No typo. I got a DRDT-2 also but I have found the VAF to be an excellent place to pick up clarifications and tips. There are some really sharp serial builders on here who can answer questions and offer pointers.

Default Kit #140208

So, after a year of planning, preparing, researching, dreaming and talking to my wife (very supportive, I am very lucky), the tail for kit #140208 left the factory yesterday on its way to the frozen landscape of New Jersey.

Let the adventure begin...

Hey Julio,

Welcome to the club. You'll enjoy unpacking that box. The wife and I inventoried ours together and it went pretty fast, especially considering the amount of stuff in there!

Default Kit #140210

Hello Everyone, I'm a little late listing, but two weeks ago another RV14 empennage arrived in the frozen white wasteland of New Jersey. Serial number #140210. Mine is the 14A nose wheel. The create arrived in great shape (Old Dominion) and all is there.
After inventorying, I spent a week reading through the many primer war threads. I made my decision and it's a secret. I don't need to keep second guessing myself.
I will try not to ask to many dumb answered already questions. This is my first kit and quite a large expensive one, but I probably only have one kit in me. I have also learned from my 58 years, is that, you need to get what you want the first time. You'll never be satisfied and end up spending more money.
Thanking you for your help in advance. Mark
