I have an untrimmed Jodel waiting so you may have motivated me to get going.

The difference eighteen months makes...

He's now determined to do it all on his own - not that I previously did anything more than guide him, just that he now wants ownership of the whole process, planning, making and all.

Good to see No. 1 Apprentice back at the bench.  Pass on my regards.

The photo of the Jodel is attached. It is still awaiting outddor trimming. I tried some initial flights at our indoor hall and decided it was a bit risky. I just need a little less wind. The weight is 21 grams including rubber, and the noseblock is held in with magnets.

Looking very nice in the sunlight, Ricky. 21g sounds alright too.

Excellent work on your apprentice Jack. Ricky's nice shot of his model in the sun should be an inspiration.

My Jodel has been stuck in it's box for around 3 years. I keep forgetting about it! I must take it to the next Alfreton bash and finally get it trimmed. All I have to do is try and remember what it was doing last time out...

Lovely little design and some nice finished (And being finished!) examples on here!

Cheers,

Dan.

Dan,
        I can empathise with that sentiment. Look forward to hearing how it goes.  I have finall resorted to a log book of sorts when I remember to note things down. It certainly helps on rubber size as I like to strip a variety of sizes and maintain an even number of strands for braiding if needed. By the way the heavens have opened after about 6 weeks without rain but a nice summer.

Ricky, very nice Jodel and excellent weight for VMC model! Nice sunshine too!

We've got a westerly airflow over the British Isles - the sort that parks itself and doesn't move for a long time - but its still late winter, the earth needs the rain, deadwood needs blowing down, and I'm on a work deadline so can do without any excuses to skive off for outdoor trimming or slope soaring!
