Man what a horrible day I've had . They made me walk amongst a field littered with old airplanes,taking pictures.
LOOK ! I didn't want to be here ! I hope they never make me do this again !
Okay , I'm just kidding..Today's Chili Fly-in at Massey Aerodrome.

That 195 looks like my friend's plane - was it flown by an old guy with white hair and a pocket protector?

Ha Ha.These planes are on the East Coast in Maryland..Both pilots are white haired,but I didn't notice a pocket protecter.
Which one looks like his ? Red or Blue ?

Hehe... the red one. He probably didn't fly out there, but he does go to fly-ins all the time. The PA-12 looks like the little ARF one I have too. Looks like a fun event

Please advise the owner of the Great Lakes that I'd be happy to give it a good home...

We don'twant to get too far from Tom's thread here,but sometimes it's fun just to look and remember.
I liked the landing gear on the Great Lakes,a scaled down version of the Fairchild Tom's about to start, I think.

That's N87G, a 1985 Great Lakes 2T-1A-2. Guess the gear is tried and proven...

Again, I'd love to give it a loving home...

As of now, I consider the Airmaster complete. I applied the final trim tape this morning. The batteries and gas tank are mounted under the seats.

At this moment, the batteries are being cycled. The G-38 needs to be run, but I don't anticipate any problems.

I'll get final pics when I take her to the field, for taxi tests and possible maiden.

Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions, questions, and support. It makes doing these build threads worthwhile.
