Nice job Greg. I remember that day as though it was yesterday, and the nice part is that it gets better!

Congrats Gregg!
That's a big moment for any RV builder but HUGE for an RV4 builder, especially in the quick build, pre drilled generation!

As mentioned by Marc, I too remember doing that like it was yesterday, even though in January it will be 20 years ago!
Thanks for sharing.

Merry Christmas!

PS: Save your Jigs, if nobody wants them, build a workbench! Something to remember the hard work by...

Yes, all DYNON but will only be day VFR for now. Struggling with photobucket but here's the electrical system, simple drawing in powerpoint but it makes sense to me Will try to make the EFIS planning scheme to be possible to share shortly.

Default Early stage restart

http://s1369.photobucket.com/user/pi...tml?sort=2&o=9
After a short break, I decided to restart building my -4. I pulled out the parts for the vertical stabilizer, followed the instructions and used what I learned from messing up the horizontal stab (seen in background). "Building" a 4 requires much more attention to detail than "assembling" a 7, which I started 10 years ago. When I finish the vert stab, I will return to replacing bad parts of horizontal stab and finish it. Then? Press on!

Default Finally starting to see some more progress...

I got the fuselage far enough along, that we all got a chance to sit in it.



I have been working on the panel, forward skin, cockpit rails are drilled, roll bar is drilled, front seat is done, lots of stuff ready to prime.


Floorboards are done except for footwells. I am VERY close to ordering finish kit.
