Have you been working on your project? My last message to you was 2015, I hope you are still intrested in completing your plane. Send a message to inform me of your statis, I would like to encourage you if you have stalled.
Rebecca, a long time ago you congradulated me on finishing my 601 xlb, i was looking through my plane page and started wondering if you have completed your project or are close yet? send me a message sometime to inform me on your situation. thank you and happy riveting. Garlen.
Good news,sure you looking forward to getting back into the building program soon.
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
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
I was born in Rochester, lived there till I was 10.
You show great determination. Hope Santa brings you that heated work space!
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 time.....in 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.
