What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

What are you doing to pass the time. Show us your projects big and small. Work around the house/yard. Helping out, hobbies, whatever you do to keep occupied. Might give others ideas and motivation to keep boredom and frustration at bay. Pictures would be great.

Yard work today. Turned over the compost heap, fixed 2 birdhouses, jacking old pipes that were driven into the ground and working on cleaning the garage.

How about you??????

Re: What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

Well, spent most of the afternoon on the Service Canada website. Finally able to finish that.

Now can at last get back at the build room. Once organized can proceed on the Waco.

Re: What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

Just finished a cut and polish on two Vettes, now starting two gen 2 Ram 2500's.
Very time consuming.

Re: What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

I made a balsa floor and dashboard for my Slick and ordered the graphics from B&E Graphix. It shipped on the 17th from the Louisville area by USPS and has still not arrived.

Luckily I bought a pilot from AJ Hobby a few weeks ago before things went south with Covid.

I also ordered a couple of Gens ace 6S 6000 mAh 100C batteries from Arden at AJ to pick up when he opens again. Hopefully some time in late April but time will tell.

Re: What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

I am a lucky one..... I’m still employed and get to work from home. In my off time, I work on a few planes, watch a few movies and fix things around the house. Life is still very good to us here.

I remember one of the guys I grew up with restored an old one spent a whole summer in his spare time block sanding the thing. Lots of work. Too much for me.

Re: What Are You Doing To Pass The Time Covid 19

Working on bringing life back to this ol gem. I had recently aquired it from a local member on here as a project. And a project it has been. But fun so far. Taking a break now for a day of rest. Wing is done except for the LE sheeting. I just want to have a friend look it over before closing it in. This is my first rebuild, so just want to be sure before closing it in. Fuselage is also currently under reconstruction, and got a good jump on it. New front piece and firewall are made. Just gotta make the inside ply reinforcements next before installing.
