I'm lucky I got to chat with Tom for a few minutes at Oshkosh about his beautiful airplane he built.

Congratulations Tom! Well deserved!

A fair amount of Tom's RV gestation took place in my hangar so I got to see everything under the paint too. If you're thinking you're going to build one as nice or better there's a little tidbit about Tom's RV you need to know, he color matched the rivets!

I must say this was richly deserved--I have never seen a nicer RV-7 in terms of the quality of the build, fit & finish, and attention to detail.
Hi Pat,

Shelby Smith from Nashville. Agreed, I parked next to Tom, had a great time looking at and talking to him about his plane. Great Oshkosh this year.
