Default RV-9A WV

Hello to all,
I am trying this once again as my first thread got locked and I could not update it. Not sure why, maybe I did something wrong. Anyways I will try and post a link to my Photobucket which has many pics of my progress. Have finished the Vertical Stab., Rudder, and nearly complete with the Horiz. Stab.
Thanks, Phil

Default Steady progress

Making steady progress on the build. Wings are ordered and scheduled to crate on the 18th of April. Attached is a link to Photobucket. For some reason pictures are not in order. Hope it works. All I have left to do is attaching the fiberglass tips and mount the Trim Servo in left elevator, I think that's it. Ready to take a break from building for a couple of weeks. Looking forward to Sun N Fun. Hope to meet some RVer's in Florida. Thanks, Phil

Thumbs up

That's a good speed Phil. After your fuel tanks are done ( estimate from 70 to 100 days with your pace) put deposit on the fuse. Enjoy building the wings you will be able to close them solo.
