Well, I am not as far along as some of you folks, but I just finished the HS last night and I'm feeling pretty good at the moment!



I have a simple little website I'm using to document my construction progress: Matt's RV-7 Project

I had an RV-9A for three years that I just recently sold, and I can't wait to finish the 7. Happy building everyone!

cheers,
mcb

It's a confidence-builder to actually see something
that looks vaguely like an airplane part!

Started to hang the wing skeleton...still need middle at TE supports.


PS: I updated my Time Lapse Building Slide Shows with the latest photos, well worth a watch. Just go to my website follow the RV links into the Time Lapse Slide Shows.

Another Horizontal Stabilizer done! Just finished the HS with ~90 hours on the clock. Quick build fues and wings on the way by the end of the year. Still building in the two car garage while waiting on the new hangar. Building in the garage is really convenient. I'd recommend doing this as long as you can. Also - spring for the pneumatic squeezer. Even with the QB kit, this is the way to go! Try US Air Tools for reasonable prices $350 with yoke...

Gave up on downloading the photo... You'll have to wait on the insipient RV Grin image...

Finally ready for the painters after 18 months. Last night we did a dummy run of projecting the colour scheme onto the fuselage.
Flying next month.
