This is just a piece of the entire video that I would like to make of my experience building an 801. And yes- I do work that fast.

This was the first wing that I built and it took me twice as long as it did for me to make the second one. I spent about sixty hours on this one, that includes prepping and painting all parts witch is of coarse not included in the video.

Fantabulous - what was the actual number of hours you worked on that wing, start to finish?

Nicely done! Thanks for sharing.

Since I am in the process of trying to scratch build two Zenith aircraft, I trying to figure out how the h*** I can work as fast as Ethan, so I can get everything done. :o)
