I like your choice in airplanes... and Mike S is right, Jay Pratt is a wealth of information and he is right in your neighborhood - and a great guy. If you are in the mood to travel a little farther East, I would be happy to show you an example of how one builds an 8 in a two car garage.
I have asked plenty of questions of others and would be happy to pass along any info I can. I am currently working on the interior of the fuse so I can show you the fuse, wings and empennage. I am just north of the DFW airport.
