Hi, I am on vacation in CA. but am still getting my Email. I have answered a few questions here and also have placed a step by step section for building your own web page. I will be back in the shop on Nov 1, 1998 and also will be adding NEW pictures to the Outrigger page and the Train page just as soon as I return home.

The latest project has been to show people how my webpage was built.

UPDATE Oct. 7, 1998

Questions I get asked...

"What do I do and why do I have so many hobbies?"

I injured my back 9 years ago and have had 3 operations and I am able to get around and do pretty much what I want I just have to watch what I do...how much I do... and how long I do it. So my back is in control. It does not take long to figure out that if my back is giving me trouble, It is because I have done to much. So with the back problem being what it is... I don't work. I have lots of free time and I use it when my back will allow it. When I can piddle in the shop I do. When I can fly I do. When it is raining I use my computer...well I think I use the computer when the rain, sun or moon are present here lately. So I think you get the idea.


Question

"What did it cost to have my web page done?"

My page was FREE and you can build one also. (you can get 11 meg of space FREE)

To learn how: Click HERE.


Question

"How often do I build something and would I do more projects like the "Miss Shirley Twin" and would I offer plans so someone could build the same project?

I will be happy to share any of my designs with anyone that ask. I am in the hobby for the Enjoyment not for money. I get paid everytime I see something I designed or built fly. The only payment I ask is that when someone completes one of my designs. I would like to have a picture if that is possible.

Check back on Dec. 10, 1998 for the next UPDATE!
