Default N14ZT on the downhill run

It feels like I'm on the downhill run now; one day, almost unexpectantly, a finished airplane will jump out in front of me.

Engine and firewall forward stuff mostly finished. Cowling finished too.


Wings in cradle. Wing tips attached with hinge strips.


Tail feathers on the wall.


Panel and wiring - 82.5% finished.


Panel and wiring - 82.5% finished.


Havn't updated the mykitlog site in a while, focused on working on the plane.

Congratulations, Jeff. The rest is going to happen really quickly - in fact it will become an obsession (if it isnít already). Looks great!

Hes joking, you have twice the tank volume and what looks like a lot more compressor capacity that what I have.

Yours will work for everything, mine works for all but the longest grinding sessions.

You have a great looking shop, plenty of space. If you don't already have a band saw or belt sander, these items will help tremendously. Enjoy to journey.

Hes joking,

Of course, this was supposed to be a joke. How can a 100Liter compressor with 3 engines on top be undersized? Seems Germans have no humor....except me..

I'm currently fighting with Fedex and the German customs to get my empennage kit. So no time for humor

Regarding the compressor: I tried to get one a little bit more silent than the majority. It produces 69 dB and what was it? 420 litres/minute?
Pressure is 6 to 8 bar. So about 90 to 120 psi.

I have got my tools yesterday after lots of running through the cargo area of Munich airport. Now everything is in the shop. Next step will be to build the assisting tables for the DRDT-2
Appointment with my examiner is already set up. So the building will start soon!

I recieved my RV-12 empennage kit since 2 weeks now. Fedex did a very good job. The hole delivery took one week. But the customs skrewed up. I was charged some extra percentage and are currently trying to get my money back. Good luck.... and try to take it with humor, it helps!
