Well this is one of those things most of us just dream about. However at my young age of 25 i may not ever get this chance again. You see there is an aviation museum being built here in vincennes. I will be working on a WWII C-47 transport plane tomorrow, if we can. I wish we would have worked on it today. but who knows what the weather will do. But anyway here are a few teasers i took today.

Well i was able to finish up covering the plane tonight. Need to put all the gear in the fuse, mount the engine and gas tank, fix and cover struts and do final adjustments. i think it will be a very nice plane. Hopefully will get to fly with my dad this fathers day weekend although they are calling for rain. Finger's crossed.

Well no real progress yet been trying to move. I did build a new work table for the new room. measures 6 foot by 30 inches with a foam sheet top. Should make things nice and easy. I will be getting a new plane one of the Pheonix Models Sukhoi SU-31 .46 size. Will be powered by my trusty magnum 70. Im pulling everything out of the mustang. Its a nice plane but just too many problems with the wing. Will be building a new wing this winter. trying to get the citabria finished hopefully will fly it in two weeks. But for now nothing much to show. Itching to fly again.
