Not much longer now! Maybe about another ten minutes! That's what I tell people who ask!

This week I am starting on the tanks! My ProSeal is on order along with my flop tube!

This was riveted together over the holiday weekend.

Next step, the center section.

Getting closer to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Put together & take it apart. Here we have drilled the rear spar. At present, wingroot fairings & platenuts have been fitted. Wing tips have been adjusted
& Creative Air Nav lights & landing lights installed. Presently working on the instrument panel.
