Howdee Neighbor, I've flown over Medina many many many times. Maybe we'll run across each other down the road.

You'll like this, my closest friend was a lifer in the Navy. He was brought before the Mast for stealing the Captain's peanut butter. He was an Airdale.

Warm weather is coming, I think.
Mark

Really nice to meet the "detailed" Paul!  Glad you're on board with us!  Isn't it amazing the way we're all so diverse...and yet the same!  Truth is...that's the way people are all over this planet...or so I've come to realize. Now, if we could just get those politicians and diplomats interested in SnT.... Smiley

Happy building, Paul!  Wink

Little update. I've been building models for about 43 years on and off. Started with plastic than was introduced to U control 1/2A flying. Did some model building during my 10 year Navel career. Than life got in the way. Got back into the hobby in 93 when I was taken to the Kent State indoor meet and got the bug back to start building and flying free flight.  Was doing RC nitro but know I mostly build and fly electric RC. Hooked up with the Cleveland Free flight group and learned a lot from the well seasoned builders. I was one of the youngest guys in the group and still am. Unfortunately the club has disbanded do to lack of new younger members but we still get together during the winter months and have building sessions. I do not know alot about the history of aircraft but enjoy building and flying them. The members on here are full of knowledge and experience and are willing to help newer builders like myself. I'm glad to have found this sight and look forward to the fellowship that each and everyone here has to offer.
Paul
Aka shipwreck.
I got this Nick name from when I was in the Navy after the GI Joe character.

Great looking plane and it will be great to have full mobility again. Now you can build some more and post more.

Thanks Tom,
Go in tomorrow  to get the cast off and hopefully will not need another. Had a ball flying  since i build that plane 12 yrs ago and it was the first time it got some air over the wings.
