Yea was feeling real bad for a while. feel much better now as it clears up.

Yep, Emile and I plan to be at Dalton. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

I am so anxious to retire as this job is sucking the fun out of the hobby for me. I fight to stay in it and Emile kicks me in the butt when I get down
If it wasn't for the encouragement and support I get from Emile, you, Ed, Barry, Donnie and a few others I would have quit already which sux because I really love this hobby.
Like I have always said, the people are what really make this hobby!

sweet, thanks brother!!

I will get those doors cut open this weekend and try to finish the rivets.
Then I should only need to add a couple of required scale details and then it's time to think about priming and painting

I think I see a light at the other end of the tunnel... let's just hope it's not a train LOL

well, the bronchitis is clearing up and although I'm still not 100% I tried to get some work done on the MC 407.

I cut the pilot doors glass to fit the large observation windows. It looks like I cut them a little to big but I'm stuck with it now.
I also started the rivets on the port side. I figure another week or two and this fuse will be done and ready for paint.

Alright im finally past the major hump, i have paint on my 407 and the cockpit is almost done just waiting for bezels to go around the mfd's screens and thats it. Add the glass plus the new version 2.0 bubbles windows and im left with painting the tail blades and the leading of the main blades and finding a pilot to put in it. Hell i even got playboy and penthouse magazine for the pilot.

Well ill tell u that head was a big waste of money i would never recommend that head to nobody unless they want something that will fly itself apart and destroy ur heli. So save ur money! I would tell u if ur looking for a head the TF pre phazed head is the way to go. Fly so smooth u dont need a FBL but it makes it fly like its on rails.

Well first wad the phazing 45*degree pitch arms,two of them cracked after the first spool up. Second i had several screws in the head, blade grips and swash plate break so now those broken screws need to be drilled and tapped again and all the soft bolts and screws replaced with better harden one. And third the swash plate separated twice on me! The mani bearing in the swash kept falling down from the swash base frame. I drilled it and added 3 set screws to keep the swash plate from separating but still did. I wish i never wasted my money on that head.
