Today the wings were bolted (3 bolts and 2 pins) for the first time. And I took it on its first official airport taxi. No rudder, ailerons, flaps, but the stabilizer and elevator were there just not controllable.
Burned the brakes in and had a very enjoyable time. The temps were all good. I really like the way this Corvair sounds and pulls.
The warp drive prop is in the works and should be here shortly.
Meanwhile, I will keep building.
