Bummer my air conditioner quit working last night. I called the people that installed it and they have a 5 day waiting list for repairs. I told him what it was doing and that I had been an electrician in my younger days so he told me it was probably the starting capacitor and if I felt comfortable replacing it go to the parts store near them and get one. So I just took it out and am getting ready to go get it. Hopefully that will fix it. Ha.. it was a new unit installed in 2017. Five years doesn't seem that old.

it's that time of year, huh! We started ours yesterday, and our capacitor went out last summer too.
Yeah I guess those things don't last too long. The original capacitor was round but the only thing they had was oval and it really won't fit but I have it jury-rigged until I get one I had to order on-line. I talked to the company that installed it new and told them about the 5 day wait for a service call and ask if they'd sell me one but they wouldn't sell me one. He told me about the place I could buy it but I told him they only had an oval one that wouldn't fit. So much for the customer comes first. I've used that place for many many years.

I started getting the T-28B Trojan 20% and T-28B Trojan 20% EP ready for release. I have a Panel Lines and Foam CS (with line and rivets) finished for both of them and the Radial Volume Level has been changed to 50%. So I'm very close now. I need to do a final build for both of them just to make sure everything is okay then write the release notes and take some pictures. Boy there's lots to do when you release two planes at the same time even if they are basically the same thing. Anyway I'll be glad to get a break from them before starting on the T-28D versions.

Ha.. I'm going to tell on myself. A few days ago I was doing a rebuild of the T-28B and did something dumb during the import and it was all screwed up when the import finished. I couldn't figure out what I did wrong but my work was wasted and the plane was messed up so I deleted both planes, the radial and electric versions from my system and deleted all the color schemes too. Then I went through all the directories and deleted anything to do with both planes and said heck with it. That's when I decided I needed a break and started working on the Trident Redux project. So today I went back and did a fresh build of both planes and both color schemes and have everything back to normal again. Then I took some pictures for release so the only thing left to do is write the release notes and create the release directory for both versions with all the build and release files in them.

oooohhhhh I see.
Just for some info on how I model. I have a separate directory on a different hard drive where I keep all my modeling projects so deleting a plane in RealFlight doesn't affect my original source files. And I try to keep that area backed up to an external usb hard drive too. BUT.. I haven't done that for the T-28B yet so I really should do that. I actually lost an entire hard drive not long ago and lost tons of stuff on it. It was a usb external drive that I backed up stuff on, which was a major bummer.
