Bret, when you click on Reply to leave a message or to post here, the window opens up where you start typing. Right across the top of the text box where you type, you should see a menu bar of icons. So you type your message, then click on the icon for "Insert Image". It's a little yellow square with a mountain top in it. Then paste your URL into the window for where your image is located and click "OK". You should see the URL of your image in between some brackets show up in the text box. Then I always hit "Preview Post" down below to make sure it shows up, before posting.

Here's your photo of your fabulous paint job. Wow! Nice work! I only wish mine to come out half this nice:

All the parts and pieces should be going to the paint shop first thing in January, a couple of weeks of paint, a month or so of final assembly and then it should be ready to go. Its starting to get exciting.

Default Made it to the airport !

This weekend the RV went for its first ride all the way to Paine Field ! With borrowed truck and enclosed trailer, the move went without a hitch. Even though snow flurries started as Bekah and I got to the airport. The plane is now safe in its permanent home and I have a long cold winter of work ahead of me. First flight this spring ? ? Hope so !

That's great Chad!! Drive to Dallas so I can borrow your trailer to take mine!

(BTW, your flag is backwards. Not trying to be flippit, just didn't know if you knew )

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't know there was a formal way to lay the flag on a wall, but I do want to make sure its done right.

I was going to wait till 2013 to ask, but how's that build going anyway? :-P :

Talking Rolled the canoe

Last night, I finally reached another of those big build milestones...with my wife's help, we finished some riveting and then rolled the fuselage over. I'm sure I'll be flying in just a few more weeks

Default Ode to Wing Stands

Today I take my right wing to storage and so end this phase of the build. My fuse kit was supposed to ship this week, but I haven't heard anything from the mother ship, so I may have to make a call to them today.

Since the world didn't end today (so far at least) I was feeling somewhat nostalgic about the wing stands that are left over. They've been a fixture in the garage for a year. I'll probably spend some time this weekend, before family arrives, to take them down. I decided to write an Ode to Wing Stands. I hope you enjoy.



Ode To Wings Stands
Done. Lonely. Mute. There you stand, proud, tall and strong. Your lifes burden finally relieved with the final resonant clunk of the last squeezed rivet. Though Douglas Firs before you have had nobler livlihoods, none before has so executed their charge with your poise and silent grace. Metal?s braggadocio of its strength is often tiresome to bear, but your wooden fortitude and charm were more than a match. Never will those wings remember that it was wood that made them come to life. Your job complete it is time to rest. The only sign of your existence, holes in the ceiling that spackle will hide but never truly fill. Dried and impossible to remove adhesive from the floor that I will trip over each time tread that path. Your body will lie in state stretched across ceremonial attic joists, there to slumber dreaming of what the future may hold secure in the knowledge that wood is not safe to burn in a gas fireplace.
