Oran, I am taking pics as I build the Shrike you sent, but will post it as a build towards the end. I just simply wish I had more time in a day to work on it.

I NEED A VAC PUMP to finish the tails. No one is biting on the Trinity, even after a couple price drops, which I was counting on for the purchase of the pump and bits and pieces. I would rather not hand glass the tails when the pump is so close and in sight. They will come out so much nicer.

Jim and Karl are going to be coming down next weekend and we will do as much as possible in those 2 days, I don't know when the rest will be done.

Here is the progress I made on "Andy".

Sweet! Shrikes are just plain awesome Oran. Awesome!

I am a convert for life after just a few flights. Its the landing part that's hard. It doesn't help that I am so rusty after not flying much for a couple years.

The answer, build more Shrikes .

Oran, if you have an extra Shrike mold set lying around, ....well, I will gladly borrow it indefinitely.

Happy Mother's Day...

I tuned up my wing root jig and made a few before it broke and I had to make another, I am back up and running.

I made several out of paint sticks from Home Depot and now I am going to make some out of plywood...
