Keep' em coming!

My "other half" is complaining about wear n tear and debris (grass, dirt) inside our '09 Escape. It holds a 29% Pilot S'bach, a 25% Byron Cap and all the necessary gear for the day. I would rather place a "box" in my shed rather than pay for trailer storage and the extra insurance for it or another truck. Some day those will be, but for the foreseeable future, it'll be the roof, lol.

Done.

It aint pretty, and it aint the best but it satisfies all my requirements and works perfectly including storage.

Nice work! Looks like your garage has room for a few more of those containers.

Ha! I like the way you think...

However bigger birds ie: for the next couple of years will need another solution... may have to cave in to buying a trailer but dont expect to do that for a year or two.

Cheers!

I dunno goose, you said you weren't a fabricator, welder, carpenter but that looks pretty darn nice to me!!!!! I personally bought an old tent trailer for a case of beer and gutted it out. I could put my 100CC Cap 580, 50CC Extra 330, and 6 other smaller planes in it as well. I removed the propane tank mount on the front and attached a box for my flight box and fuel to sit in as well as a battery for charging things at the field. Plus it works awesome for a workbench at the field once the roof is down. I did sell it when i sold my 2 big planes, and am now going to build a box that fits in the back of my 1/2 ton truck as i'm scaling down to 30CC and smaller glow planes. Then the box can be pulled out and put in the roof of the garage for storing the planes during the winter and it'll keep them from getting covered in saw dust all the time ( the wife and i do a lot of woodworking)

great job on the box goose!!

Thanks Geoff...

Sounds like you have your transportation issues sorted out too, good work.

I particularly like the part about "...the wife and i..."

Cheers
