Good observation Fizz

When I had the first one built Lyle said "pick a number". I guess I was suppose to pick a number and then request it?
Well I didnt. When I registered with the NMPRA they then assigned me 15D as my official number so I had that painted on the next plane.

SSAN, your bench racing needs work.

garys, the ole bell crank, classic move. Glad you're back safe and sound.

Gary S better be a little careful as the supply is limited this year...... but I am not opposed to a good bellcranking.... back to painting.

Travis Flynns AR6, He sent me a pic of an old F1 that Jim Shinohara built for him in the 80s and I kind of followed that. This really has the old days of F1 vibe.

Sam, I have no idea what you're talking about, but I can guarantee there is no way AJ or any other racers I know of would try to hack your site.

Beautiful bird DE, you da man. Always loved that Jimmy F1 color scheme with the painted horizontal.

I'm sure SuperT will do it up right on the pins too.

One of these days I'll have to build me one of those beautiful models, but for now... [&:]

The model in the picture is one of my first QM40 models. I'm installing a new wing and fitting parts.

I potted the wing and canopy tonight. Here are some pictures:

Sign me up. You're going down WC, been working on my reaction times all winter on this new Jeg's iPhone app.

Plus, I'll have Lyle bring the NOS bottle off his bike. Giddy-up Mini-van.

It is all different when you get staged up and have that 150 horsepower rumbling under your right foot...

Almost ready to load up and head to winterfest... will leave about 4 a.m. to drop off some toys.

I've been busy on Q500 models, but I did have time to squeeze in a coat of basecoat on the Stinger.

Eddie, is that Vendetta they one you got from me? Looks great either way.

Wish I could make it down.. The AR-6 prototype might be down there without me, we'll see.

Damn, it looks great.. Have you flown it much?

Well, the first paint job is going to be basic.. No sense putting in all that work if the thing doesn't fly.. Assuming it does, I'll have some ready for the Nats, I might spend some time on those..... maybe
