Okay.  Last one.  Really.  After this one I’m putting the Maker away until I get everything glued up.

Back in the mid 80’s, when RCModeler published Fred Reese’s Simple Citabria (here), and a few months later the Simple Cub (here), I had to build them.  Fred Reese designed at least 16 planes around the Ace Mini Foam Wing.  I didn’t want to build all of them, but I did want to build a few of them.  The Citabria and the Cub were both lots of fun, and I flew the heck out of them.  A friend said he really liked the Citabria, and since I just took a job a couple of states away, I gave it to him.  I don’t remember what happened to the Cub, but I probably gave that one away too.  Ever since, I’ve wanted to build them again, but Ace stopped making the foam wings in the mid-90’s.  I’ve thought about doing a built up wing and building a couple more, but it just seemed like too much effort.  But I don’t have that excuse any more.  So I spent this evening drawing up a balsa replica of the Ace foam wing using egg crate construction.  Then I downloaded the plans for the Simple Citabria from OZ and drew those up also.

I DID IT!  I REALLY DID IT!!!!

I packed up the Cricut machine in its box and put it in the storage room!  Now I can finally start building!  I told you I didn't need the Cricut machine.  I told you I could do without it.  I told you I could stop any time I wanted.  I told you I could, uh....
