Online Community of Zenith Builders and Flyers
Talking to a co-worker about the build project today I had to look up when I started and according to my blog I picked up my first rudder piece a year ago this week.
I only get to build on weekends so I'm not sure if I am doing well or not (or even if I should care, just enjoy the ride) but I've spent roughly 80 hrs and have completed the rudder, the slats, the flaperons and the stabiliser; elevator is on the bench waiting to be deburred, and wings kit is in its crate at my brother-in-law's warehouse.
Before starting this project I truly was completely useless around the house, and I'm not saying I am in any way competent now to build a plane but when I look at the pieces I've built, I have to admit quite a sense of satisfaction. Can't imagine what it will be like if I actually get the frame finished.
Throughout this year I've had some great help from people here, and thank you all for that. It's nice to know I'm not the only beginner here making mistakes, helps alot.
