Just figured I would show ya'll the current progress on the building. All the little stuff will KILL YA!! Geesh!

However, we are done with electrical, and nearly done with all the trim on the outside. In a day or two we will start painting. I started sheeting the inside walls today. You cant see it, but the roof is done on top now. Looks just like the roof on the bay windows.

There are still a million things left, but, it should be up and functioning in the next week or so. Finally. I spend all my off time working on this thing.

I got back from my R&R leave the other day and, well, nothing had been done on the building for the 24 days I was gone! Soooooo.... after taking a morning "off" to get back into the time change, I rounded up some Joe's and got to work.

We added some of the "molding" to the sides, built a door and door frame, and put in the windows two days ago. Yesterday, we did squat! Nothing at all. Then today, well, its roof time. So, we got quite a bit done with 3 of us, and occasionally a 4th would jump in and help.

Dennis and I are the main designers/engineers/builders/ everything else. But, we have a few, like our 1SG and one of the E-7s from the Battalion staff, who are always willing to lend a hand where ever its needed.

Anyway, more to follow in a few days so you can all see our progress.

So, I now have a nice E-Maxx added to my "garage" over here in Bagram. I got the Durango body back at home and the wife and I painted it one evening. Simple, but it looks nice... for now!

Then, when I saw the UH-60 body for my Blade CX, I HAD TO HAVE IT!!! So, I put that on tonight. Still flys like a blade cx, but looks cooler! I mean really, who dosnt like a Black Hawk??

And as an added bonus, you get to see my bed! Lucky devils! Usually it takes at least 3 beers before someone gets to see my bed! lol (just kidding wifey!).

See ya'll later!

Well, the wife is horribly allergic to nitro exaust fumes, so I decided I may as well put my favorite plane up for sale. My 60" Cermark Pitts S2B. I listed it in the fuel planes area. Hopefully it will sell while Im gone.

Guess I will get another one after I return and build it electric.
