LOL! Are you guys calling my little girl fat?!?!? Watch out or I will tell her what you said... she will come and chew up your shoes if you aren't careful.

You are right, she looks a little ummmmm, shall I say thick, but it is just the way she is angled in the photo. The vets all say she is just perfect... and so do I!

Default Enthusiasm

What can I say? Here's my son Nate dreaming of the future. We are done with the wings (flap in background) and already tired of deburring bulkheads....it reminds me of ribs.



A few months to go before we can sit and make imitation engine type noises.

Interior painting is done. Putting stuff in and building up my nerve to tackle the canopy

Default One year building anniversary

Hi Guys, This week is my one year anniversary, and the wings are done (well kind of, Iím leaving the outboard bottom skins and wingtips of till late in the project).


So far I have invested 665 hours in the past year, which is well above my 400 hour a year projections.


I have just started on the firewall and is looking forward to the fuselage.


Regards

Rudi

Wow Rudi! That is great!

I have just skinned the top of my left wing and am completing the right tank this coming week, with February school vacation and all.

I expect to be onto the ailerons soon!

Default Fuse works

I bought my kit from a fellow MN wing member in Jan 2004. Tail feathers complete, wing in box for $5000.

I just added the wings to the fuselage on St. Valantine's day and will take a break from buidling in April as I only build during the cold winter months in WI.

I Currently fly my Titan Tornado II (Rotax 912S 100HP, 120MPH & 1500 FPM ROC, mild aerobatics) built in 2000 from my own grass strip at WI05.

My goal is to build the lightest, all manual, least expensive RV7, 320/wood prop.
Simple and easy to maintain. No frills, No Gadgets.

I have about 750 hours to date.

I estimate summer of 2008 as the finish date.
