Ho hum? If you were down with the sinus infection I've got, you'd be delighted to be able to work on the wing. I have done nothing at all for 3 days. Have only been on the computer for very short periods. Is the Jester photogenic yet? Seems like you should consider taking a break from the wing and working on the tail feathers or fuselage for a while. May help it seem like your cranking right along. Back to the recliner and my blanket. Later.

Oh but this good weather is calling one to fly! It's tough to work on an airplane inside when the weather is so fine. The wing sheeting is coming, more work to do. I hope you feel better, Jim.

The center sheeting is almost done. Rib cap strips on the bottom then on to the outer panels. Now I know why guys do ARF's![br][br]

If you want to see the photos in their proper orientation, just tap on them once and they should re - orient themselves. I don't know why they did that.

Wow. You have talent to post upside down and sideways. How did you discover that they'd reorient if you tapped on them once?

I think because they were taken by this IPad, they were oriented to fit the screen. They get much bigger when you tap on them.

You did not really mean it about knowing why guys go the ARF route did you Pilatus?

Sticking balsa pieces together is a Zen thing. A good escape, stimulated by the smell of balsa dust, glue, and whatever memories you have of this activity when you were just a young pup.
