High school classmate and myself built U-Control model airplanes.
He quit building and flying models when he got a job at the local
airport (grass strip) after school doing odd jobs.
He would tell me about the inspection process of the various planes.
Turned the money he earned into flying time.
Still remember he told me it was $16/hr for dual and $8/hr for solo.
Soloed on his 16th birthday.
Went on to spend several years in the airforce and then a career as a
pilot for American.
Saw him at a class reunion after he retired and he told me he never
liked "flying by wire", much preferred the old way.
It don't take long to separate the wheat
from the chafe in these messages.
It's amazing how much info is
floating around this news group,if you just pay
Why don't you take all those hoarded up messages
and write up a "finishing F.A.Q." ?
Pat, don't wait for the retention of the servers to get you. You can
easily search this group by subject through Google groups.
There is some pretty extensive writing from members on from this group
on application, repair, refinishing and anything else you can think of
with finishing. The retained archives here are a virtual set of
encyclopedias of practical information.
I do most of my spraying with WB lacquer.
When I spray solvent lacquer, I either spray it in the booth at a pal's
bicycle frame building shop, spray it outside, or spray in a barn with
no furnace or lights and the turbine outside. In the barn, I use fans
to force air into the barn and out the back. The fans move only fresh air.
I have sprayed smaller items in my basement shop, with the furnace and
auto-start electrics turned off.
> Any advice on what I should/should not worry about?
I'm not going to tell you not to worry.
