    I'm a bit behind on turning files on the computer into a build video, but here's about two steps back:



    I've actually achieved all the tubing bent, cut, and coped for one side and about half the gussets in (for that one side).

    She's looking more and more like an aircraft!

    Compressing hours of tedious work into five minutes makes it look easy!

    Yesterday I was "snake bit" while working on the aircraft. Nothing seemed to want to cooperate with me, including my drill's chuck finally giving up the ghost and refusing to hold onto bits worth a darn.

    After a few hours of not much real work getting done, I figured the best thing to do was to stop playing with snakes and packed it in.

    Here's a video from a few weekends ago where work actually got done, including a bit on "welding' the fuselage:





    Oh, and after getting home I wasn't very pleased, saying bad things about the 30+ year old drill. My wife looks at me oddly and says "Well, we may have to give you your father's day gift early." She bought me a new drill and was keeping it secret.

    Yep. Sometimes it's just better to stop when you are snake bit.

    BTW you're quite inspirational in that you had a crash and decided to build a new plane. Some people would have just given up.

    *blush*

    I take my inspiration from Bleroit, who never saw a plane he couldn't crash.
