What's New From The Drawing Board of Tony Nijhuis

Updated 26th March 2014


Three new versions of the 48” size Vulcan
will soon be ready for launch! (mid-summer)

So why three? Well we asked our customers and the wider modelling fraternity which power system they would like to see in this new model; a tractor prop driven version, a twin pusher prop driven version or a multiple 50mm ducted fan version….Well needless to say the vote was split three ways and not wanting to disappoint, TND have reacted by making all three version available.

The plans will be ‘universal’ and show all the powered variants so you can buy the plans and then decide which version will suit you. By popular demand, we have agreed to allow the RCM&E Special magazine for 2014 (available in September) to offer the design as a ‘free plan’. Initial test flights with just the pusher version have proved favourable although the retract option may prove more of a ‘static option’ unless your runway is concrete or well-manicured grass!

Keep an eye on our web site for up-dates and pictures.

Specification:-

  • WingSpan- 48” (1220mm)
  • AUW- 4lbs 4oz (2kg)
  • Wing area -15oz/sq’

Almost there……we are only a couple of weeks away from launching our new 103” 1/5 scale Hurricane and today we took some ground shots of Nigel I ‘Anson’s tested and flown final prototype. You may have seen John and Greg Vesey’s mark 1 prototypes being flown at model air shows over the last few year, so we really have thoroughly tested this one.

As with all TND models, the model will be a plan pack and not a full kit. What we will be supplying is the plans, a full set of CNC cut part, a VAC formed canopy, a glass fibre cowl, enough wood to complete the model and finally a bespoke set of air retracts. Prices have not been finalised yet but the based package minus the retracts, will be around the £400 mark.

So here’s the spec;
Wingspan- 103” (1/5th scale)
Weight- 30-35lbs
Power- 60-80cc petrol (Zenoah-62 used in prototypes)

Another First..We Think

Single turbine powered Avro Vulcan! Test flight was last Sunday and she went like a dream...A little too sensitive on the elevator and the C of G a little too aft but a real peach to fly...
supper smooth, rock stead and seemingly vice less!!!! Made me look a good pilot!! LOL

Can't wait to get this one detailed and painted

Specification
98" Span
24lbs AUW (at moment)
WREN 100 (but the cheaper Wren 80 would be fine)
18oz/sq' Wing loading only!!!.....no wonder she floats
