I hope so too, but I have resigned to the knowledge that I will get some stuff ups, but they will make the next one better

Andrew's been kinda quiet lately, telling everyone that he's been busy with work. The reality is that he has been spending all his time working on the fully-moulded Scratcho. He's made another wing (wasn't happy with the infusion results from last time), and knocked out a new tail and fuselage, then headed over to Tekapo for a few quick test flights last weekend. He reports that it flew so well, it felt like it was a dream.

Here's a happy snap after the successful maiden. Great effort AvB

Yeah sorry, just messing around

We're close to finishing the modelling of the fuse and tail feathers, and I couldn't resist photoshopping in an old Tekapo background to the latest CAD image. I figured it would get AvB fired up to get it all done before the next NZ DS Fest !

Geoff did an excellent job grafting the Scratcho model in! It looks like a rather large Scratcho as he had to scale it up to cover up the Shockwave! Very clever. Looking forward to cutting the moulds for those new shaped tail feathers, making parts and putting together the first curvy Scratcho!

Haven't had any decent shed time for quite a while now ... Amy plane building efforts have been confined to intense daydreaming. Hoping to get back into it. Yes the NZ visit is a motivation ... !
