    Volmer VJ-24w Motorglider - 165lbs (purportedly)



    My first airplane was a Volmer VJ-24w motorglider, which I bought off ebay for $38 and am still restoring.

    I also bought a Chotia Woodhopper for $99 for the two Chotia B mint new old stock engines.

    A friend gave me a Poorboy Ultralight in need of some fixing up after being flipped.

    I am currently building a 20"x80' flatbed airplane trailer in my shop.. to take my airplanes back and forth to my local airport... as well as bring home other ultralight projects.

    I usually hang out at HomebuiltAirplanes but thought I'd give this place a try.

    Err, 140+ views on your first post here and no welcome...

    Welcome!

    Have fun with Dorithy and the girls.
    I hope you get them flying; more fun than your first flight experience, I'll bet.

    No longer instructing - just pontificating.

    I know right, you could hear a pin drop in here.

    I posted hello messages on two other boards ( Wings Forum / Sport Pilot Talk ) and same thing.

    Hello threads are kind of silly with a bunch of platitudes anyway. I'll try and make mine more interesting.

    I'll post more pictures when I finish this ultralight trailer, with some airplane models on it; I have three of those 1:18 Corsairs above.

    Back to welding!

    I made a homemade aircraft data plate for my Victoria ultralight hauling trailer today... using an Engine Stamping Die Kit and a piece of painted aluminum siding. I tried filling in the counter-relief letters with crayon... but black Indian ink worked better and really brought out those dimple corners. Painted over it with gloss clear coat to lock in the coloring.
