Ordered the finishing kit for my 701. They said it won't ship until late September. Building an airplane requires a lot of inspiration and motivation maintenance as it is. We've all heard of the high percentage of projects that take more than a decade or never get completed. I am dedicated and determined to my project in spite of the odds. I would like to drop a line in the old suggestion box if I could. Zenith please be more informative with your orders with regards to pricing and shipping. Put some pictures with your online parts catalog. And I would be eternally grateful if you'd publish some pricing on the avionics packages. I know that not every airplane is the same but I have found that with some of this stuff your prices are quite competitive and worth sharing.
Aside from all that the build has been going great. I am as far as I can get without parts so the wait is killing me. I been studying as much as I can for the license in my downtime. When I'm not building or studying I browse though all the old blogs and posts on here living though the words of those that have gone before me. Thanks for all the pictures and experiences.

I agree, the old parts catalog was a much better resource than the new “updated” site. Especially for those of us with older kits.
