    I recently rebuilt a Jo-Han 62 Dart kit from the 1908's, and it had the wrong dash in it, too.

    Congrats, Mike! I was married 25 years, and the wife walked out. Then I married a very nice lady six years later. It's been good! Best of luck to you and your fiancée and kids!

    Here's a thread about those go karts. The engines look like West Bend 2-strokers. I think I have one of those engines and sprockets somewhere.

    Yes, Sean, I've seen planes made from coroplast posters. That's another good way to make cheap, simple planes to just have fun with, and not worry about ruining a high investment plane!

    Nice bike! The leather work on the seat is great, as are the taped exhaust pipes. Super job on this!

    Cheap foamboard RC delta
    I just built this little RC delta from two sheets of 3/16" thick foamboard from Dollar Tree ($1.00 per 20"x30" sheet) held together with hot glue. I patterned it after one I saw on flitetest.com. It has double thickness on the front 40% of the wing, forming a Kline-Fogelman stepped airfoil of sorts. It uses a motor, speed control, radio, and other stuff I had laying around. It weighs about 10 ounces, and spans 28". It uses elevon control, where the control surfaces on the trailing edge of the wing can move in opposite directions for ailerons, or together for elevators. It should be fast and fun, and my investment was all of $2.00!

    That is the best build of that kit I've ever seen, Tulio! GREAT work! The finish is perfect. I like your philosophy of details. At some point it becomes too much work to be fun.
