Hi Tom, I have hauled that there salt to PennDOT before. Your welcomeSpeaking of warm, I watch this thread because it warms my heart. Houston is a lovely place. Now Pittsburgh, you'd think we'd be used to driving in snow... but every year it's the same mess, cars all over the place, etc. Every newscast with snow in the forecast, there's a bundled-up reporter in front of the road maintenance sheds assuring us that PennDOT will be out in force plowing and salting, letting us know the state of the salt supplies, etc. That's not news. News is when PennDOT says, "Aw, phooey, this isn't that bad - we're sitting this one out! Just be careful!"
No kidding. I'm one who doesn't give s$@% what people think or do. Someone always has an opinion and if you dont agree they get their panties in a wad.By the way, welcome to the forum!
Sorry it had to be this way, but there are a whole lot of people on here who's attitude seems to be "If you don't rocket the way I rocket, then you rocket wrong."
I think you just met several...
Hi Steve, just wanted you to know I will leave on Monday, going to OK. Be gone a bit. But I try to plan like this as your white is drying on the bird. I learned long ago, if touching it will leave a oil finger print, it is not ready to be masked off for another color. Will continue work on her when I get back. All that is really left to do is black paint and decals. I did not clear coat mine. The decals have held up fine and I have 16 flights on her. Do you want me to clear over the decals? I will also place the order for the chutes when I get back, holding off till I knew what size I need for the V 2. Got to order a 12' one for her. Stay warm, Dave.
Oh, sorry for leaving the wrong impression - the 1:100 Dragon ("4D") is not a flying model. And on top of that, you painted Steve's better than a factory paint job on a kit that went for $225!Hi Tom, thanks. I did not know the Dragon was a flying model. Love to see pics of her when she goes, Dave.
Love it except I'm sad they won't allow flights yet...Dave, that will happen. The club that I belong to is actually on NASA property. There are some NASA engineers in the club. Does not get any better then that. She will fly next to the real Saturn V on display there. Only one problem, they still will not allow flights because of the Covid - 19.
