Congratulations on the move Rob - the plane is looking great!

Did you change to the Raven inverted tank? Kinda looks like it.

Yep I caved to peer pressure after reading your inverted oil post. It doesnt quite fit under the upper cowl yet, but it should after I replace the existing reducer bushing/elbow fitting on the vent gas line with a 3/4" npt to 5/8" hose fitting.

The minimum number of planes one should own is one. The correct number is n+1, where n is the number of planes currently owned. This equation may also be re-written as s-1, where s is the number of planes owned that would result in separation from your partner.

Default You're making me nostalgic!

I'm already missing the days of building.

Congratulations! I promise, it's worth it. But the -8 will never seem the same once you fly the -3.

Folks,
If you haven't taken a look recently at Katie B's project of resurrecting Tony Boy II to flying status, take a look...she's making good progress.

Giving you a big thumbs up, Katie. You deserve it!

Thanks Moose!! Plugging away at the new tail. Finally time to start on the rudder & elevators! If all goes as planned, the metal work will be done just as Spring arrives to warm up the garage for canopy & glasswork.

Hope it all goes as planned, Katie. As a late friend of mine always used to say: "It's important to have a plan...it gives you something to deviate from!"
