Starting to work on my 601 Rudder and just had an epiphany, ....can I do both kit and plans? I'm a beginner builder with very little experience and feel that I can accomplish the rudder, stab, and fuselage but I am a little reluctant to visualize me building the critical wing via plans only, as well as the landing gear. Can I just order those as kits when the time comes?

Zenith offers component kits as well as individual parts, independent of whether you are scratch building or kit building. If you are concerned with scratch building the wings then I suggest ordering the wing kit and just do the assembly work. If you are concerned with scratch building a single part, such as the wing spars, then order the spars and scratch build the rest. In the builders section of the Zenith Aircraft website there is a online parts store available to builders to order individual parts or component kits.
