That looks great Don. I wish I could build that clean.

I found the sink on New Years. I'm pretty sure I was last in the postal competition.

Yeah, it was worth it too, I mean besides almost falling a few times while throwing the DLG and almost getting my car stuck in the ditch.

I was surprised no one else showed up. Man, my club is boring.

What a hoot! I thought while watching the video "Hell, he's frozen in place, and the video will continue til the battery quits!" then I saw your plane come into view. My hat's off to you for the endeavor.

Don

Joe and TD, I can't even imagine walking out into that kind of weather, let alone trying to fly in it. You guys are made from sterner stuff than we northern Australians, the only ice we see is on the TV, were it belongs.

Don, thats a fine, straight looking wing. !! - wanna swap wings dude? - that way you can go and maiden your OlyIII sooner! Think about it, no more waiting around and worrying over building etc, I'll even leave the servo's and wiring in for you, you send yours to me as is. Don't worry, i won't mind fitting them out and covering them, I'll do it without complaint.

What's all that white stuff TD? Looks messy. I didn't make it out today. I wanted to even though it was too windy, but the wife decided we were going to look for a house. I had sooooooo much time to fly when I was single!

LMAO, Thanks but no thanks Tyrone, I'm building these wangs and I'll do the smashin here . Still got a ways to go but I feel good about the next wing sheeting being just like the first. Tried to match the wood as well as possible but there was one inner panel sheet that I replaced. I'll have use for this plank in the future. Back to work tomorrow, thank God...

What ya talking about there Donnie? That so called game between Dallas and Philly? I ended up turning the channel because I hate seeing any team (Philly) get beat up so bad.

My Chargers had me worried on their game last night. Thought they were going to loose to the Skins just to keep their first stringers safe and healthy for the playoffs. I was glad to see that even the second and third stringers can win a game. Since the game wasn't on the TV here I had to listen to it on-line. If they do make it to the Super Bowl I'm glad that there's very little chance of the weather being like it was the last time they made it. The Polar Bowl

Now.... Back to our regular balsa building programming.....
