    I've fallen into the cycle trap.
    I got chips for the Pueblo salsa, but it ran out and there were chips left, so I got more salsa. Now the chips are gone and I still have salsa, so I'll need to get more chips.......

    It just dawned on me while reading this....
    So that's why hot dogs comes in packs of 10 but hot dog buns come in packs of 8.
    Brilliant marketing. But as a consumer I'm kinda ticked off.

    Getting back to the thread, try not to handle the metallic portion of the Alpha VI too much, it can wear off, especially the edges.
    Or better yet sell the unopened kit 20 years from now on eBay and send your kid to college.

    Yeah, my flyer (made two flights at NARAM-60, one before and one after, so far) is showing some wear from handling and landings.

    Sure...... Anybody want to give me even one semester's tuition for an unopened Alpha IV? It's 20 years old now.... :D

    I understand going with a non-black paint scheme on the Mean Machine, but am I the only one that misses that Mean Machine font logo decal? Even as a 13 year old, I loved that design. Still love it today.

    That's good looking work, Glen. Not for nothing, though, if you want to detail your build(s), I'd suggest starting your own build thread...

    Not a big deal here, since the original topic had run its course. But it would be easier for people to find your builds if they were there own threads, easier to search, easier to identify.
