Hey Tim... Did you repost my rudder picture or is the site messing up matching posts with pictures? Nice tail section by the way, great job!

Your words of encouragement mean a lot to us!

Take care and fly safely!

Hi Tim,

       Thank-you for the kind words re my friend's photography skills.  The scene is of the Clark Fork River's confluence with Lake Pend'Oreille on the Idaho/Montana border.  I like your rainbow shot off the right wing.

Hi Tim. I cut the Y off the top and added a short stub to take the grip. Any right seat passenger can take control & I will not be training so I like this setup better.   Cheers.

Thanks Tim,

A belated thankyou for your suggestions re the firewall nose wheel linkages – and photos. Looks like a nicely fitting option.

I am sorry to be slow in replying, had an unexpected problem with my mother-in-laws health just after I raised the question, she has since passed away – funeral and aftermath now all over, so only just putting my plane back on the “menu”!

I saw an interesting option the other day on a passing 601 – the builder used material cut from a fireman’s coat for the boots – so now to find a fireman who won’t miss a bit of coat!!

hey Tim, thanx for the comments on JOsh flying, I responded back on the photo. Beautiful pics on your site of the fall colors. If your ever in Tampa, call me and we can go check out the beaches.

Thanks for the kind words on my pictures.

It helps to have a good camera. A little cropping and straitening in Goggle Picasa helps too. Having dramatic, beautiful country to fly around is a plus as is a fun, sturdy airplane. And then there is no discounting the willingness (or foolhardiness) of the pilot to get up-close and personal with the subject matter, Terra Firma.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for viewing and commenting on my pictures.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DCM-FZ28 which is not made any more. The current replacement would be FZ-45 or FZ-100.

I'm still jealous.

4.3 hours this weekend? Consider me jealous. My flying time is a bit scarce for a few weeks while I help my oldest son do some renovations on a "new" old house. Look for us in the fall series of HGTV entitled "This Damned Old House".

The weather has been sorta tropical-wannabe for most of the week anyway. The temps are down a bit with highs around 90 rather than 95 - 97 as it had been. The humidity is back up so it's still pretty miserable after 9AM. At least we haven't had any serious storms to deal with so far this season.

Have fun.

"Is it sacrilegious to install a Van's part on a Zenith Aircraft?"

In a country that currently worships at the altar of diversity? Really? You might actually get a medal for such open-mindedness.

How have you been?

I hope it is not sacrilegious as I have some Van's stuff in a Zodiac. My map box, cool air ball valve vent and cabin light from the vans catalog site.

Most certainly not Tim, but I would bet my last dollar, that if the shoe were on the other foot, it most certainly would be. !
