If you look at hip pocket, he is still on there and was active today, so unless someone is masquerading as him, I'd say he's still kicking... Smiley

I know Old Man Winter sent a severe final blast through his neck of the woods.
Hoping it's just downed lines of communication from the ice storms and heavy snow.

That would be nice,
normally he is very active and now almost a whole fortnight without any postings. He does not reply to email either.
Lets hope he just lost is internet connection.

Beautiful work, Richard! And I agree with you that a compliment from ANY of the "regulars" on this forum is high praise indeed- we help each other grow on every build.

Thanks for the nice comment Howard - really means a lot to me, coming from a master kit builder and master flyer like you.   Smiley

The infill and wood stain give that Rufe a very "craftsman" like appearance.  Reminds me of an extremely detailed model of a steam locomotive, done in different hardwoods, that I saw at the Smithsonian, very unique and very well done!

     Oh, I am staying with it Mike   Cheesy  - don't you worry about that - I just need to grumble about it a bit.    Undecided    Well, if you have never seen staining on infill planking and wing sheeting, here is a few pics of my Jap Zero Float Fighter 16" Guillow kit.  It is also in my Hangar here   http://www.stickandtissue.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1498484324/0  ; starting on Reply #9   This took forever as there were two fuselages to infill plank - one for the real fuse, and one for the main center float, which was really like doing another fuse.  "American Walnut" stain for the wings,  and "Golden Oak" stain for the fuse and floats.  It is rubber powered, and I intended it to fly, but alas, it weighs 77 grams.    Lips Sealed
     I will not stain the D5 with such dark colors though.  I will use the clear "Natural" stain for the fuse, and the prop will be stain painted with a very thin brush between the grain lines with two light colors, made from mixing one drop "American Walnut" to 9 drops "Natural", and the other alternate color between the prop grains will be two drops "American Walnut" with 8 drops "Natural" - that is the plan - of course, I will test out these color mixes first on some scrap balsa.  Wink

Stain...the human stain...?

Quality is in the hands of the master...nice work, Rick.  Bet the Pope told Michael that his work was on a par with Leo...ya think?  Left-handed compliment.

Quality seems to take forever but glad to see you are staying with it, looking really good. My Gee Bee took a long time and nearly sanded through in a couple of places. Really looking forward to seeing how the stain comes out. I think this will be a first, at least for me to see.
