Default N410BL Build Update

Picked up the fuselage from the painter this morning, then watched OSU beat Michigan. What a great way to spend a Saturday! Wings should be ready in two weeks.

As for the OSH MI game, no comment!

That was the original plan. Unfortunately, I found out this past week I tore my achilles' tendon. I'm hoping to get as much as the final assembly done before my surgery in a couple weeks. First flight will have to wait until next year.

Congratulations Bob. Moving it to the airport is a big milestone and the paint scheme looks fabulous! Mine's in the paint booth now,,,,,,here at home and doing it myself, so there's no way its going to look as nice as yours.

OSU on the brain, OSH on the keyboard.

I think it is ok, two of my brothers who went to UoM married girls from OSU. I'm still trying to figure that one out.

Good luck with your surgery, I hope you have a quick and painless recovery!

Default Nice job with the paint!

Looks great Bob. I've been following your progress and I think you've got a pretty nice looking bird there. Get well.

That is looking great! Sorry to hear you will have to delay the maiden voyage...maybe the clean-up list will get a little shorter?
