I am building a 4m (1:3.5 scale) Luňák and have got to the point of fitting a tow release for aero-towing. My question is how critical is the position of the tow release? I am fitting a standard Multiplex aero-tow coupling. The instructions say "Drill and file out a 10mm hole in the extreme nose of the fuselage, taking care to make it exactly central", however the build instructions I have for the model say to install it down 30degrees on the centre line - I don't understand how to measure this, but there are plenty of pics on the web showing full size Luňáks and show the tow release below centre. Just wondering - should I be carefully measuring this somehow at 30degrees? or will an approximation do - what are the potential issues of getting this wrong if any? Does it even matter at all?
Hi all I attended the Great Southern Model Auction in Romsey, Hants yesterday After all my years of writing for the various model mags I always take a camera with me....just in case there's something worth a snap...... This pic is of the cockpit detail of a scale Auster (I think it's an Auster, it's certainly not a Cub) - tow plane...... Anyone recognise ALL the badges of the model gliding clubs represented by the badges on the (scale) beanie hat? I'll give you a starter for 10........I'm pretty sure, in the front, is the White Sheet badge......
