Yes, it was fun but now back to work in a far away land. I wonder if the airlines would let me bring my building board?

Don't you drive to Boulder? Or is the board too big to fit in your powered skateboard of a Nissan?

Not today. This is a land that shakes and bakes! Guess where in the world is Tow Dog?[br][br]

Affirm, it's at KSFO. Lot's of heavy metal around this place! Nice little tug pulling that 747-400! Oh look, it's a little Gulfstream G-650, right next to it.

You going to run up to Cajon Pass to see if the PSS folks are flying this weekend? From all the magazine coverage they seem to have some really nice scale slope planes. Crunchy ones too. I'm so sorry you will be so warm there in Palm Springs. Too bad.

Yeah, it's supposed to be 85 degrees. Pretty warm for the winter.

Well, back in the building game, again! Here is the latest development in the never ending saga of the Mountain Models Jester. The right wing panel is drying as we speak. Soon, the left wing panel will start.[br][br]

Thanks , Jim. It is a nice, Laser cut kit and the parts fit together, quite nicely. I think I'll add some swept wing tip extensions to try to increase the aspect ratio and try to lower the wing loading, somewhat.

Thanks John. It should be quite strong. It's built like a sport .40 size powered airplane wing. Fully sheeted and cap stripped.
