The Falco construction started 18 months ago. The tail, ailerons
and flaps are finished. The spar is in the jig and construction
has started. I used the construction manual to cut out the center
board and wing templates with no problems but standing them up
vertical and hanging plumb bobs was a pain in the ass.
After discussing this with about 20 of my friends at the local
coffee shop, two of them showed up to help. Eight hours later
with water levels and six plumb bobs hanging in place, I have
a level wing spar to work with.
I have a qreat desire to fly this airplane which keeps me working
hard toward the finish.
The news letters are helpful and interesting. I find myself
going through them often looking at construction pictures other
builders have sent in. I visit the website every week. It is a
great help, too.
I am sending pictures of Jane and me, and a few pictures of
construction. Looking forward to meeting you all.
Thanks for your time and help. It's a great comfort knowing
you are there.
