For my planes I like to use the 60/40 rule, if your over 60 you can get as close as 40 feet to look at the plane. Mine look good from a distance but I've learned to hide things over the years. Looking good Captain

Nice job Captcrunch44, it looks great! Boy, you are building in style; flat panel TV, microwave. If I had that I would never venture upstairs!

I don't know about that Vince, she is bound to cook something you really like and the smell would draw you out!

Have one of those too. I store my CA in it. And Arizona ice tea, and water. If I put anything else in there, I may never leave.

For a new one check the ads when school is about to start all the college kids buy them; for a used check the ads when school ends and all the college kids want to sell them.

Working in my cement floored basement, in my bare feet, I glued my foot to the floor when I stepped on a drop of CA. A razor blade was in reach, and I was able to slice between my skin and the floor. I wore shoes after that.

I used to build houses and work in a factory, I never do anything barefooted except in the shower, or um, yeah, you know, wink wink, nudge nudge. I don't even wear slippers in the shop cause you never know if a blade will fall off the bench.

Flew the Rascal 168 today, had a dead stick, hopefully my cowl mods resolve it and I can fly it longer and actually land under power instead of hot rodding it in.
