My wife walked into the shop the other day and exclaimed "Wow, that looks like a silver bullet"! Sheet metal and cowl are pretty much done. Now for the canopy installation.

Excellent!!!

It's starting to look like an airplane.

And there lies the problem Dave. The more it looks like an airplane the more I realize just how much I have to do and reality slaps me in the face again.

Look at that avatar picture in my signature, and vow not to let yourself get sidetracked like I did.

When I took the airframe apart to cover, I thought I would be flying within the year...then came a lot of other things...

I will finish the old girl one of these days.

Nice work! That is looking great! I like the nosebowl. I like the airplane at this stage, you can see all of your hard work! You spend the rest of the time covering it up!

Keep going,
Ron

Podnah, that looks just fandamntasstic! Iím welding up the cabanes right now and, as you know, that is not a job to be rushed. Rather one enjoys working toward the very best we can do at particular part of The Project. HOWEVER, I need some to see some eye candy and where your airplane is right now is the next stage for me. Being able to visualize my plane at the stage yours is in is like the carrot on the stick for me. It really looks like an airplane now, how cool. By the way, your photos of your cabane setup and execution made the process a LOT easier for me.
Thanks Buddy!
Mike

Others have been so great in helping me with advice allong the way I'm glad I can finally be the carrot on the stick!


Glad the pictures helped Mike. Dave, I'm starting to wonder if you're not letting us in on things and soon we will see a first flight post?? I remember when I didn't think I would ever be at the stage you are at.
