The wife hates it when I cover in the house. But it is starting to come together. Thoughts?

1. Go outside, it looks nice out there? The glass top of the patio table is great to work on, being perfectly flat.
2. Have your wife get involved and help?
3. Go to your girlfriends house?
4. Paint instead of covering? She will leave you then and you can have your girlfriend move in and build anyway you want.

JUST KIDDING?

Maybe this a monoline bi-directional control line variant?

"What the deal" with your avatar?

Those are the push-rods for the bomb release mechanism.
We have contests on who can come closest to hitting a target.
Thought I would build these in.
I've had them on a couple of planes.

Wow, resurrected thread.
You may have to explain your question, I am not getting the gist of it.
There are a couple of Wanderers listed on the other site, right now, if anyone is interested.
