Yeah, that's them. With the balsa cones. I better load up a fresh #11 in case the laser-cut fins don't just fall out. You know, I'm automatically attracted to Bill Simon designs. I just start modeling them. It's like a magnet. Just model. I don't even wait. And when you're a YORF Member, they let you do it. You can clone anything.

Hear! Hear! That’s more ‘skeeters than the U.P. In August! (Eh!)

They have Mosquitos the size of small birds in the U.P.

...and they’re twice as voracious!

A veritable swarm!

I guess I have to be the one to ask: why so many?

Overeasy123 01-06-2018 11:09 PM

Why so many, Neil? You think it's equal parts Masochism (that's a lot of fillets) and an Ideological Failing with Hillbilly Underpinnings (I can't swing a Corvette, but I can collect a half-dozen cracked-block Chevettes, in my front yard!)?

Mostly a case of the parts having been so cheap from NC Semroc, I bet. And, they are adorable. I'm curious to see what a swarm of 'em look like in the classic design with varying colors. Although not the most visible colors, I want a couple in white with the single fin in metallic aluminum.

As I'm getting a break in the gelid weather this week, I'll get the cones doped and fill spirals with primer.

I had to look up the word “gelid”. I learned a new word today!

I'd refrain from flying the white/silver ones if you hope to keep them.
