I think I have gone over the plans several times already, you know dreaming about it setting on the work bench then taking that first flight. If you make it to the factory on the 9th. It would be nice to meet you and your son if you guys make it up.

The problem I have right now is I want to put one of everything in the plane, we all know that that will not work. I'd have a plane over the 1320 weight Limey with no fuel.. Lol

Hello I just received my plans and will be attending the factory workshop March 8 & 9. I can't wait. I have a 1973 Cessna 172M, and thought I'd try my hand at building a kit. I just love the zodiac 650B. Talking about a very sweet looking bird.
Did you find it easy to start building? Any pointers.. I'm going to start the build at home then to hanger when I out grow the garage

Rebecca!!  I  Really have to say :  ...nothing seems to stop you from building your plane!!

and having your kids involved in your project is great to see. It's the best way to combine quality family time  and building perfect harmony. I have a 30' x 30' workshop and I can just imagine the challenge you are faced with in building an aircraft in your dinning room -:) 

Have fun building!  We builders are all virtually supporting you and watching with great interest you progress.

Looks like you are really getting into the building process, and you have some good help. My 601xl is based at Winsted, Mn. just west of the twin cities if you ever get the urge to look at a similar plane. Best wishes on your project.

"making airplane noises", "feeling maybe I can do this", "cleaning the garage", sounds like your ready. Go for it. Lots of folks here with lots of helpful and well meaning advice. Good Luck!!!

Hi Rebecca!!

You sure can do it... and as for your garage !!  Don't feel bad, mine has to be cleaned out on a regular basis -:)

Hi Rebecca

Great to see a girl joining the Zodiac group. I can tell by how many forum posts that you have made that you will be adding regular updates for your project. I look forward to reading and seeing your progress. Good luck with your build and keep making those airplane noises. I know I do.
