I have not had a great deal of time since returning from Dallas. Wife had a health issue that put her in the
hospital. Prognosis is this morning.

What little time I have had resulted in a complete revamping of the seats with more detail. Sam told me
yesterday he had completed design of the instrument panel illumination. Not a simple on-off system. He
described repetitive and random sequencing. Look forward to installing it. One of Sam's many expertise
is electronics design.

.......... .............

Paulette, the love of my life, and the best part of me, passed August 14th at 1:30 am.

A celebration of Paulette with her friends will occur October 19, 2019 at the school she
worked in for 33 years. A web site has been created and growing with photos of Paulette
with family and friends.

Friends and visitors are offered an opportunity to register an email address to receive
details of when and where friends will gather to celebrate Paulette M. Clayman's life.

At the bottom of the web site there is an area for comments, remembrances, and what
she would have preferred in lieu of flowers.

Don,
Thank you. I have always looked upon this community for project support. I posted my loss here
and no where else because in a moment of sadness I was somehow drawing strength from those
who have contributed support and resource for my B-47 project. Though my greatest supporter is
gone, this site and those contributing to it are a great inspiration.

Interesting thing about staying busy... Paulette would have wanted me to continue my obsessive compulsive
symptoms. Back at revisions to the original cockpit tub and ejection seats. Glad to report I am much happier with
latest iteration of these. Will continue and post a YourTube when I feel it is fit for public viewing.

Jim,

Thank you. Paulette was a beautiful angel when we were together, and now. Mourning is something we all
should prepare for as this is a natural state of mind. Your post contributes to my moving through the process.

Thanks again,

Ed, that looks like a great place to fly. Paved, grass and water, all in one place. Wish I could be there. Have a great time.

Its been a long time since we walked out in that 36 acres of grass. Like it happened yesterday...Though early-on
there were multiple events each year things got a little long on the tooth so it was reduced to a multiple day War
Bird gathering and the B-17 ~ Big Bird event.

Prone to about four inches of water retention when monsoon season arrived the initial events were more like a mud
puddle gathering. Entering and especially leaving at the end of a three or four day event required assistance of a
front end loader nestled beside a quonset hut (hangar) used for storage of member's larger models that otherwise
would be time consuming to assemble for flight.

A grass 1:1 air strip is behind the two story spectator/pit pavilion. This became our parking lot for the typical 5000
spectators at each event. These properties were originally rice farms, designed to retain water. Gumbo, a mixture of
clay and sand is "the" soil composition so anything less than a gravel road turns into what resembles the contents
of a potter's wheel. Today a nice gravel entrance and "adjusted" drainage keep things as they should be.

Anyone within four hours of Monaville, TX. will be rewarded with flights of some of the best scale aircraft (recip &
electric) from all across the country. Lodging is not an issue as there are motels a short drive away from the field,
electrical hookups for motor homes onsite, and plenty of good old Texas countryside to look up at all those stars. I
believe a series of hand claps occur at this point in the song...;^) "You-all come now...Ya Hear?"

Barry Raborn will display his Lockheed F-104 and demonstrate his covering technique as he finishes his giant scale P-51 at Bomber Field on September 20th at 7:00 pm. I explain surface finishing techniques used by Top Gun, World Jet Meet, AMA NATs, Scale Masters first place winners & five Toledo WEAK Signals (Best Of Show) winners.

Each attendee receives a generous quantity of for their scale projects. Everyone attending has an opportunity to win a FK5 (1/5th scale) Aluminum Finishing System given to a lucky attendee. Don't miss an opportunity to see How2 apply and finish to replicate a natural or polished appearance.



You can't win $164.99 worth of unless you attend this 7:00 PM seminar on Sept. 20 at Bomber Field USA in Monaville, TX...just a short drive West of Houston, TX off I-10 North of Brookshire on FM359. Bring a friend and double your chance to win the FK-5.
