Darrell Jones 285 Build

G'day all, after my long wait, lots of calls to Mark, paying the customs duty. I was able to pick up my boxes. I decided to drive the 1670 kms to Melbourne to pick up the big box, which just fitted into the back of my BT50. Melbourne from where I live is 3 days driving, taking it steady. The drive down was OK, getting from the outskirts to Mark's place is about 2.5 hrs, lots and lots of idiots down there. Finally arrived at Mark's place, cuppa tea, then off to the customs to finally get my hands on the boxes. After dealing with a power hungry clerk, we were allowed to inspect the boxes, both OK. Loaded up the larger one, the longer box I had freighted back to Qld. Returned Mark home, he loaded up my GPS with instructions how to get out of Melbourne, Then started on the 1670 km drive home. Arrived home 3 days later. The box was unloaded to enable me to get it off the back of my dual cab, then I put it all back inside and covered it with a tarp. Just at this time I almost have a single place gyrocopter finished, so I decided not to start on the Mosquito until the gyro is running, but with a Mosquito sitting in a big box outside your back door, the temptation was too great.
