Best regards.

A really handy tool I use is a syringe. The plastic disposable type with long tapered snout. These don't have the threaded socket for medical needles. Also, I keep a plastic cup with water in it. Between building sessions I just stand the syringe in the cup and the water keeps the glue from curing and stopping up the syringe.

Quite aerodynamic, extremely low drag with a potential for generating tremendous lift.

Another tool I have used to control the application of Titebond in tight spaces is a small watercolor paintbrush. The paintbrush makes it easy to control both how much glue is applied and exactly where it is applied. After a gluing session, the glue washes out of the brush in a couple of seconds under running water.

This is what I use to apply glue. Works in pretty tight spots. You can blot up extra with paper towel if you are really trying to get something clean.

Sweeeeeet pic Glen, oops, I mean picS Glen . She's a real keeper there Steve and the plane's not so bad either . Really, Slopey looks great in the air, congrats on the build and successful flights.

OMG, why did I do it . I'm totally ragged out today. I had Metallica in-the-round for dinner last night. The T-Shirt only cost me $32.00, 100 million brain cells and partial hearing loss. These guys know how to ROCK! My head hurts...

So, your repeated reply today is "HUH?"

Regarding the glue comments....for my Titebond I load up a slightly diluted mix in my veterinarian syringe and detatchable needle. I ground the sharp tip off that needle to prevent me from getting glued together. With the larger needle cleaning is not quite the problem of a smaller one.

Loco motion on that airframe of Steve's!

Yeah, I'm definitely too old for this stuff Steve but it was a good show. Matt, the buddy of mine I told you about that passed, bought these tickets before he died. His mom found the tickets in his room and brought them to us. We had to go in his honor, I know he would have wanted us to .

Irresistible!

Only have a few moments at the moment, I will do my best to add more later this evening. This is the little plane the Borg and I are starting. He will try to make progress while on the road in the truck, and I will try to make progress on my OLY 3 (and try to not let this get in the way of finishing up the OLY.)

Now there's a catchy name for a hand launch glider...."Woodchuck". I like it.

Took the JDLBSP to our monthly club meeting last night. Lots of "OHS and AHS." Won model of the month.

Still standing by for improved weather (less wind) so David and I can maiden this beauty.

Congrats on Model-of-the-Month Gerald!!! I'll bet there were lot's of comments, it's a beautiful ship, no doubt. I'm afraid there'll be no flying here this weekend, wind and rain are on the venue .

Maybe you can catch up to me on the OLY 3 build a little Don, since there won't be any flying there this weekend. Just hoping.

One of the things that attracted us to the Woodchuck was its similarities to the OLY 2S and 3. 3014 airfoil, D-box leading edge and built up trailing edge. It is small enough to be reasonable to build in a truck on the road and can be packed in a small container and flown just about anywhere, anytime that is convenient. The downside is it is TINY! 1/32 sheeting for the D-box and built up T.E. Oh Well. Can't have everything. More pics of the fuse construction later.
