I am trying the multiple approach to see how it goes. I find that I lose
interest in a particular project for a while so I think it will be helpful
to have another going. In R/C there seems to ALWAYS be some repair work to
be done (especially if you land as well as I do at times)! This gets
squeezed in as necessary so there is something to fly.

Projects....hmmm. I guess I will "spill the beans as well'.

1/6 Dr1 - Flair kit
1/6 SE5a - Flair kit
1/6 N17 - Flair kit (nearly ready to paint)
1/6 EIII (sorta) - Flair kit
1/4 Pietenpol Air Camper - scratch (RCM plans)
1/6 D-VII - Scratch (Gordon Whitehead plans)
1/6 D-VIII - Scratch (Henry Haffke/RCM plans. Needs some serious bashing)
1/6 Curtis Robin - Scratch (my own plans/design)

Well this list ought to keep me busy into the next century. Add to that the
CSM SPAD XIII kit I am hoping Santa is bring (hint hint big guy if you are
