JohnO,

Glad to hear the enthusiasm is back.  Looking forward to seeing this bird come together.  It will be inspiring as usual.  I'm assuming the lower picture was the first picture. The top pic was second.  I know you don't build two left (port) sides/ Roll Eyes Shocked Grin

The port side of the fuse is more or less framed.  I modified the plan to make a slightly more robust frame.  I chose this model because I was fascinated by the shape of the fuselage and cowl.  Thus far the fuselage shape has met my expectation Cool

I have only been at Nunzio for a couple of days but the infectious desire to build has returned with gusto👍👍

I can find everything in the new garage shop.  This shop is not for modeling.  It is my basement model shop that has been dormant for about 10 months.  I will get back into the groove bit by bit Cool

Thrilled to see you back in action John!!
New shops are beautiful but hard to work in because nothing is where it was. I know the pain.
Your shop looks fantastic!! Bet you could build a full scale in there Grin Cool Cool Cool

Good to hear from you friend. .

Thanks Tom it is nice to be back at this again. Bending more wood today.  The flight balsa and the fuselage design make assembly difficult for arthritic fingers.  I am painting the wood with glue to harden it a tad.  I also hope to add more stringers to the fuselage design.  The 10 month delay in construction has produced a number of problems.  My arthritis has gotten worse, I have forgotten how to build models, and finding my tools and supplies is taking time because I have forgotten where I put them.

JohnO,

Great to hear from you again.  Welcome back and the best to you in the coming New Year!!!

The garage workshop is outstanding!!!  I'm sure there will be many other projects to come from there. 

Can't wait to see the Ansaldo come together.  Gonna be another great journey.  Got the hot chocolate ready and some sweet bread to pass the time! Smiley

Thanks. My models only fly from the ceiling.  I have no desire to see them fly thru the air and eventually crash.  I am happy with the way the shop developed.  This is not a model shop, just a garage work area. Cry

i'm fairly new  here, but your Aeroplanes are incredible.are you a display builder, or do you fly em'  too? i'm takin a  break from my PT-17 today.I'm not bored, just don't have the radio gear to install before I cover. I think I'm gonna resurrect this old Cub. I got all the electrics from a micro Spitfire that met an untimely end a couple weeks agi.

Great to see you again, and Happy New Year! I know exactly what you are saying as we have been away from it as well. I started a new job back in August and am just starting to get some time again.

BTW - workshop looks awesome!

Happy New Year.  Hope you all remember me.  I decided to complete this aeroplane. Dusting out the noodle trying to remember what to do and how to do it.  Formed the fuselage thins so I can commence its construction.  Also fabricated the cabane strut support wires.  The new garage work shop is about complete.

Great looking garage JohnO...

Glad things are progressing as per plans.  Hope you can get back to the Balilla soon.  Miss your posts.  I'm thinking about a bipe for my next build.

Gotta finish the Starship first.

Garage, fence, garden shed complete.  Garden planted.  Food plot at the cabin to attract Bambi in progress.  Model planes on hold until cold weather.  Insulated garage, peg board and work bench takes precedence.

JohnO,

Haven't heard from you in a while.  Hope the garage is coming along well and that you'll be able to get back to the Ansaldo soon. 

Best to you,
Tom
