Default Old Geezer First Model Build

I've been retired about 14 yrs. and started in RC by joining the Canton RC Club last October. Never flown Rc before. My last model build was as a teen in the 40's.
This is my first model build. I decided on the 42" Sledgehammer by OhioCombat. With phone support by Jeremy and Laine, here is the result. Already ordered my next winter build project, the 32" Guillotine by OhioCombat.
As soon as the Ohio weather is better, I will fly the Sledge and give a report on my new adventure.

Paul, the Sledge looks great. I can tell the time and effort you put into it by how smooth it is.

Its been a real pleasure of mine to speak with you directly. Its always nice to get to know people with similar interests. Take care,
Jeremy
