    Navy, that's a link to your gmail account, not to the attachment. I'd really like to read the article, but I don't find a magazine "The Flying Machine" via Google.

    A new airplane ? Called Thomas Morris ? Heck, I will look forward to seeing photos of that too please. What colour did you select for the truck, looks cool but I would imagine it will look even better in the sun.

    Never took the time to see the spelling, just started cutting wood and wire, waiting for the rad for the Se5.

    That's a nice rich red color. Is that the final color choice?

    That's close very close. lots has happened since I stopped posting due to lack of time and computer access. Se5 aircraft is done and gone I'm retired from plane building. tried to upload a video of it running but couldn't get it done. Perhaps another day.

    Ok This is the Se5 start up for the first time after hours of synchronizing the twin mags, they trail one behind the other a bit don't remember the the degrees, coupled together to the engine with coupling disc like devices loaded with springs to keep them all in place . Yes that's my thumb in the video I had to hold on to my hat and camera as the dust/dirt was flying around, even at idle you've got to lean into the wind to walk up to the cockpit. The plane is gone to its owner in Va. I retired from building aircraft but still go see whats happening at the shop once in while, maybe I'll get some pic's of the Tommy and post them. No that's not a rubber prop bending HA HA

    The math behind the magic bending prop would make an interesting lecture.
