Hello everyone (again) just checking in to let you know my advance since Feb 2015 (almosr a year!) Wow! I have my rudder, rear fuselage and firewall finished; about to round up forward fuselage ready to join rear fuselage; I have been a bit busy at work, but slow advance mainly responds to the fact I have been enjoying myself (no stress) with no particular finish date. Just sharing in case any body else is going slowly, dont worry...be happy! and have a wonderful 2016. My best wishes to you all builders and flyers out there from Ecuador!

Finished fitting the cabin frame yesterday, wow what a task but its done now.Tonite I start on fitting the firewall which I am sure will have a few curved balls waiting for me but sure it will work out.Plans building and to an extent a kit build you have to massage the parts so to say to get it all in place and lined up.I must do a few photos and update my page as well

OK then it seems I am on the right track leaving f. fuselage pending; what have you completed to this point?

Hi Jonathan as you plans building you can't join the rear and forward fuselage until you have made the wings. Reason being you need to measure the wing mount brackets to marry up with the mounting points of the cabin frame brackets.

Hi Paul seems we are on the same page in the building process; after I finish riveting forward fus.,  I am thinking of postponing the joining of it to rear fuselage due to space limitation in my house; I don't see a problem jumping to wings...do you?

Hi Jonathan, my build has gone slow this last year due to moving house 3 times!!!

Just got the rear and forward fuselage joined now working on the cabin frame and firewall forward panels.

Hope 2016 I can have my plane up and flying and if not its no problem it will fly when its ready
