I have some scars as well as plenty of DNA evidence in the airframe that I can use to prove the "51%" rule....

It's not really your airplane until you spatter it with some of your blood. I managed to do that when unpacking my empennage kit!


I read your blog and saw your post about many clecos/sore hands. I learned this when I took the EAA sheet metal class, so I bought this. It proved its worth when I clecoed the horizontal stabilizer assembly together a little while ago (500 clecos).

Finished my empennage today. QB wings and fuse are currently being assembled in the Phillipines (I visited the QB factory in the Phillipines this past Spring awesome!). Expect delivery mid October.
