“I started using knitting needles in my Control Combat model 25 odd years ago when I was living and working in Holland, as everybody else in the Hobby was using them too,” explains Howe, who has been incorporating knitting needles into his aeroplanes for more than 25 years.
Since the planes are combat models, they fight one another in the air, which often results in irreparable damage. It’s a good thing the needles come in packets of five because international competitions require “vast supplies” of these models!
