Love it Captain!

As for the vid I posted: I like the scene where the Osprey shakes off water in mid-flight.

G Don, here is where I am at for now. I'm not sure I love the gold arc on the wing but it is only taped on for now. We'll see how I like it in the morning. Maybe a gold pinstripe instead of white around the open bay area. I have plenty of time to figure it out, we just got 6 inches of fresh snow. What I really need is a good hot rod pinstriper to lay down some nice arcing pinstripes down the fuse and flowing out into the wings.

For the animal lovers out there, the antler on the wall is a naturally shed antler I found one winter in the woods. I only wish I could have found the other one.

Hi Wayne

The black over the sheeting is looking real nice, i just had some striping done on a project and used 2 stripes a thick and thin.

You could use 1/8" in red on the black & white seam and use a 1/16" in gold either on the white or the black with a small gap in between..

I'am just linking up with a new pinstriper myself, as my friend Bob Iverson passed on and he is going to be hard to replace as he was a great guy and talent too.

Finding the good talent and right attitude is hard to find but they are out there just takes awhile to search one out.

I'am making me a 3' by 6' shop sign that needs engine turned gold & silver leaf and some striping too and it looks like this new fellow is the right guy for the job from what i have been told about him, plus he runs a 47' chevy panel truck gasser now and remembers my b/gassser from the old days so it is a good link up for us both since we both have some passion for the old gassers [ 50's & 60's style ]

Hellow Mr. RC Groups web guy

Please put the open the pictures thing back the way you had it before, now it is just more stuff to do and a pain in the neck.

Was very simple before just 2 clicks and that was it, now you have to open a window then do more stuff.

Can you please keep it simple for us P/C limited people to use.

Thanks very much , G Don

Your Raven is looking great Wayne! Like you I'm unsure about the gold arc on the wing. Seems to be a tad to thick for the lines of the wing IMHO. The over all lines of the plane are beautiful and you've done a dynamite on her. I can't wait for you to get some good weather and get us a flight report.

I've got to do some wrenchin on Robis' F-150 for her today then it's back to learning this CAD program. It only does 2-D drawings but it should be good enough for making building plans so I can get some of these designs out of my head and down on paper. I need to clear out some of the memory banks so I've got room for more crazy ideas...

Well I got the work on the truck done as well as cleaning up and tightening the last two wings in the hanger after all the moving around. Have three planes ready to go out and do me some flying as soon as I can get the wind blowing in the right direction. Found a road up to the southern slope but need the wind in the right direction. Still looking for a way up to the top of the bowl across the highway and if I do that's going to be the best spot for flying. From the road up to the top of the bowl is about 400 feet so it should make for some good lift in light conditions.

Wayne, the Raven is looking awesome!

Funny how trends come and go, like the Cap's latest the Raven is looking to do some tight upward spiraling.

Hey Jeff, nice piece of shading you are planning there, you is gonna need it in the Arizona summer I would venture to guess. Love to see plan preliminaries so consider me a subscriber to please. Cheers!

Hey has anyone ever seen a Peacock flying? here's a pic someone sent me. Pretty bird, not much taken to thermaling though, I believe..

We been restoring old furniture around here, and making our own from scratch too, so it's all wood. Humidity and weather has been bending the laminated radiate pine what a pain!

Lovely peacock, Steve, and the furniture too!

I've been feeling very, very unmotivated today. I MUST get the BoT finished, and I'm sooo close. I don't feel good, though. Really blue. Gr.
