Wow, that's fast.
It's taken me almost a year to get to that stage with my Red Ripper.

Well , bit of a slack attack tonight I'm afraid . Only got the tail feathers for the Bomber done and glued the wing for the Playboy together so it's ready for covering . Was hoping to get the pylon made and mounted for the Bomber as I have to go out with my lady on Sunday ,so no build time . Might be another long one tomorrow night to catch up . Was hoping to be able to build a Red Ripper for the Burford event but might have to settle for a Spacer, as would take a day to kit it as I've never built one before

Geoff, Is the Bomber kit Ben Buckle or is it Belair or an American short kit?

Wow, you are fast!!! You put me to shame.
Plastic or dope and silk?
A Nelson in an old timer....maybe tear the wings off.
Myself, I'd save the Nelson for a Quickie or Formula.

Just got up to have breakfasts and then off to Darling Harbour for the day ,my lady is into Dragon Boat Racing (full size) . No BE ,neither of them ,they are both cut by my friend Dave Brown out here ,he does all our old timers for us ,just ribs and tips and ply ,the rest is up to you ,with a plan to what ever size you want of course . Will be covered in very thin laminating film and then Polyspan over the top ,doped and heat shrunk John . I'm nowhere near as fast as I was 12 months ago John ,I could build 10. of these in 18 days a few years ago . One doesn't get to2000 ft in 25 seconds if one doesn't go quick I'm afraid and that's what's needed to compete in duration out here , I also hope (ha ha )to get a 112 % Playboy done for my new Nelson 45 but is a back burner job at the moment .
