Awesome, welcome to the madness

I do spend a fair amount of time deburring, especially the larger parts. I typically apply the nail test - if I run my finger nails along the edge and it catches, I deburr a bit more there until it doesn't anymore.

Default Part 3

Wings are just about done. Need to attach the fuel tanks and rivet the flaps together. Got the Fuse kit a littler earlier this time. With the wing kit I was without a project for a month and that just plain sucked. Lesson learned!

This box was quite the monster. The put the 1 long piece of angle in the box kind of sprung so it pushed against the side, and it ended up popping open the box side. Its bent a bit when you look at it down its length (8+ feet), but hoping thats not a big deal. Also wierd that there's only 1 big longeron, would think there would be two. We'll see what inventory says!

The bigger issue is the bent F-1076 bottom skin. Of course its the biggest skin in the whole box. I have an email into Barb to see what my options are. Since its on the bottom I don't mind an imperfection down there. But I really don't want it to crack 8 years into flying either.

Default 41949

Congrats on the fuselage delivery!

Noting the earlier posts, Iím 41949, which I ordered 11/26/2018, almost 24 months to the day after yours, which works out to 8.3 kits per month over those two years.
