I didn't really want to look straight down the barrels while photographing them......as you can see, they are loaded.

That's one of the advantages of a digital camera... you don't have to have your head behind the viewfinder.

(I'm not sure what it would take for me to deliberately look down the barrel of a loaded weapon. Man, that is tempting fate. )

Joe, looking good, great job on the fiberglass nose attachment. Make sure the stab and mounting is strong enough to take the downward pressure during hard launching.

My Sunday evening just got a whole lot better looking at those pics!

Nice work, and I'm very envious.

Wish we had a slope like that in Northern Indiana, but we do have a great dam in SE Indiana that has been used for LSF eight hour slope flights.

Sunday evening for Steve, Sunday morning for Ray, see ... that Steve is always way ahead of us.

Can you say super size me?? The reason I don't have the Osprey finished, a 150" Oly. For some reason the trans violet looks blue in floresent and over cast skies.
Still have a lot of pearl white and pearl yellow to put down, shape the rudder and elevator, sand and paint the fuse.
