This project currently sits on the Shelves of Doom at the moment. Back in Sept 2014 I had cataract surgery on both eyes and IOLs installed with Torric correction lenses. The right eye worked fine and no problems. The left eye has had some issues. The IOL kept shifting and was then replaced with an IOL that "rarely if ever fails". Famous last words as I watched the Titantic sink in my eye. Literally I watched this thing pop out and fall to the bottom of my eyeball. Vision changed just that fast. Needed to wear an eye patch for various tasks but the girlfriend thought is was sexy. The next surgeon had to fish it out, drain the vitrious fluid, refill and put in a new single vision lens between my iris and cornea. Recently I had PRK laser surgery done to the cornea and that is now healing. Five surgeries and still praying for things to work however I would still recommend the surgery even though I am the poster child of what can go wrong and in my case it is a long list.
Some day I will get back to this beast and finish it but not soon. This has been an ongoing project since 2006. Recently I did look in the box and review things that I have done. I still want to rip out the resin office and adjust its placement. The nose strut is still a issue and maybe the 12th try is the charm. Recent advances with 3D printing may come into play with this too. And did I ever screw up the intakes. I might start over if I could find a replacement fuselage. Maybe Dr. FM has one.
I did find out that the airframe is now on a stick in front of a VFW hall near New Orleans, LA.
