Great job on the progress.

You and I started the fuse at the same time, but now you have blown by me, you are so far ahead its like proof of the Doppler effect.

But please keep posting. You are really helping me. After reading your posts, it is almost like I am doing everything for the second time.

John thanks for posting, I am really glad that my posts are helping you out, that is really the reason I keep posting so much here. Trying to give back a little. Keep up the good fight!

Default In retrospect ....

.... were I to build another one, I would definitely build a rotisserie. Over the entire built it is both a timesaver and a backsaver.

Well school is back in session so looks like my progress will slow down a bit. Oh well, still trying to work on the plane every night. After riveting some things like the top deck and gussets it is time to work on the top skins.

I also made what I am assuming is a boo-boo but I have an email into Van's to see. I trimmed the aft end of the top j-stringers as all the other ones were trimmed on both ends the same way. After putting them in it appears that this bulkhead faces the other way and could be inserted without trimming. The riveted area will still be the same but I removed some of the support material. We will see what they say.

Here is a shot of what I'm talking about.

After reaching out to Van's about the accidental trim they said no problem at all and build on!
