Default A box of wood

I walked into the house the other day with a new kit under my arm. The better half looked at me and asked, "Not another airplane?" I said, "No, it just a box of wood." As she turned to walk away she replied, "Well as long as it's not another airplane."

LOL, I'll try that one..

When I lived in Perth my flying buddy and I were buying new planes regularly. We stored the planes at each others house..

When the wife said "not another plane" I could honestly reply "No its Jason's plane, I am minding it as he doesn't want his wife to know"

He did the same.. worked for years.

I suppose it was a Bud Nosen "kit."
The only "kits" closer to a box of
wood were the Comet printed wood
ones.

Actually it was just a box of wood. That turned into 2 super Kaos's and one ugly stik. She says that I have too many airplanes. But, I've never heard of anyone having too many airplanes.

It's just an engine mount.

Another "Box of Wood" arrived this morning. I spent the day at the field and when I got home a box was sitting in my favorite chair. The better half heard me pull into the driveway and was waiting for me. "You got a delivery today!" she said. I quickly replied," oh yeah, the box of wood I ordered." Well, she stood right there until I opened the box. And sure enough, it was a "Box of wood". But it was the wood I needed to complete the Vertigo II that I am working on in the shop. I ordered this wood from http://www.balsawoodinc.com/

They have the best wood and I only ordered it Monday night. I asked for some sheet balsa to skin a foam core and it had to wrap around the leading edge.

Check out their prices and you'll be ordering from them too.

But anyway, when she saw that is was only wood planks, She left me alone so I could caress and fondle the beautiful wood.
