Gday Brett
I am back in the swing of things again since getting home, taking a while to get back into work but the plane has a different level of enthusiasm. Has your package arrived as yet? Let me know if you are around and available and we can arrange a time to catch up.

Brett. I will love to catch up. Plane is going great so far, really enjoying the build. If you are around over the weekend you are more than welcome to pop in for a chat and a look at how it is all going together. My number is 0408911049. I am going overseas from start of August till the end of September for holidays so better catch up before I go away! You will have yours finished before i get back!!! :) I will be very interested in your engine installation as I am planning Subaru conversion for mine when I get that far ... Was more thinking the EZ30D H6 but like the idea of 2.5 turbo engines too ... Decisions decisions ...

How did you get along with ordering the freight? If the boat is to be in on time mine should land in the next few days, expecting early next week.

Do you know what kind of cost it is to get yours out here yet?

Hope all the planning and organising is going well.

Talk soon

Gday again Brett,

Sounds fantastic. I am leaning towards the subi conversion too but thinking to go it on my own and use a PSRU out of NZ (Autoflight I think they are). Also had my eye on a prop from GT props, guy out of Adelaide sells them. Beautiful looking and electric IF adjustable.

Have you flown any of the Zenith aircraft in your time?

Gday Brett. 
I'm just over at Springfield Lakes. Will have to catch up when either kit arrives. How much completed is your kit? Will you get a complete kit thats partially completed or partial kit? I think mine will arrive in about 2 weeks so hoping for minimal delays through customs. Where is your kit coming from?
