Going to try this again with a hopefully smaller photo. Can there be anything better than a nice clear day with light winds and a Champ or Chief :D ?

Let's see some of the other member's Champs and Chiefs.

Posting is easy. Just follow Nathan's directions.

Sure thing Jeff, here you go.......

1) Go here... www.photobucket.com and register/join (it's free)
2) Once you're in photobucket, click on "My Album"
3) At the top of the page you'll see 3 buttons that way "browse"
4) Click on one of them, and find the pic on your computer you want to upload.
5) Click "Up Load"
6) Once the pic has been uploaded to photobucket, you'll see it in your album. There are 4 lines of code below the pic, Copy the code that starts with (IMG) (4th down)
7) Now back to the NAA forum, paste the code in your post and the pic should appear.
8) It should look something like this... Image
9) Then click "Preview" and the pic should appear like this....

Photobucket will automatically resize images to 800/600, which is nice because they load faster on slow connections.
Now lets go a little deeper and more advanced into posting pics. You can make a photo appear as a thumbnail, but still have an active link so when you click on the picture; the large original appears. Like this...

Thumbnail Photos:
1) Upload your photo into Photobucket

3) Back to the NAA forum. On the message page, you'll see several buttons below the 'Subject' line including the Bold, Italic, [ IMG ] and [ ULR ] buttons.
4) Click the [ ULR ] button.
5) Now in the text that has appeared in the post () insert an = sign and paste the previously copied Code after it.

From this... [url ]
To this... [url=http://i23.photobucket..com/albums/b391/nato2120/DSCN1365Medium.jpg]


6) Directly after the last "]" and with no spaces, click on the {img} button

Like this... {url=http://i23.photobucket..com/albums/b391/nato2120/DSCN1365Medium.jpg}{img}

7) Next, paste the code

Nathan,
Lets see it this works! This is the project that I am currently working on. It is a 1947 L-16A. I hope to have her in the air in mid November.
Image

The other toy is my 1985 CJ-7. I bought it new way back when I didn't mind the horse and buggy ride or the fact that A/C should be a requirement for all cars in Alabama!Image

Attached are two pictures of my 1974 Cherokee 140. She has been neglected for the past few weeks because the -16 has been taking up most of my free time. I get approx 138 mph out of her on a avg day.

I owned a Cherokee 140 for over 25 years. It was a great plane, but once I got the Champ done something had to go. So I sold it and the new owner loves it. Just couldn't afford to own and maintain two planes, especially the
##### radios and transponder. Life is much more simple and carefree with the Champ and a handheld.

Since DRJeff put his Jeep in here, here is mine.
Yes it is painted with Polytone the same color as the Champ,
what else are you supposed to do with leftover paint in the gun?

Back on skis. Looks like a long winter so I might as well get used to it!
Have the tail ski on this year for the first time. Seems to handle well. I still need to figure out how to get the plane in and out of the hangar by myself. Best thing about winter, though is that the 65 horse thinks it's an 85.

Image

This is my ski dolly set up. It works OK in the hanger and on hard surface, but probably could use bigger wheels (I used what I had at the time). Basically, I just taxi up the Hangar and put the dollys on. The big problem is getting it out if the snow is deep. We have around 10 inches right now.
