Default -It happened on a crisp Fall day at a N.W. sign shop...

Yes! I'm stoked!

I found a place that has the 4mm stuff in 3 x 6 ft sheets. PERFECT for the "spa3dt".

So, I tell the guy at the sign shop what I'm buying the coroplast for...

The dude looks at me and I can see it in his eyes:

"This is why I'm in business for myself? All the small business loans. In hock
up the wazzoo. working 16 hours a day. Struggling in my little strip mall sign shop.
And this brain surgeon comes in all excited about turning my raw material into what?

A toy airplane?"

-Undaunted, I march out, throw the 3 sheets into the suv I borrowed from my friend and
head straight to Lowes for the aluminum square stock and hardware with a gleam in my eye,
daydreaming about torque rolls, harriers, flat spins...
