One Week Wonder - Anyone Can Help!

I stopped by to check on the progress of the One Week Wonder this morning, and found this gentleman removing blue plastic from parts destined for the empennage. The fairly simple - but still important - task was assigned when the man (who identified himself as "Richard") wandered in and asked if he could help.

He said that he was interested in building in the future, and wanted to learn the basics.
