    Aircraft Carrier !! Wow .. that's a job history that only few can claim . Extremely hazardous working conditions as I've watched on TV . I had a neighbor about 25 years ago that also worked on a carrier .. He was the guy that helped land the planes on the decks . He was always being 'tempted' to come back into the service when he retired because they really needed his type skills.

    ten four on the preserving what you have .. I'm careful when we go to the range and I wear a Good Set of Ear Protection and safety glasses as required . Lot's of interesting folks on this forum.

    Ordered a Dynacorn Grabber Hood and Scoops yesterday. Putting them on the '70 Maverick before we make the HRPT in June. Looking forward to receiving .. Already have the paint and painter scheduled for beginning next week. Painter and booth are across the street so they won't be hard to find. Also ordered a 3:80 eight inch Tru-Track Third Member for the 70 .. I'm building a 331 fuel injection stroker which will be installed by the end of the summer . Looking forward to " this " build . My Daughters Maverick is finally FINISHED .. ( Hoo-ray ) ..

    Looks easier to me to start from scratch than modify some.

    Got an awesome set of aluminum slots for the Comet for my birthday, thanks to my beautiful wife! (haven't installed them yet though)

    Also thanks to MikeSadler67 for making them available and letting them go for an excellent price
