    mndless Don't know a thing..

    Building in the dining room... outstanding !! ;)
  3. The build is looking great. :way_to_go:

    Bit early for Xmas decor though.:big-grin:
  4. Yes I am! and my wife was the one who suggested it. It's nice building with the fire place going. I have a piece of 3/4 finished plywood on top of the dinning table and 1/2 sheet rock on top of the ply. I used a 10' builders straight edge to level the building surface and it dead nut's flat.
  5. Well the rudder is done. Some more finish sanding when it's time.fit looks good so far. Now I starting the right wing panel and as always nothing fits right and lot's of rib dimensions are way off. I think Don was drinking when he drew it. It's going to take a lot of extra time I wasn't planing on to build it right. If I didn't make a large investment into landing gear and other stuff to finish this bird I would **** can this project. Anyway I must march on word and geter DONE!! I'm doing a complete lay up on the wing, cutting new ribs, had to drill out all the wing tube holes because they for got to lazer cut them in like so many other things. Well here is some pi's and I hope this weekend I can start gluing.
    Stay warm all.

    Thought I put up some pic's of my progress. Got the right wing half done and sheeting on one side for now (still waiting for my landing gear) and I'm going to start the sheeting on the left wing this week. After I finish the sheeting I'll start building the flaps and ailerons.
  9. Left wing panel ready for sheeting.
