle with me as I will be asking a lot of questions especially about modern building methods (the last model I remember making was a Mini Early Bird, covered with Solarfilm!) I still have my old diesel engines, but I have discovered that like me they are museum pieces, and are probably worth more than me! Thanks for adding me to the membership!
