Look what found itself a new home. I was like a young boy on christmas morning. I will say, this is the only way to do it. No problems what so ever. Now I just have to put it all together.

Default Get ready

Lots of dumb questions coming soon to a forum near you.

It will be slow going for awhile, it's flying/grass mowing/gardening season.

It's looking good!

Your post reminded me that I had posted a similar photo during my build. (scroll a bit)

My post looks a little odd with my current avatar

I put 1.4 on the hobbs in the smooth evening air a couple of hours ago! It was just wonderful.

Keep going, you'll be flying before you know it! Enjoy the build !!

The fuselage is back together and the riveting has begun! Very satisfying after so much preparation.
