It’s about time Chuck bought another part for his Corsair. Although at this pace it will still take a few more weeks than expected.
I personally would like to see him buy a fuselage or at least an engine but we don’t always get to tell him what to do anymore. By now he has completely taken on his own persona and we’re all just along for the ride.
We continue with our “ordering parts motif”. Nice try there, Chuck! You guys were spot on when you guessed that the last strip was based on experience. Actually, I think no matter what your hobby is, there will be a glossy catalogue to flaunt in your face all the great stuff you can’t afford.
We’d like to welcome all the new people who joined our Chicken Wings Group on Facebook recently. Seems we’ve gained critical mass or something! Yay! If we continue to grow at this rate, the whole planet will be in our Facebook group in just roughly 5 million years!
Will Chuck ever finish his Corsair? I guess you’ll have to wait for 30 years and see! As you know, good things come to those who wait. I sure hope we’ll still be around then to crack jokes about him!
Julio can be so mean sometimes. But then, it is important to be realistic with your goals. Has anyone of you folks ever participated in a Red Bull Flugtag?
Also, we would like to remind you that our contest is still going on! Simply tell us what your favorite strip is, post it in our forum or on our facebook page and you will have the chance to win a “Silver Chicken”! You have until Friday to enter!
The joy you can find in another’s misfortune can be short-lived. I think Julio should have seen that one coming way earlier…
I don’t know why Julio is that shocked. After all, scrap metal isn’t all that worthless nowadays!
Talking about scrap, my refrigerator broke down yesterday, and I spent about two hours just trying making it stop beeping. I ended up having to take out the cicruit board and remove the beeper with my soldering iron… Good times, good times. Fortunately it’s quite cold outside right now, so I can stash my food on the porch in the meantime.
While Mike is returning from the Helicopter Expo in Dallas, Chuck is busy working on his F4U Corsair. If he keeps up this speed, his baby will be flying as early as 2085!
And another step closer to the completion of the project!
On a completely unrelated note, I would like to announce that we will switch shop systems soon! So the old online shops will be gone and replaced by a new system that is more integrated in our website design and, more importantly, much easier and quicker to handle for the customers. More on that soon!
Also, everybody in the US who thinks about shopping for Christmas presents: Our US Online Shop will be closed down for a couple of weeks during December. Mike will be providing more detailed information shortly, but be sure to place your orders in time!
We have a winner for our photo contest!
Man! This was a tough contest to judge. All weekend we’ve already been racking our brains because there were so many good and funny pics. And then the late entries made it even tougher!
But there can only be one winner for this contest so we chose the photo we thought was fun, exciting, creative, crazy, and cool all in one. It’s the photo posted by CharlieAT. So, congratulations CharlieAt, you won a Silver Chicken!
Actually we liked all his photos so it was even hard to choose from within them. HOWEVER! This doesn’t mean the other weren’t great. Like I said, there were so many awesome ones that deciding this truly gave us a headache! Thank you all for participating and showing off all these great shots. I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all the entries as much as we did.
And we will have another contest very soon so don’t give up if you didn’t win this time.
I just wanted to remind everybody that there are only 2 days left until we pick a winner for the Photo Contest!
