Where Are We Today
Here we are, the Middle of October and our last week at the Ridge for this year. Patsy from “patsyischillin” has kept you all update with our daily adventure of life and the fall colours that we are experiencing this year. All but a few last-minute items have been put away for the winter before our departure this coming weekend.
My working schedule has come to an end with many reno’s for happy customers completed.
This has been a great summer hobby related, with many weekends out at my local flying field, The Saugeen Radio Control Flyers, and starting a new building project. In an earlier post I had mentioned, the building of a Corsair, sorry to say that I lost interest in that project and have passed it on to someone else.
My new project is a Aeronca Sedan, which will be finished as a stand off scale model of “The City of Yuma” an Aeronca Sedan that did a 47 day nonstop endurance flight back in 1949. You can Google it. The aircraft sits high on a pedestal in the city hall of Yuma Arizona.
|Built this box to house the fuel tank and make the front end stronger for mounting the engine, not sure if I am liking this, may make changes.|

Scratch building is the way I’m building this model, no instructions. I have never scratch built a model before so I will admit that I will be stumbling through some of the build. Having built several kit models before will definitely help me work through the process. Over the summer, I have made considerable progress on the fuselage, as shown in these pictures. Now that we will be heading to Arizona in a week, the building will have to wait until next spring.
Thanks for stopping by, until the next time, take care. Comments are always welcome.
