Talk about bringing back old threads from the abyss! :)

Was cleaning my other workshop, and found (well, "found" would be more appropriate as it's not the kind of stuff you found by mistake under a piece of cardboard!) my good old Lo100!
Brought it back home, removed the 2 kgs of dust from it, and set it up together...

Well, should be back on the slopes soon!

And no, before you ask, the daughter don't fit in it!

Refurbishing continues :)

Worked on the new elevator. All more or less stock, but I just added a piece of 3mm plywood where the screws for the stab goes. By experience with the other one, this was a weak point.

Much better now! Elevator ready to be covered.







Next.. A bit of TLC on the fuselage. I might keep my original servo layout. Happy, that one is nearly back in the air after all these years!

Oh, and found some old photos!

That was dedication!

I remember when I brought back the box in my car. Half of it was outside the car  :lol:

Happy days  :D
