As you can see…I made a few ‘alterations’ to the paint scheme…as I didn’t like the ALL silver. Also, I used 1/4in. machine screws into 1/4in. tubing for the windmill blade mounting, and the ‘tail-fin’ instead of the 3/16in in the plan. This gives it much more stability and I hope ‘wear-factor’. The paint is ‘deck’ enamel which I believe will offer greater protection from the heat around here.
The plan was GREAT, and the ‘first time trial run’ (today), it was fully balanced in all directions.
Take care, and thanks.
