Default Matched Hole...just too easy

All fiberglass tips installed with #4 or #6 screws and nutplates.


This thing practically fell together in a few weeks of part time work. The vertical stab was built in just one day not counting waiting for the interior primed parts to dry. Matched hole...just too easy.

Default Which RV?

Looks like you could not decide which type of RV to buy, so you
got both - the flying type and the camping type!

Nice looking 8 - please post some more pictures.

Keeping with the spirit of this thread, here's my latest status. Notice that mean looking MT prop!

Default OK, here are a few more Mickey...

I think I've got this figured out now...of course, the outside looks like the outside of any other unpainted RV-8, so here are some interior shots:

Left side of the cockpit...



Right side of the cockpit...



A Shot of the DJ Lauritsen Interior....



And the panel I put on another thread!

Oh, the four-wheeled RV belongs to my "Ex", who is letting me use it as a break room during assembly work at the airport - very nice, except that the 15 Amp circuit at the hanagr can't support the A/C and the shop air compressor at the same time....but it's nice to have a restroom, soft couch, and a place to keep drawings!
