Trip to Tom Boice Model Ranch

I had an unexpected trip today to Tom Boice's place for some pre-contest flying. Unfortunately, work precludes me from participating in the actual contest. We started off catching bass & crappie in his farm pond and then we feasted on what was, only yesterday, the neighbor's cow along with some wild asparagus picked today. Then, we ran my Brown, and did some flying when the wind subsided.

Bucky's Honker build part 2

The glue area for the original model seem to me a little on the weak side.

I added triangular strips on the inside rear of the fuselage for more
glueing area. Also triangular strips to support the rudder.

Don't send any more kits.
