The rule at my house when I was building was that my wife's car had to be in the garage every night!

Whenever I see a picture of a -10 with its wing spar/mounting outside of the fuselage I am so envious!

I have a similar rule but is temperature dependent. If the overnight low is below 45 F, then her car must be able to park back into the garage. ... basically all winter.

[ed. Hi Steve! You're close. Just need to host it online...not your local hard drive. Take a look at http://www.vansairforce.net/articles...ums/images.htm for some options. I use SmugMug.com, FWIW. v/r,dr]

Thumbs up

There are some points in the build process when various assemblies start to look like an actual airplane. This is one

Cabin top trimmed to fit after lots of cutting and sanding - ready for attaching holes to be drilled.

Often times, a guest at our house that sees the garage door open asks if I am building a canoe?
