It’s been a busy two weeks at work. I’ve barely had time to think much less do anything. But the garage has become my place of solace and peace. My son hasn’t helped every day but he needs a break some times. I don’t want to burn him out on this project. I want it to be as enjoyable as it is educational. But we have made some progress by just doing something small each day. Here is our progress so far.
It’s up on the wheels:
And we’ve begun installing the cockpit floor and rudders.
Angela stained the floorboard the color you see.
Scotty drilled the holes for the brake mount plates.
And he assembled the rudder pedals.
Next steps will be to install the rudder pedals and then brakes.
We’re making good progress and learning to understand eachother better. Have I always been the best teacher? No. Have I always been patient? Uh-uh. Am I always good at involving him in the project? Nope. But I am what God has given him, and he is what God has given me. And I think we will both be blessed because of God’s choices.

What is the tool Scotty is using in the last photo? Does Scotty enjoy flying?
That tool is a pneumatic rivet puller. Really saves the hands and arms with all the pulled rivets on the plane.
It’s coming along! it looks good.
Thanks! We are having a lot of fun building it too.
