I've been doing time lapse videos of almost all of my work to document the build process, but I was getting a little bored with the normal stuff, camera in one place, with me hunched over the work or looking dumb reading the manual. So I tried something new with this last one. The new angles start around 1:30.

Default Fuselage kit

I enjoyed the fuselage part of the build. When you can actually start to see the airframe come together.

I completed the fuselage kit inventory today. Just a few discrepancies to correct. E-mail sent to Van's, and I'll be on my way!

I decided to use the Cee Bailey's windscreen and windows, so I deleted those from the kit. Also, I deleted the Van's aluminum heater boxes because I intend to use the stainless heater boxes.

I am very excited to begin the fuselage construction phase, but I still have some work on the wings to complete before I can really dive in! I have been making slow but steady progress on the wings, but I hope (and think) I can really accelerate things soon.

Progress on wings! I have been putting lots of work on small tedious jobs, and today managed to start putting big stuff together--building the major subassemblies out of parts that I have been knocking out for months.

It feels great to finally have some pieces that look like parts of an airplane, and not just random bits of aluminum!

Default Started Sealing the Fuel Tanks

https://www.brunbergs.net/?p=1661



Today I started to seal the left wing fuel tank. I decided to follow the method laid out by Rick Galati here.

When I opened the can, my first thought was: “Wow, that’s a polysulfide!” And sure enough, it is, according to the manufacturer. It has a rather rich aroma.
