Sorry if this has been commented on but at over 13 thousand posts this is a long, but great thread. I have just started reading it in the past month. Has anyone tried to make a summary thread? As I was reading through it I thought it might help others who are new to the thread like me.

I was thinking an editor could create a new closed thread that would eliminate the redundant, off topic and unneeded comments. They could also add summarys to consolidate and just speed the process of catching up with the build to this point. If they downloaded the whole log they could rip it down to 1000 comments in a few days and repost it as a closed log.
Just a idea that might help. Again awsome, increadable thread an good luck!!!!!

Hey Dag, when you bring EII to SEFF, promise that you'll bring some picture of the 36 along for us to drool over.

I usually just skip to Damon's posts and a couple on either side of them to skim forwards. While this thread does wander a little bit, especially when Damon is busy doing other things, it does have some great people who post good techniques, questions, information about the full scale aircraft.

It kind of adds to the thread I think. In a literary sense, it makes the story a little richer

If you want the highlights, "View all pictures in thread" and go to the posts that capture your attention.

I have skimmed to Dag214's comments and done the picture review also. The extra comments are helpful but I think a larger audience could be created if a downsized summary where created. To some it's like starting "War and Peace"...a book I never read!
I would love to do it but I am new and wouldn't know what/how to edit or consolidate.

Yeah it has grown out of control. At one point we all tried to keep it on topic, but with me taking so long, and with life, other projects just very hard. I have never started a project that didn't fly or crash. Never had one that became a hanger queen...

I attempted to do updates in video-
Convair B-36 257 inch History P1 (14 min 55 sec)

Convair B-36 257 inch History Part 2 (13 min 47 sec)

Convair B-36 257 inch History Part 3 (14 min 56 sec)


I have always wants on the first page to put links to major parts of the thread, but everyone's comments are now just as important as the almost 2 million views.... And I am not retired and don't have any extra time so keeping this thread going just takes time....... In someways I wish I never started the thread as I could care less about the size of the audience, I only care that someone thinks that this info is helpful to them.... If only 10 were following and never commented it would be just as cool if 50 were following... The cool thing to me that is priceless is the cool pals I have meet here, and the few manufactures that have spent a ton of time with me, and helping me with some huge challenges. Hacker, Castle, Thunder Power, Glennis, Tru-Turn and MANY others have been 125% unreal....

Rock ON!!!!

Most the pictures are here, and I have over 900 gig of pictures now, so I am not ever sure which ones someone has not seen. I may still get the 36 to SEFF but really doubt it, this year I am bring my junker aero biplane, PZ F4U, a heli, and the EII.

This year at SEFF I want to have no worries and just hang with my pals and fly.

I may dump a ton of pictures on my Ipad.....

Rock ON!

Sorry. Half the charm is the off-topic stuff. Your thread has taken a major undertaking of an immense project that generates huge interest, and has taken on a life of its own as a little dag-following-b-36 (and Emmaselle) community. I took the time to read the whole thread, yes it takes a long time to get caught up on, but the asides are usually interesting, the encouragement to each other is heartening, and the updates are exciting. But that's just my 2 cents.

I'm not saying anything derogatory, just saying that life has a way of getting in the way of things we want to do....
