Default Moving Day!

Yesterday was the big day. After spending the last few weeks painting the fuselage, it was time to get it out of my way, so off to the airport it went to join up with the canopy and some of the other already painted parts. Painting the tail stuff now, then will get the wings done. Looks like I might actually finish this thing sometime soon.

Don - looks like a great milestone. Can we call you "Torpedo" (given the look of the plane right now) ?

Yes, I would do it again. I would change a few things about the materials used, but all in all I would do it again.

Edit: What am I saying???? I am still doing it, lol
