Hello Matt,  Nice to hear from you.  The building progress has been slow, not because of the kit, but because of all the other family commitments that one needs to tend to.  I have been intending to post some pictures and should do that soon.  I have the elevator and horizontal stabilizer done.  Rear fuselage is togther and partially riveted.  Getting close to fitting the front fuselage to the rear.  We live in the country and I did get a runway layed out last fall.  It is a bit rough so I built a roller.  Should post some pictures of that here too.  Hope to have a couple friends, one with a Taylorcraft and one with a Rans S7, give the runway a try sometime this summer.  If you would like to take a look at the CH 750 project you are welcome to do so.  Could fly to Tomah Y72 and I could pick you up.  I'll send you my email address.  Jerry

Hi Phillip! thank you so much for the invitation. I will definilty take you up on it. I think my wife and I actually met at the open hangar day. We were there for the rudder workshop and were able to bring home our 801 rudder that weekend. Looking forward to speaking with you more in the future as our project moves forward.
