  Jaimie Mantzel finally went big time. He finished the giant robot,,but the breakthrough came when He sold his small robots to Nerf,,who is now selling the bots at Walmart.  So Jaimie had enough of this society,,,sold everything ,bought two islands in Panama and is in the process of building a big Cat. Good for him..

It's not done,,but there is light at the end of the tunnel .  200 Hrs of polishing. 2 Gallons of Dad's stripper. Close to 500 rivets shot and bucked.  The motor is awesome. A 1944 Johnson Speeditwin. I started the slatted floorboards today. 300 yr old American Chestnut . Open cell foam covered in Sumbrella.  Soon it will be too cold and back to building Robert.
