A 'few' (one side of show center) of the planes at the flyin!



Other side of show center.



Peter Goldsmith (Mr. top gun for this year) was at the flyin. A very nice person. I was the 'fly on the wall' while he was talking to Evo about building/competing for 'top gun'.



No ARF here, all built of wood. Around a 10' WS.



Getting ready for Dawn Patrol for noon show.

Great Pics Sam! Fondy was fantastic! A sorely needed break from the Texas heat. Was nice to fly with you again.

Thanks, Lee.
I'll be there.
========

Needed that!
Spent the bulk of the day cleaning and organizing the shop.
On my hands and knees vacuuming the floor with the shop vac.

Planes in the hanger:
Ziroli 92" P-47. Needs stars-n-stripes but has 4 flights.
TF ARF P-47.


This area was a real mess. All the airplane 'stuff' has been moved into the house's spare bedroom, alias hobby shop supplies.


Rack for airplanes.
Top front: 1/3 scale Nieuport 28.
Top back: Ziroli F9F.
Middle front: one Phoenix 95" spit with fuse destroyed.
Middle back: one new/in the box Phoenix 95" spit: spring project.
Floor front: Ziroli F4U in the bones: probably next summer.
Floor back: Blown up 110" P-47: sold.



Ziroli SBD whose motor won't run and after, only, 10 years of running, probably 100 flights a year!



Trailer stocking:
Top front: TF arf F4U.
Top back: shrunk down Ziroli F6F to TF size.
Bottom back: Ziroli F6F.



Spare bedroom:
Ziroli P-51 in the bones. Been building this for about 10 years (I'm a radial engine guy!)


Ziroli C-45 twin beachcraft full kit with gear/scale wheels, FG/plastic parts and engines.
Had one of these but sold it as it was 20 years old and figure that would motivate me to build a new one. Always enjoyed flying her but shrinking down the fleet so will, probably, sell her.



BVM F-86 that I plan on selling.



Was wasting a lot of time finding screws scattered in all these pie pans.



Went to Harbor Freight and got some nice organizers and spent a few hours getting all the screws in 'their right place'.

Miles: 110.
Around a 700' runway plus grass.
A general flyin including all kinds of airplanes.

This is the first of 3 different flyins that I'm attending, this w/e. This one was Friday.

















High stakes gambling!
