The Vamp is looking better all the time, and keeps attracting more and more attention as she nears completion.

One has to admire the humour of this warning on the wing...#-o
Image

And then there is the puzzle of the signage " DTD 772 --> C " all over the aircraft. Anyone have any ideas on what this means... :?

ZU-EFC made an appearance...

Image

And here was a unique way to get the club together before the meeting...the fling a prop compo.. :lol:

There's the "flick-and-stare-the-prop-down" method.
Image

then "flick-duck-cover-the-box" method;
Image

the "flick-and-wave-by" method...
Image

and the "whisper-sweet-nothings-to-the-engine-and-flick" method
Image

Unfortunately none with any success of her starting today..but a great team building effort :wink:

OK then, lets call it a day, and go talk technique over a beer...

The engine is a Kinner B5. This aircraft is the only Deuce in the world with a radial engine.

Sounds really nice !!

The Bakeng eventually got started after "meesta-radial-propflinger" arrived... at this stage he's the only one that can reliably start the plane! :lol: :lol:

Another big milestone was achieved when the new engine in Harvard 7661 was fired up for the first time! :P Unfortunately as per ops normal, cameras were in short supply, the available cameras had precious little battery power left (although Swallow dit manage to take a few pics) and my cellphone's memory card were filled up just as the interesting stuff happenned. :oops: :oops: :oops: I did manage to get a few video clips and one pic, but still lousy cellphone quality :( :( Am busy downloading them and will try to post when its done.

We also had tome really beautiful, well-developed mammutus clouds... unfortunately again the picture-gremlin precludes sharing! :oops: :oops:
