Yesterday I glued small strips of basswood to each of the two wing fins and also the tail fin. I also built the 24 mm motor mount, using BT50 tubing and home made centering rings of 3/32" aircraft plywood. Today I test fitted these parts and now everything fits as it should. I am awaiting a PNC 80 nose cone and a shock cord assembly that I ordered from a guy on Ebay and will continue this build when they arrive.

This morning I also pulled sand stickers and mowed the lawn. As it was cool and cloudy most of today, I fired up the John Deere 950 this afternoon and finished demolishing the barn/outbuilding which was destroyed by last December's ice storm. Now I'm cooking salmon for me and my lovely bride.

So much for my day of rest.
