Default RV-10 Beginnings

So a few weeks back I took the plunge and bought a partially completed RV-10 empennage kit from a fine member of VAF (thanks, UnPossible!)

This all was a bit ahead of my schedule (I didn't expect to be starting for at least 8 more months), but the deal too good to pass up, IMHO. So now, I have a partial kit, some tools (also courtesy of VAF Classifieds) on the way, and a big project (workshop construction) looking me in the face.

I'll be maintaining a build log at the following address, if anyone wants to stop by and check it out: http://www.brunbergs.net/?cat=14

Default Barn

Congratulations Dave.
Looks like a nice shop.
I say, build it. When it's done, you'll find a way to get it out.

See the little room above the extension on the left? The fridge (and the fermenter) are in there. If you ever make it out to KBVI, the barn is about an 8 minute drive from the ramp. Let me know if you're in the area. *we need a "beer" smiley*

I suppose that's true, but I'd rather spend time building the plane than destroying the shop
