Hi Bucky,

Someone sent me the attached pictures taken in California last October at the
team selection finals. I've just finished making two more of these folders
with geared engines. I'm going to Lost Hills next month to trim them out. I
look forward to a couple weeks of warm weather. Man it is cold. Good indoor
building weather. Hope you had a grand holiday season.

Bucky's Ramblings #3






Hi Guys,
Just a few more things to do and the Rambler will be ready for the flying season.
It was tooooo cold and windy outside to take photos.
Bucky
PS Tom Ryan gave me a gift of checkerboard tissue; so I used some on the Rambler.
NOTE: Do not use a brush to apply dope. It tends to smear the checkers Use a spray guy.










Model Airplanes and Visibility


Personally, I'm partial to fluorescent orange and white (with a little strategically placed Skyshine/Skysheen). And, I've had no trouble with Serengeti sunglasses.

Others will object.
