Between freshening race car engines and my dog having puppies, I got my balsa order opened and got the BOK 5 cowling laminated up. I MAY beat you yet! Smiley

Nope Ray it was actually a pretty old one, maybe you know Skip Kniley ? From times when people jumped without altimeters, helmets, shoes etc and low pulling was still considered to be a contest and some DZ called their landing area crater acre. The new generation is different they usually do themself in under canopy.

Still on the road with our main season going strong and not a rainy day in weeks.. looking forward to getting home and at my BOK-5 build Smiley

Hello Phillip, nice to see you, I use to be a skydiving instructor many, many years ago, retired from the sport now after making over 3000 jumps, never thought of myself as a meatbomb, that's pretty cool, never thought of that, must be the new generation of skydivers that came up with that.

Looking forward to seeing you builds.

Cheers, Ray K.

Put your electric conversions in our electric section...I look forward to learning from you and those micro units.  Any questions about the S&T models just ask, you'll find the modelers here are very helpful eager to share and learn.

Welcome Phillip...I think I used to follow your Micro foamies on the RCGroups Micro forum.  Was fun following your builds.  You have some real skills.  If you're the same guy, I really enjoyed your DC-3 model.  I think you used paper models as a pattern for your foamies.  Thanks for introducing yourself.

Welcome Philip. Nice finish on the Stinson and Waco. Hope that your parachute continues to open on schedule. Looks like you also do some R/C flying from that model in the background.

Hallo guys,

Im Phillip, and the slightly odd nick name comes from my profession. Iíve been a full time skydiving pilot flying Short Skyvans for a big European operator. And skydivers are sometimes a weird folk and call themselves meatbombs which makes me the meatbomber Wink

Iíve had a long phase where I didnít build anything after building micro foramies for a couple of Years and just last year got into stick and tissue building.
