    I fly at the Stoney Creek club, but I may do the jet test flight at Burlington.

    I was just wondering if it was you that I met at Burlington 2 seasons ago when I maidened my GS HK Spitfire. Youd remember it cause it has the electric start.

    That's a cool plane!
    Not me. You probably met Don flying scale heli at Burlington. Sorry, his last name eludes me at the moment. He is the king of scale helicopters.

    Still filling and sanding. A lot fewer spots to fill now so I'm thinking about how to jig up the parting board.

    Hi:

    You've put a lot of work into this and it really shows. I look forward to seeing it up close and personal very soon.

    Thanks Don. Pictures actually look a lot better than real life. I still have a small scale version of the surface of the moon! Pretty soon I'm going to give up and say it is good enough for a test bed.

    Re: The birth of Solstice (build thread)

    It's been a few days and I am learning a lot of what not to do.
    Even though the pictures don't look much different, the bottom has first coat of paint and the top is ready for paint. There will be a delay as I let it all cure before setting up the parting board.

    Making some progress on the fin / rudder. Still very rough but pics show how rudder will split for brakes.

    There's where rudder servos will live. Linkages will be internal.
