The RV-10 is progressing. I have ordered the wing kit and it should be here in mid June. I have started mounting the empennage onto the tail cone last night.

Lots more detail on my build blog:

Nice work! It's fun when things start looking like a real plane.

Default Still waiting on wings.......

An update since I have not posted one in a while. Emp/Tail cone are basically done less the fiberglass work. I am pretty much out of parts so I am waiting on my wing kit.

As for the wing kit I really got behind the kit lead time/crating/shipping curve on this one....

Van's lead times seem to be higher than what I am used to and they missed their estimate a little bit. Also the freight company is taking their sweet time getting the kit to me.

Hopefully I will get my wing kit tomorrow.

Best advice is to order as early as you can otherwise you might find yourself waiting and waiting and waiting. The bright side is I have been able to do a bunch of stuff around the house that I have been neglecting and have had more free time to exercise!

Timing is everything! When I finished my tailcone, I took a year off from building altogether trying to decide if I wanted to continue. When I decided I did and ordered my wing kit, there was over a 6-month backlog due a spike in orders from Brazil. So my building hiatus ended up stretching to about 19 months.
