One sweet airplane Mike.  Make sure you get current and get some transition training before you start test flying.  It would be a shame to bend up such a beautiful airplane because your flying skills had withered while you were busy building.  Check out the add http://www.flybuzzair.com/ just to the right of this page.

The fruit of your labor payoff, congratulations! and happy birthday to both.

Fly smart and have fun. PS It's a looker.

Thanks all! Now it's time to transition from being a builder, consumed by concentrating on the next steps in the build process, back to being a pilot.  :-)

I love it! I'm further convinced that going old school (limited paint, maximum shine) is the way to go...

Congrats, a job well done. Enjoy flying off the test hours.

Congrats!

Man, that is one good looking aircraft!

Can I entice you into helping me polish my bird?

Oh, and its shiny, too! Still gota finish my polishing, but I don't notice it at 3000 feet!
