More Scale stuff and update

Well there hasn't been a lot of Cherokee related happenings in my life lately.  We've been slowly working on finishing up the garage.  I still need to get about 3/4 of the insulation in the ceiling and some in the walls.  Big thing remaining is to get a propane tank set up and hooked up to the heater.  We are hoping to get 53T moved over anyway this week though and start to get to work.  It's starting to warm up and going to be in the 60's and 70's later this week.

More updates from the 1/3 scale Cherokee guys.  First up is Creeve's (Charlie) from  His bird is covered and he's working on trim work.  Turns out he is modelling Gary Flandro's full size Cherokee which is the bird that was for sale on Craigslist.  8722E if I remember right.  It will have the full dress indian chief nose art and also a baby albatross style paint job on the rudder.

Here is a picture of the rudder on Gary's full size Cherokee.  Looks cool!  I can't wait to get more pictures from Gary. He reports that he has gotten the wings recovered and is working on painting everything.

Nigel has also been hard at work on his 1/3 model.  He's modelling the New Zealand Cherokee.  Looking good!
