Wow it's nearly a month since posting an update I have been working away on it fuselage very nearly complete ESC and motor are in and tested with the massive prop kind of blew everything around in the hanger with barely any throttle . The truth is I find it difficult to focus on keeping the thread updated I have been experiencing severe stomach pain and am under going a series of invasive tests it may not be good news for me but it's not confirmed yet so am trying to be optimistic . I will get some progress pics together asap.

Hi Martian, that is bad news on the health, hope things improve. We have all had a bad few months I think

Keep the faith and a little a day will keep the enthusiasm going, not that I should talk, mine has waned over Christmas.

Look forward to seeing how things are progressing

Cheers

Danny

Hi Martian. I wish you all of the best with the health problem, stay positive. It is the sort if thing that we all worry about, particularly as we get older, but the medical profession seems to get better at dealing with this kind of thing so optimism is the word.

I am fretting a bit about not being able to get on with my top wing for a few days but being in Victoria Australia does have its compensations. I am staying with family very close to Moorabbin airfield and the air museum there with many interesting planes, including a Beaufighter. On Friday I am going to the Australian National Air Display at Avalon, which will be something else. Could be 35C though, but I’ll put up with that! I’ve got a big hat.

Welcome to OZ Colin. I had planned to attend the Avalon Air Show, but it didn't happen unfortunately.

Enjoy. All the best Graeme (My apologies for being "off topic". )

Hi Martian,

Just reading about your health problems and I really don't know what to write you except for just remaining optimistic.

I experienced that keeping your brain 'occupied', while waiting for results, is the best thing you can do.

Keep up your mojo, mate.

Cheers

Chris

Hi Martian,

Very sorry to hear of your health problems. I just wish that words of sympathy and encouragement will help. One thing that can help is having something to focus on and occupy the mind, taking the one's attention off the problem, as Chris has suggested. Concentrating on the Fury may help.

Best wishes, and good luck. You have a lot of support from everyone who has been watching your thread.

William

Hello Martian,

Regarding the Fury build, I'm afraid I didn't even start my construction.

I had a total disk 'crash' on my previous laptop and I lost all the research I did to 'resurrect' the former ex-Belgian Congo K4316, leaving me behind with an very uncomplete back-up.

I even met the daughter of the person that had done the rebuild of the full size, but all that info and pics are gone too.

As a result I went back to my other hobby, being acrylic painting on canvas. I'm now close to finish my last works as we have an exhibition during the last week-end of March.

After that I hope to find the mojo to go on and finish my Vicomte 1916. Do you remember Vicky? ...

All the best to you.

Cheers

Chris

Sorry to hear that Chris we rely so heavily on our it equipment i try to remember to back up to a spare hard drive. With regard to your progress i was talking about Vicky , doesn't matter what you do as long as the brain is kept working in between building i read a book or two a week , determined to keep the grey matter busy
