Hi Terry.  Thanks.  The wheels have plain 1/64th ply plates in the center, but no relief.  Laurie did them freehand with a silver sharpie.  My hands are just way too shakey for that.  I'll pass your compliment along.

Thanks Tom, for the kind words.  I'll pass them along to Laurie. Smiley

Now, if I can just get the rest of it done! Tongue

I agree those wheels turned out real nice.  Are the rims painted only or was relief added then paint?  They are that convincing.

Finally got to do some work on the Flea.  Wheels are done.  I liked the look of the old Veco wheels so I copied them in balsa.  Wife Laurie did the silver rim and spokes on them, turned out pretty nice.

Also got the fuselage and rudder covered.  No real drama there, as there are no compound curves.  Just five pieces, although covering under the dummy engine was interesting. Wink

Now, on to the wings.........

Terry, loved the flight video!  Wonderful!  Congrats on the successful flight. Smiley

Bob, the Bullet looks excellent.  I'm really liking the black and yellow. Smiley

Not much progress on the Flea.  Life and work keep intruding.  Made a pair of wheels, on my little chinese hobby lathe, that I'm pretty happy about.  Pics to come.....

Pete, you are funny. A DT would deprive the child who finds the Bullet of experiencing FF and me of the fun that I gain in building another. Honestly, I did not plan for a DT and at this juncture I am not sure what type would work on this low wing.

Bob,
the BULLET is gonna fly away with that glider size wing!  Good lookin' plane just waiting for its whirlygig (and maybe some form of DT?).  You might not want to fly near a field of dandelions, tho Grin.

Terry,
the CANON is somewhat outdated - especially in video mode with the very low video resolution available - but pretty darn good, considering.  One thing I never liked about the Canon digital cameras up thru about 2007, tho they were photographically great, was the restricted video shoot time of 180 seconds.  Your "CLOUD" also looks like it will need a DT Wink.

Terry, if you're able to edit (delete or otherwise modify) your PhotoBucket files as you've stated, you probably have the "keep me logged in" box checked and/or you don't clear your browser cache when you log off the I'net (that "cookie" thing).  This means that as soon as you DO open your browser you're logged in and can do any and everything.  Convenient, but the most insecure method of operating - I have my browser configured to "clear cache and all cookies" when closing/leaving my I'net session (and I run the FireFox browser).  ALL browsers have this config. capability.  You CAN, however, leave the stay-logged-in box checked which will allow you to access the files at any time DURING the actual I'net sitting (when not checked, when you leave the page to go to another site, you'll get logged off - unless you use another tab).


I think this is what you've been dealing with.  Pete hit the nail right on the head, I think!

Bob...the Bullet is looking fantastic!  Love the colors!  Should be easy to track in the air and deep grass! With that wing it looks like it won't want to come down!

I just placed the flying surfaces on the fuse to get an idea of what it may look like when finished.

Terry, while you and Pete get the video/photos straightened out I will just learn from the post so that I may be able to come up to yalls level. I do learn from what I have read and it has helped me immensely.

Some more progress photos of my Bullet:

The way to restrict files in PB is to create albums.  Simply "create" an album and call it (example) "My FF Sport Models" and another called maybe "FF Scale Models" etcetera.  You can then create sub-albums for individual builds.  All albums/sub-albums can contain both video and photo files.  You can toggle access permissions as "public" or "private" at any time using the edit function (IIRC).  Normally, if you post a link to a file in a "private" area, anyone who is not provided with an access key will get an error message.

Be aware that ANY change to a file in PhotoBucket (location, name, or any editing) WILL break the link

I have all of my albums "public" as I wish to make what I've placed there available to everyone.  Private stuff goes on an external HD or thumb drive.

Clear as mud?  What camera are you using?


Pete, that's all pretty clear though I'll have to have a look for the "keep me logged in" setting.  I know this is the way society has gone and it's probably all in the user agreements most of us don't read.  It's just too bad the default settings favor less security,  and caught me by surprise in this case.  I did find the public/private switch for albums in Photobucket.

My camera is a Canon PowerShot G3.  Not up to modern standards but has been pretty good for still's.

My apologies to all for wandering off the cook-up topic so much.

Terry
