Well summer and fall came and went and I didn't do a darn thing on the plane...debating on whether to get my materials ordered so I can work on stuff over this coming winter. But will I have time? Home repairs and other life setbacks have really gotten in the way!

Got my first round of materials ordered...should be here in time for the long holiday weekend. I'll post pics of my progress on Sunday.

I agree. I just need to get my materials rolling. I've been bogging myself down with the planning, instead of just getting to work! I think I'll order some rolls of sheet & a few angles to get started. Even if I'm only cutting out parts, at least I'll be building...I can do that all winter long.

Gregory - Seems your building from scratch. I did (5 years). You HAVE to work on the plane at least 10-15 hours a week are you're not going to finish in a reasonable length of time. Order material like Damon suggest......but going to have to set some weekly and monthly goals. Hope this helps.
