Default Road trips: 2024

January 1, 'Freeze Fly' at one of my local clubs.
DANG; another year 'gone by'. The older I get the more 'exponential' the time elapses!
No snow but cold at around freezing.
If it's not 70 degrees, or more, I don't fly but I'll 'watch'!
I remember in the CORP, many moons ago, it was in the 30's and we were all 'bundled up'
except for one dude, he was in shorts and a T-shirt; growing up in Alaska it was 'Spring' to him!



There were a lot of pilots attending; Well, most of us watched as the 'tough ones' flew in the 2 contests: gas and electric.

















































Train of life:

HAPPY NEW YEAR:

F4U Corsair by Hanger 9.
New purchase from a local RC plane friend.

Used my Toyota Corolla instead of my truck and trailer.
JUST got everything into the vehicle.



Glad the back seats 'fold down'.









Into the shop.



Got a spare DA-50 for it.



Functioning canopy.



Full cockpit detail.



Nice scale tail wheel doors with a scale amount of wheel showing.



Functioning main gear doors. Electric gear.
Bomb drop racks.





Functioning 'nav' lights.





2 cowls and bombs.

GCRCC static show held every April to show what members built over the winter.

Dayton show (CONT).
My booty:

A CY 95" F4U corsair.



Darrell's wheels.



Parts. 2 cowls.
The previous owner did a nice job of detailing the wings.



Needed some glow fuel for the Zirolit F4U that I acquired at an estate sale that has a Seito 90 radial.
Must be a good 20 years since I've needed 'glow fuel'!



A brand new small air brush 'paint booth' that I can use when I want to paint some of my railroad engines without having to go to my detached shop where it's too cold in the winter and I'm too 'cheap' to heat it in the winter!
Can't beat 50 bucks!



Detached shop.
I'm accumulating too much stuff!
