More coming down now and another 4-8 inches on Saturday. Sigh.

I guess you're vindicated. The need to restack snow sometimes slows down building here too.

and finally; Started on a 34 inch WS BALSA P-47 yesterday.

When the ice goes away, I can fly this one off the pond.

and: Another 42 inch foamie on skis. We've got lots of snow but below Zero temps so I haven't flown this one yet.

Just so that y'all don't think that I have been slacking this winter: Foamie DHC-2 Beaver @ 42 in WS.

DD: Although this is B&W, you can see how scruffy the O.D. got with a little exposure.

Thanks for this post. It tells me all I need to know about OD:-)
Don C, Comment for image # 3990013 Feb 18 10:35
Thanks, Ray. And I noticed the Mitchell in the background had a third.

DD and all: Thes are photos taken, leterally seconds apart, (by me) at a local airshow. I used to drag them out at Plastic Model contests to illustrate the fact the Olive Drab can be a chameleon depending on your vantage point. That said, I wouldn't stress to much about the "perfect" O.D. paint job.

Hi Ray - so ends the mystery - that IS pretty mangled! I am glad your electronics still work - the Phoenix SHALL rise !
rayl, Image # 3965005 Dec 17 09:36

This what is left of the Cub after the combine ran over it. Amazingly, the electronics still work, so will have to built another small foamie to fit them in. Phoenix shall raise. BTW; We had our first mini-blizzard last night do building season is approching.

....miss him too!
Don C, Comment for image # 3808808 Mar 17 21:36
Wow! You certainly are on a roll. Weather must be nasty in Iowa. I've been wondering about DD too.
rayl, Image # 3808808 Mar 17 15:14

Painted with DD's favorite acrylic paints. Speaking of David: Where the heck Ya been???

I'm beginning to like thse foamie thingys. One week ago it was a pile of Dollar Tree Foam board. Wanted to give it a fligh today, but we have 30-50 MPH gusts here. Wanted to do floats but didn't have enough music wire for all the struts.
