More Drama......and more modelling downturns...

As I intimated previously, some rather severe health issues affected the person closest to me in life and resulted in nearly two months in hospital for my wife with severe heart problems. All very disturbing and faith-rattling! - faith in myself to handle all this drama But we have turned the corner albeit somewhat shakily, and have made minor dabbles back into model building.

First task on returning to the shed after several months absence was to finish off a rather quickly built Ryan PT-22. Peter Rake's prototype build had fallen through it seems so I tentatively offered my model as a substitute - warts and all! This, of course, meant having to finish it off properly with a spinner, windscreens, rigging etc - stuff I'd probably not got around to.

The biggest event in recent weeks was the demise of my 1/4 scale BUSA SPAD A failed aileron servo was to blame and it took the wind out of my sails completely. Mostly doubts about my ability to cope with this sort of drama right after the family health issues - but I survived and am currently surveying the 2 or 3 unfinished jobs to find inspiration! I hope I do. Soon!
