    Default COVID Projects

    Here is my Folk Art project I just completed, it represents part of the upper wing from a WW1 German Fighter. It is wood ribbed, covered in canvas and then painted.
    I am now making a shelf with a wood frame and rapped in aluminum to represent the leading edge of an aircraft wing. It is riveted and about 9 inches deep and 4 feet long. Thanks, KC

    Nice KAHNZILLA. Thatís cool.

    I started a thread on another forum with this same exact title.

    I built a rack for the stack of water skis I had just lying in the garage. Refinished a Teak table. Rebuilt an a few RC cars that had been sitting on the shelf for a good 10yrs.

    pretty cool! Not that things here are that slow but I have taken more down time. Started this earlier this year and kicked it in high gear when the lockdown happened. I've never done this before and it is kind of fun...keeps you honest. the music just covers all the cussing

    Jim,

    Wow,

    Now I will have to watch vid 4 & 5.

    What a hobby, therapeutic for sure.

    Watching your sanding in fast mode, your better than a power sander :-)

    Interesting to watch your patience trying to fill that stubborn gap on the wing/fuselage joint.

    Your Mr. Mello.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I laugh every time I speed up the video when I'm sanding. I swear the plastic in this kit is made from granite. I'm glad you like it! Video 4 will be up Wednesday night, pesky work is getting in the way. Fun project, especially since Ohio is in the rainy season.

    Just looking back at this and some other threads during the ShutDown of 2020 and it makes me so grateful that we can have this place!

    From time to time, we have had a lot more active members, LOTS of memories but it always feels like home when I open a thread here!

    Thanks!

    Jim, having this site has awarded we with the most diverse group of friends that anyone could ask for, it has afforded me many opportunities to photograph amazing airplanes meet equally amazing people!
