Settling in...

We have moved and been in our new home for a month or so. I have decked our attic and we are beginning to actually be able to see the garage floor! Seriously, we have a lot to do to be settled, but I took a break this past weekend to attend TNT and see a lot of friends. It's always great to see everyone. A man isn't much if he doesn't have friends...

My niche in the hobby world always seems to revolve around building, and designing. Admittedly, I am not much of a designer. I am OK at seeing other folks ideas and incorporating them into my stuff. I have been exposed to some of the best ideas, going alll the way back into the '70s. That has given me some level of infamy... but more importantly... made me a lot of friends...

Todays materials and techniques are really beyond the scope of the average builder, but some of this stuff is actually quite doable. So, don't be surprised if you see me out with some new stuff. Granted, it will not be finished models, but parts, short kits, etc. should be available within a couple of years... or...

I was musing about fuselage designs while at the TNT, and it kind of hit me. A kit manufacturer back in the '80s made some stuff that the builders all loved. The models had a hybrid glass/wood fuselage and they flew well, looked good, and seemed to last. With todays materials, and some of todays techniques, this form of fuselage would be a fit... maybe...

Anyway, look for a build thread early next year for the wood version of the Houston Hawk fuselage... and who knows what after that...
