Surely we can get a hold of a Ray Hayes in his younger days, its worth it to save the female eyes from my lanky uncoordinated Austral form. I even make Joe thermaler look like an Errol Flynn...

You mean there's hope, yet?

Sorry to be so absent, lately, gents. Health problems. I'm GOING to get started on my Oly II scratchbuild from plans in the VERY near future.

There are a few slopes out that way, but most, if not all are not easy to get to, and the terrain is very inhospitable, especially this time of year.(read: HOT!) Most of the soaring out there is thermal, but if you wanna slope, post a thread in the slope forum. The few sloper die-hards out there will be glad to help you out.

Gonna order my CF and a couple other goodies for the Paragon next week. Have not started any work on it yet, just been drooling over the plans.........

Thanks, Sean. They should all be better days from here out. (At least, for awhile. )

Finally got it covered, painted and assembled. Just wanted to show off a little, it might never look like this in the future. I got to go into the shop and finish machining my winch drum in the morning but I should be ready to fly her by late Saturday or early Sunday. the weather is anyones guess here in north central Indiana.

Beautiful Stevon!

Word of warning though, Hide that thing well from Hossfly72. He'll drive all the way up from Alabama and steal the thing with no remorse! The man is a cold blooded fanatic over Sagittas and cannot be trusted.

Sure!! Joke about a man's addiction Sean!!! I might as well go clunk him on the head and grab the plane though.... I already saved those pics for a future covering job!!!

That thing is hotter looking than Randy's women!! Well, maybe no that last one I met. And she WAS pretty easy going about me thermalling naked!



PS--- It looks good, but you shrank the covering too tight and it straightened out your polyhedral!

Sorry Hoss, but I just feel that it's my duty to warn the world of your evil ways.

Oh, by the way, it's obvious that there is no problem with the covering on this Sagitta and contributed nothing to pulling the Poly out of those wings. It's apparent that what you see is simply a trick of the eye. Probably the way the sun is hitting the subject, a mis-adjusted focal point, something of that nature. I mean, no one would flatten out those wings and make it a full house ship.....would they.......Stevon?

I have got to get the shop finished so I'll have a Man-Cave where I can build something this nice! I'm also going to have to break down and order some Sagitta 600 plans from RCM.
