Just a note to compliment the newsletter team. I really liked Charlie Wagner's alodine article. I wish I could have seen his demo. Even a plastic airplane like my Glasair has lots of metal parts. I alodine them but my procedure will change slightly thanks to the information in that article.
Project update: I mated the wing and fuselage on my Glasair II-S FT on Saturday, 19 Oct 96. That happened to be precisely the 5th anniversary of the kit delivery to my front door. The wing will remain attached for a time but will come off again to simplify other construction tasks. Nevertheless, it is an exciting milestone to see all the big pieces put together for the first time. I am in the market for a Lycoming IO-360 if anyone has a line on a good one.
