Impressed by BARCS, nice site, good content, and my first post received very helpful replies. As a "mature beginner" I last built a flying model decades ago, KeilKraft jobs my cousins and I were keen on, so I need all the help I can get. But this hobby has advanced so much that it's more accessible, with electric power, cheaper electronics etc. Don't know yet if I'll be more keen on (semi-)scale aircraft, or gliders, but I want to try both; and since I always do my own thing, I want to build and customise – I built my own fishing rods, handload my own rifle ammo, make stuff... In fact my post here was seeking advice on an oldish kit I picked up, Aquarius 540 by the defunct Galaxy Models – thanks to Pete and JG for their advice. Initially I'll get something in foam, which everyone advises, prior to building my own; the other day I visited Stan Yeo's PMP models in Newton Abbot (I'm in S.Devon) and Stan was full of helpful advice, suggested a Radian to start with, and someone else proposed the Multiplex Solius. rgds Tony
