work is going well. The kit is well laid out. It helps if you have room to get parts out of the boxes and on a shelf where you can find them easily. The pictures Zenith posted are helpful at this stage. Each time I go over them I understand something better. I think we are a bit ahead of the manual but Roger has been courteous and helpful when we call. The controls and cockpit area are complicated looking but when we get to it, we will probably find that the rule of "do the holes line up?" will make it clearer. One of the really smart things on the kit is that the rivet spacing is changed enough to keep you oriented to the right place for any part. Still , the manual would be a help.
we plan to have the cockpit frame and control stick powder coated.
