What happens to your building? Do you stop for the summer, slow down or spend late evenings gluing balsa?

Personally building stays roughly the same pace, slow and enjoyable

I myself slow down a lot in the building dept. For me, the fall and winter are for building and I go full tilt (usually many weeknight and every weekend I am working on modeling stuff) but when the flying starts, well, I fly!

I builtd and repair mostly during the summer. Winter days are too short, plus if I can't fly it right when its ready, I don't get tempted. If I know I can go flying, I will make sure its ready to fly.

Building? Who has time to build? It's all RE-building for me! (Maybe if I could just learn to fly right ...)

And it seems to go on and on....

I'm kinda like Nuker, I try to keep it steady all year.

I mostly concentrate on r/c building in the winter, and when summer comes, I work on some free flight stuff.

We only get a few months to fly, might as well spend that time flying !

You mean there's seperate building and flying seasons? To think I've been doing it wrong all this time! Out here, I think it's more a case of building weather and flying weather!

Building during the week remains constant, weekend shop time gets squeezed into the later hours (unless it rains).

I always have good intentions. Remember last fall? There was a thread on what projects we were going to be doing for the winter! I listed about a dozen. Well here it is Spring and flying time and I only got about 40% done of what I had planned.

Now I find myself scurrying about trying to get those necessary projects done in time! I guess, like others, I'll have to cram in some late evenings working in the shop so I can fly during the day! For me its a matter of space, which I hope to have corrected within the next couple of weeks, building a storage shed to hold the junk from the garage. Then I will have the use of the whole garage to setup shop with room enough to move around and get some quality building done. Well, thats the plan!!

I did pretty much nothing this past winter. My workshop/garage was used as storage during basement reno, so no room for building. Now, like a few others, I'm trying to get a few hours during the week to finish a couple of projects. If nothing else, they will be waiting for me this fall.
I never crash...I land with style!
