Not such a good summer...

This summer has not been very good on the home front. My father-in-law past away from COPD. It was a two month battle that drained him and all of us.

Now my father is in the hospital for the same thing. Although he is not doing to bad, he is also not doing real well. Every time things start looking up something else causes another problem. We spend as much time with my father as we can and pray every day that he will get better.

My flying time has been almost zero as well as my building time. I will get back to this blog and posting updates. I am just not sure how soon. For all of you that keep checking back from time to time, thank you.

The Blue Devil flies!

Well it has been a long time coming, but my blue devil (demon) had it's maiden flight today. The winds were very strong today, OS 46 LA wide open into a head wind and the plane just sorta hovered! That is some serious wind!

I am adding a few more photos of her. You will see some strips got added to the left wing when I got home. Seems an all blue plane is tough to tell direction with from a distance! LOL

Ok, so it's not a spad...

or a plane for that matter. It is called a "Pintail 12" and is in the footy class of sailing. Figured i would show you what I worked on over the winter months.


It has been some time now since I have posted into my blog! The combat plane pictured below is completed. Sadly the blue devil is not. However, I do now have all the items I need to finish. Someday soon.

I should be a bit more active now. 2007 has proved to be busy.

Happy flying!
