Default 300 Hours: Then and now

I hit 299.6 hours this morning in the RV-12iS project. It's been almost a year to the day since I took delivery of the first kit. In the first year, there was a lot of waiting around. I didn't realize how quickly the emp kit went together so I had 12 weeks to cool my jets before the wings arrived. I knocked those off in six weeks but by then the 12iS has been announced so I chose to delay delivery of the fuselage kit to get the redesign.

I'm continually amazed by how quickly this has gone together, even with the stuck-in-traffic pace.

I looked up my RV-7A build and was surprised to see that 300 hours if about a year's work on that project too. That makes sense. My routine is roughly the same: About 1-1.5 hours of work after work, and a few hours each weekend day.

Here's where that got me on the 7A:



A left elevator. Almost done.

Meanwhile, here's where (almost) 300 hours got me on the 12:



Forward ribs, and floor center section, and baggage floor of the fuselage.

I think I'm going to need that finishing kit soon.
