Probably a Hacker 100 or something like that.

Well here is what I got done over the weekend and last night late. It turned out ok, and I still have the ignition and exhaust to do.

And it is crazy how many people follow my builds. I have had like 10 people reach out to me wanting to buy their sound systems, or send my samples to test, or build me a custom system.

Rock ON!!!!!

Oh my. Amazing how easy you make it seem to build a motor and how great it looks.

Of course Emma is growing by leaps and bounds. She holds your engine like a pro. Bet she helped some also.

Nice work. Staggers me how you can build to that quality and that size as fast as you do. My scratch builds are invariably standard sport plane size and they take me months and months.

Dag I couldn't help but notice the irony in the pic that has the KISS principle sign right above the set of wings that go to a four year scratch build.

Oh, yeah what magic potion in Illinois are you feeding your little girl, its seems like yesterday she couldn't hardly reach the counter top! It so cool you include your girl and family in your hobby. I'll keep watching with keen interest. Doug B

Shoot, it took me an afternoon to cover the h-stab, elevator, and rudder of my 53" Tritle Super Cub today, and you knock out a whole dummy engine in a weekend!

No worries, the US is big, Illinois is our next door neighbor state. But more corruption due to Chicago (just kidding).

Us yanks don't get it right about over the pond, I have some pals that live in Ramsbottom, one time we had all had a few to many and I was telling another friend about where they lived, I said I couldn't remember the city, to quote me I said "North of London about 2 hours... Goatsbut?" They all broke out laughing and said only a yank could get that soooo wrong

Cheers!!!!!!!

DAG

And then I see that dumb me see Mossi's and think your from the UK....... Then I remember you are all from Canada..... LOL
