Exactly. In ten years time I probably won't be so mobile.

The scenery in New Zealand looks great, and my great grandmother was born there, it might be nice to have a look at the place while I still can.

Oh and by the way Flyer, I do not consider myself to be a "great builder." All of my models have minor faults and some of them are over-weight. They all fly mind!

There you go letting the cat out of the bag, you can't tell that by looking at a picture. The "Great Builders" part it to fool the youngsters that pass through!

I'll say this for the French, they don't just complain and put up with higher prices and lower wages, once they've been pushed far enough, they take to the streets and governments have been made to listen. Mr Macron has apparently changed his mind about increasing fuel prices in 2019 so the demonstartions appear to have worked.

The previous government under President Hollande introduced a law which made it compulsory for all French motorists to keep florescent yellow waistcoats or "vests," "les gilets jaune," in their cars so that in the event of a breakdown they would be more conspicuous to other road users. How ironic that the protestors have adopted the gilet jaune as their own uniform!

In my little corner of rural France, some drivers leave a rolled up yellow waistcoat on the dashboard of their cars to show their support.

Speaking of Wills, I really need to update my Will. Too many changes have occurred and Iíve been a little lacks in this regard.

I have a few days of rain in the forecast. Heavy rain today. Iím going to take this time to make an overhead foam cutter and a mini cutter for my foam airplane build. I also have to move some dry firewood from the barn to the house. I have about a 2 day dry firewood supply by the house now. I never expected this rain. Also never checked for rain yesterday. Oh well!!!

Just finished a Baron I was building for the club secretary. He grew up in Belgium, hence the roundels.

Nice craftsmanship and finishing touches, looks sharp in the clear amber yellow covering. I didn't realise that the fuselage is built up. One could even expose the fuselage from back of wing to front of empennage, to give it an early WW1 antique look. No wonder why they fly so well on less powerful engines, aircraft is very light.
