It's been a long time since I've made a blog entry...mostly 'cause I had nothing really cool that I wanted to share...'til now.

I recently finished my 35% Wild Hare Giles G-202. It is a v1, 93" Giles in the red and white scheme. You can tell from the pics that I modified the original color scheme by removing the 'feathers' and adding a custom set of graphics. Thanks go out to my friend Chelsea Engberg out in California. Her "Go Inverted!" website was the inspiration for the color scheme. Please check out over the next few months to see what Chelsea is up to, and order some swag when she gets her stuff up and running. I also want to thank Eric at B&E Graphix for his work on the vinyl, they all came out great and his customer service is beyond reproach; and finally, to Mike Borger for shooting the photos. He is a master behind the lens.

My first foray into playing with Windows Movie Maker. Just a slide show with the U.S. Army "ARMY STRONG." theme song in the background.

Here are some pics of MiG fighters that are located here on Balad Airbase, Iraq. These have all been damaged pretty bad, but I'd say (without climbing around on them and looking real hard at 'em) that there are some good componenets left on 'em.

Grafitti bandits tag'd them pretty good as you can see.

Sorry, I cannot go climbing around on them to get any other pics. I wanted to get out of there before someone came over and told me to leave.
