It has taken him six years part-time...

But The Son is now on the home stretch,  er,  literally, stretching the 'skin' on the plane.

Built from scratch, even the ribs inside the plane itself.  Needless to say I am impressed.

When he first bought the engine he bolted it to a porch railing and started it up to make sure it worked correctly.   We thought the porch would end up in Kansas with some striped stockinged legs sticking out from underneath it...

 Somehow I just really wish he would hurry up so I can see it with the decal design . It is really neat.

Need I mention he continues to put me to shame regarding my lighthouse, though a big Thank You to Warren Zoell (http://thegreatcanadianmodelbuilderswebpage.blogspot.com/) for the assist in fixing the short I had in the wiring!



  1. That is a great hobby!. After a lifestyle change I could no longer afford to fly real planes. My wife got me a kit and I enjoyed years of RC flying, mostly off the lake we lived on. Wish him luck, real airplanes are easier to fly!

  2. It takes a lot of self discipline to start and finish a project like this! Good job and good luck!

  3. Wow, I am really impressed! What a cool hobby. I hope you will show us what it looks like when it's in the air! :-)

  4. It would have never occur to me to get an rc airplane kit...but my husband and sons would LOVE this. Good luck with the finished product!

  5. Wow, that is impressive. I enjoy seeing someone who puts so much time into a craft.

  6. Looking Good!! Make sure you balance it after you put the wings on. (ballast in the tail section.)

  7. Your post are really wonderful. I known many impress information catch from here! I have like this site.
