Dohrmc, sounds like you've been busy Shocked I need to do the same to my work area, but my allergies have really been bad for the past week, so know cleaning at the moment. Congrats on your upcoming retiring date. I would love to see your carved prop, something that escaped me for the time being.

Bob

I have to carve the prop and she will be ready to go. I have not been building the last couple of days. This is heresy, I know, but I have been cleaning up my hell hole of a shop. It was really bad, even for me. I tossed a lot of junk, and although I am not yet done, I can walk across the room without stepping over stuff. I also am very close to having two long tables ready to go for the repairing and building I will be doing over the winter season. I have big plans. I am finally retiring in Nov, and will have more time to devote to having fun.

Nope! Was an SMU and Cowboys fan years back, but football is not in my system since LANDRY was let go. Angry

How close is the AXE to flying?

Tom, I did a test glide to the bed and she flew straight. The true test will be outdoors with the wind Shocked

Still need to vac the canopy then it will be finished.

WoW Bob...she really pops on that blue background.  Nice job of photography there.  The model looks marvelous!  Bet she flies as good as she looks.

Thanks for the kind words, but my fuse is not as square as your AXE.
