Default Wow... been along time for this...

Normally living in the NE Ohio, winter is for building and TLC. Tonight I have my DV8R ready for spring, and the whole workshop is clean! Cant ever remember when the last time my workshop was spotless and organized. Gonna be a long wait till the new jet gets here in march. What do you past time with nothing to do in the workshop? Cant even tell the wife I'll be in the basement when she wants other things to do.

Guess Ill get out the electric heli and chase the dog around the house!

Hi Frank....
I hate to make you feel bad but my F-15 is comming along GREAT......
Since I spoke to you on the phone the 3rd box arrived. Customs finally released it.
You will be happy with your FEJ twin. There is a few issues but not too bad.
I found out 1 thing though...........
If you take off of work,,, sit in the front window every day including Sundays,,, and wait for USPS to show up,,, It will get here sooner. Ask me how I no.
Good luck Frank and enjoy your new model.

Hoss

If you have some free time..... you could always come and give me a hand. It's summer here, little free time available, plenty of models waiting to be finished and my shop is looking really messy.....

Gonzalo38, since it's summer in Chile, do you still call it the month of January? Seems strange to me to have the summer and call the months December, January and February. I'm sure it seems strange to you to have summer in June, July and August. Regardless of what you call it, winter is for building and summer for flying. I hope you have a great flying season. I can hardly wait for ours to return. In the mean time I have a Reaction 54 wing to paint, a Reaction X to paint, an F4D that will be on a container ship from China in late January and a 1/4 scale Cub on amphibious floats on my work bench. No clean shop for me either.

They are 2 x 40' containers that were cut and welded together. It usually looks very clean but I just received a bunch of planes and I was in the process of unpacking. I think I will build a second shelf in order to leave the new planes assembled and ready to fly whenever you want.
