Default The trials of building a Long

Well, after much negotiation I managed to wrangle a nice space to build my plane in. It is well lit, heated, insulated has the National Guard watching over it, and has an air compressor the size of a small passenger car. Plus I cant beat the cost.

So, now all I have to do is move my foam and fibreglass from Murfreesboro to its new home at Smyrna.... build a table and then get to glassing.

Oh, and I installed the webcam tonight... I'll get it put on my webpage tommorow.

Congratulations Nathan,
that's indeed a huge working space.
I'm still bogged down with work, but when ready I'll set up a webcam too.

Dear Nathan,
Are you in the row of privately owned hangers with Steve Wright and his EAA chapter members?

Chrissi...

No, I'm actually right behind them in an old WWII hangar. I can walk out front and look into their hangar across a parking lot. I've seen them out there a few days, however I've yet to get the nerve to walk over and say hi.

Waiter... believe me, you are on the list of people that I have to visit. Your plane is fast becoming what I want mine to be.... except for Blue Mountain instead of Dynon. and a rotary instead of a certified.

Very Interesting! I looked at these photos yesterday, and they appeared OK. (I was on my computer at work, don't tell the boss )

I just looked at them from my house, and they are very dark, even the thumbs. I'll check again when I go back to work.

I use the same browser (Avant) and Operating system (WinXP) at work and home? I don't have an explaination for this

I wondered who those crazy fools were hanging out the car window! . I'm glad to hear RR was a success, Hopefully, I'll be able to get there next year!

The photos definitely look brighter here at work. ALSO, I notice the Avatars are also brighter, i.e there is detail in JonC that I couldn't see at home, i.e. instrument panel, facial features.

The monitor here is a Viewsonic LCD, but all the other settings are the same???????

I can't explain it???
