What's on your bench?

It's winter. So, what are you folks building for next season?

Just finished a NEO DLG and an Art Hobby Thermic so far. Have another 2-meter German glider (that shall remain nameless) that's next up on my bench.

It's very quiet around here. Isn't anyone working on anything?

Working on a DJ Aerotech Chrysalis HLG that I am turning into a electric. I can't physically do a DLG glider so this is as close as I get. It is a 1.5 meter all wood RE glider. For $50 it seems like a good deal so far. I am almost done with the wing and on to the fuse probably next week. It is hard to work at the bench when it is 60 degrees outside and light winds. I went and flew my Radian instead of sitting at the bench. Maybedrive a little farther and fly my Oly2 tomorrow, sorry my Canadian flyers.

New UAV design for my day job. A couple new flavors for our Chrysalis family. Some fiddles that need some serious TLC. A 32 string Celtic Harp I designed for my wife. The new mandolin I designed for me.

As soon as my workshop is completed, I will rebuild my 134" Bud Riser, again. After that it may be the 2 meter Cherry or restoring my 140" Legion Aire.

Any pictures?

Here are mine:


Thermic (with flaps):

and this one shows the slight increase in EDA that I built for a bit more stability (stock version was said to have too little dihedral):
