“But Something is There” is all finished being shot and we are deep in post production. But to add inspiration to the mix Paul just did a second poster for the show and this one is it. This is the official poster for our show. I was gobsmacked when he sent it. It hits all the marks.
A couple of frame grabs from the video of the ME 262 flying. One of my favorite jest to fly!
Was a busy week and a busy weekend.
The sub is finished except for BigDave’s avatar being placed on the hull in his memory. She trimmed out perfectly as the pictures show. Later tonight there will be video on our show of the trimming process.
This weekend was the FUN Fly Electric RC planes event put on by my dear friend Tony Naccaratto. It was a perfect day of flying all kinds of war birds, jets and civilian aircraft.
And gentelman there named Mike Gaasch took these wonderful inflight pictures of my 15 year old B-29 which originally flew at one of Tony’s events and came from his Hobby store back in 2004. Now closed. Mike took some great shots of this old girl Lady Luck and she always has been to. Just after this flight the speed control which was the original ESC failed once I taxied back to the pits. It glitched the system so badly it trash an aileron servo breaking its gears. If this had happened in flight the plane would have been lost. She is a lucky girl indeed. I plan to refit her with new equipment, new decals and make her all clean again for more years of flying. I also flew my Beaver, Habu and Me 262. All performed well and had many flights.
What a great week!

It took almost a year but we did it. We are finished shooting the pilot.
Yesterday we had our last shoot in Ojai at the lovely home of Dr. Chris Landon and his wife Robin who we thank so much for their kindness and hospitality!
The location behind their house was perfect for the scene we shot which is the very opening of the show before the title sequence.
I want to thank the entire crew for all they have done. Never have I had a more dedicated and professional group of talented people to work with in my entire very long career. I love all of you with all my heart!

I have been a busy bee as of late and the boat is pretty far along. I’ve painted the boat and have the hold down figured out. A Simple stainless steel screw through the bottom hull at the tip of the stern into the guide pin already provided worked like a charm.
Waiting on a Viper 15 ESC to show up from Harbor models to complete the WTC and I should be able to trim the boat in the test tank next week. Done a full week before the Regatta. Fastest boat I have ever put together.
I must have built 50 boats in my time here but this one took the cake one build time.
I’m thinking Fly Sub next. I have one of course. But first and other R-Class from OTW. Another Cient build.
More on this boat next week.
