While sitting here in my lazy boy tinkering around with the F-15 and F-16, I had a little moment of appreciation for this hobby. Maybe it’s the coffee kicking in, but it’s fun being a kid and pretending that these builds are Mach 1, streaking through the sky. I’m a dork, I know. All you model builders out there know what I’m talking about! It’s a great hobby to partake in and I am having fun.
So not much at all to report on here at the workbench with my back injury still limiting me on how much I can accomplish. The good news regarding my back is that I visited the chiropractor this morning and I am on the cusp of recovery. While I am not out of pain just yet, I do feel some relief. That relief is giving me a decent window to do a little work and I am seizing all my opportunities at this point.
Back to the builds now. Canopy installation went as well as I could have hoped. The fit looks pretty good so far. I also did some sanding on a pesky seam within the F-15’s nose section. This seam will be conquered! It has been a few rounds now and I will not give up. I thought I had it handled but noticed the slightest error so more filler was applied yesterday morning. Sometime tonight, I will hobble out to the garage to get some primer applied to each of the canopies to see where I need to add some filler. The landing gear and all the ordnance remain on my nagging priority list. I might try to tackle some of that tonight.
