    Storage options

    Hi,

    I have never seen these before but thought it might be useful to anyone thinking of ways to store aircraft on a field. https://www.kroftman.com/en_UK/p/con...-shelter-tc606
    One of those "so simple, why has it not been done before" jobbies. I happened upon the site on a completely unrelated search.

    Cheers,
    Paul

    Only Temp solution, eventually the covering degrades and rips apart. Do that a couple of times and you could have a steel structure supplied and erected!
    This cost €4700

    There's always someone who comes along with; that's no good, I'll justify my purchase because mines way better!
    It was an FYI, per my text. Nothing stopping someone lining it with wriggly tin either.

    Don't like, don't use it. Jeez.

    Is it just co-incidence that the banner ad under the first post is for exactly the item to which Paul refers?

    That's because you browsed to site, Google tracked you and the google advert placeholder on this site thinks you might be interested in the product. All part of Googles master plan to conquer the World.

    Google have some pretty impressive software that put the banner ad there before I clicked on the link!

    That's known as "Deep Linking", a process of using the page context (here, the url/link is on the page) and the page has had a couple of updates recently, so in Googles view, it must be a relevant topic and they have an advertiser willing to pay to be shown.

    Nothing to to with me, I have no commercial interest in the company or product. This is just one way the internet advertising & tracking works, personally I find it insidious and block tracking where possible.

    Temper temper Paul. It's got no front or back gables which cost extra and you need two of them to get approx 40 ft needed for a flexwing. It says that the ridge height is 1.8m but I'm going to assume that is from the eaves and the height of the shipping containers would add about 2.6m giving just over 11 ft clearance, not enough for my quantum that would need 13 ft to go in fully rigged on castors. It's fine if you allow for all that of course and have two shipping containers lying around the place anyway.
    I don't like it and won't use it, jeez back at ya

    Ooh ya, mines bigger and Better as well ha ha.
    (Even if we did a few co*k ups along the way to building it!)

    By the way, if anyone is thinking of putting a quantum into a shed sideways then you need a 13ft x 13ft hole to slide it in, then think about more height of you use a trolley. Depending on type, the doors could have added 50% to the cost but I went for making them myself in the end using 2 inch box 2.5mm thick and salvaged corrugated sheeting from another shed cost about €300 not including my time fabricating.
