That sucks - do you know have a phone or tablet? (hell, even a Kindle has a camera?)

If not you could always just get an old compact - this is the one I take most of my WIP shots with...

A phone? I have a flip phone... and no tablet. BUT I think there is an old camera sort of like the one you posted hiding in the house somewhere. Trouble is, we just moved so who knows where it is

Ah man - I love V-tail Bonanza's, I always hoped to work on one when I was an engineer but never got the opportunity!

Sweet! I built a 1/72 scale one of those. V-tails.Cool aircraft! I built mine because my brother was planning on buying one when He graduated college and passed the bar for Aviation Law. He died before he could realize those plans.

Somewhere I have a photo I took of the 10,000th V-tail Bonanza. It toured all the dealerships and I was working at one as a salesman at the time. I am pretty sure I have flown every model of the Bonanza that was built through the B-36TC. All fine airplanes, I preferred the A-36 version.

Thanks Stuart. It's been many years now so the pain is diminished somewhat. I built the Cessna 172 that he trained in and solo'd in, as well as the Beechcraft V-tail he wanted.

I appreciate that offer! But I got a new camera today, so it is no longer an issue
