Today is the second anniversary of picking up a drill and making my first hole in the rudder. I now have 167 hours invested into the project which is interesting because I did 80 in the first year too. I am going to need to pick up the pace if this thing is going to be finished while fossil fuels are still available!
I really thought I'd be well into the fuselage by now but the list of completed parts stands at:
And the right wing is about 50% done, I'd say. Needs the fuel tank installed and the wing tip lights assembled before I can seal it up.
The current plan is to get on a waiting list for the hangar at the airport in a month or so. I am told it could be anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months to get a space. The ideal timing would be to get in and order the fuselage kit just in time for it to arrive when the weather starts to cool down. Last I looked there were 11 people on the list but I am told that most, if not all, of them will decline the invitation when it comes.
There are definitely a lot of highs and lows on this project but generally I am really enjoying the build process and am missing it while I sit out these horrible hot days.
My goal for the next year?? I really would love to see this project sitting on its wheels.....
