    Does it ever bother your conscience that you are passing off a "BRAND NEW" plane as a "REPAIRED" plane? HMMMM????? :laughing:

    Seriously Earle, that ole' girl looks as good as new. Hard to imagine she was almost "firewood" (sacrifice to the plane gods). Can't wait to hear how she re-maidens. Good luck....

    Hahaha. ....! I am so soooo glad i didn't sacrifice the old girl. I remember when we were moving thinking I should just get rid of all these parts :eek:.

    Weather here should be up in the 50s toward the end of the week, she might see some sky time :fist_pump:

    Sa-weetness!!!! I remember back when you moved. You had a heap on your plate didn't you?! Common sense...(and the "I'm a hangin' on to everything" sickness") paid off for you. On the flip side of that coin, take a look at my plane room. You'll soon realize, "I just gotta git rid of some of this stuff.......someday"! Lol. She is a beauty Earle. Good job.

    My pilot is ready to go and out for vengeance!!!! If figured I'd stay with a bird scheme as my other plane is a Raven, flown by a damned old pirate :pirate:.
    This bird is angry and out for blood......he's been shot down once, but the next kill is his . Weapons and NoS is armed and ready!!! :devil-dance:

    Love the bullet holes that looks cool. So is it ready to fly now the big moment. I will some times procrastinate for quite some and look at it for a while before I fly the plane.
