Free Flight Supplies Newsletter No.70
This newsletter replaces No.69 on the web site. The list is being developed and the gaps are being filled in. Some new product ideas are being developed (slowly!), but it all takes time. The tidying and sorting of the range continues. My idea now is still to deepen the range rather than expand into new areas. I will also take any opportunities that come my way to improve the range of items.

ESAKI TISSUE AND SILK
Quality tissue made in Japan by Esaki, a tissue developed by the original manufacturers in a range of colours and weights specifically for covering model aircraft. Cover shiny side inside, not critical but don't mix as a different sheen results from the two different surface finishes. There is very little grain but it runs down the longest measurement of the sheet. The Lite Flite is probably the best tissue to use over Mylar covering.
Lite Flite: 450mm (18”) x 600mm (24”) (12.5 gms per sq. metre)
Additional colour- Sky-blue £0.75 per sheet.
Prices are for tissue sent folded in an envelope, large orders or extra for packaging and post will ensure it is sent rolled, remember that the cost of post and packaging can cost more than the tissue! If sent folded and it arrives creased, iron with warm household iron and leave flat overnight then use and it will be o.k.) You can send a tube with your order if you wish.
Modelspan tissue available in white and in two weights.
Lightweight 51cm x 76cm 12 gms per sq metre £0.65 per sheet
Heavyweight 51cm x 76cm 21 gms per sq metre £1.00 per sheet

1. There are various ideas in the pipeline that are being developed: -
The state of play the progress (if any!) is noted! Very little in fact has happened the effort of keeping the ship as it exists on the road takes all the time that is available.
New Polish timers have been specified and prototypes are awaited. My producer is getting down to the new ideas and more prototypes are due very soon. Currently he has problems keeping up with demands for the existing range. A new design for a three function flat scroll timer is being developed. A new lighter weight Tomy timer is also being tested. Now I have the combined engine squeeze off and D/T I'm also looking at a valve shut off operating on the same basis
More data charts. When I get around to writing them up.
The "how to do it" publications. Other ideas based upon my experiences and your questions are being written up.
I'm continuing to concentrate on getting the pipeline sorted and rationalisation rather than searching out new items unless the obvious appears! However as you will see from the above the list just keeps growing!
