I’m not going out of my way to get them, just incidental to my adventures.
I dont want them either but I'm not going to let it stop me from going where I wanna go. I'm sure you feel the same.

Better angles on them. I built the biplane about 30 years ago. It has the wings and fuselages for a pair of rubber powered models sitting on it.

the blue and yellow plane is even older, built by my father in law. He passed unfortunately before I met my wife. That’s a 1/12 scale Messerschmitt sitting on it. E0E6BC10-C76A-49D2-B329-83098A1AC9E0.jpeg84BEF771-E8DF-4C6F-BB1C-ACF84548C2B9.jpeg2F3422AF-D438-478E-8330-2F643F3DEFB0.jpeg

It's a Great Planes Sportster Bipe 40, with a Super Tiger 45 ABC. They quit producing them a couple of years after I built it. Ten years later I showed a picture of something to a friend, the bipe was visible. Her hubby asked is that a... Yes it is. Do you still have the plans? Yes I did. I made a copy and sent them over. A year later, the gent had a fine example built from scratch.

Today was time for new front hubs. Start to finish in 2 hours for both, including putting tools away.

it goes quicker with experience. I had to do the same thing on theothertwin a few months ago.

My grandfather soloed in a Curtis-Jenny when Oakland airport was a dirt strip. I fly Boeing 777-300’s around the globe. Personally though, I like American muscle cars and overlanding trucks!

Been doing stuff to thecopcar for weeks. None of it involving a rooftop tent or skottle so no pics to upset the post police.

Did a platform to capture some storage volume. Overland Hound seal of approval. I’m not sure how I’ll finish it yet, carpet or paint.

Prepping for a longer trip this summer with a few layover days off grid. So, a new 100 watt panel. My teardrop already had a charge controller, so I bought a second one for thecopcar. Connections were configured to allow the panel to go to either one. Now where to store the panel, especially if I’m out without the teardrop. So a trapeze was born to use some empty volume.
