Today all the sides of the rear fuselage were united along with the rear baggage closeout. All the predrilled holes lined up perfectly and fit with no waves or wrinkles. Time to drill out all the holes to final size before disassembly for deburring and priming. Jon is a clecoing madman, especially when all the holes line up.

Jon looks thinner with the picture stretched out like that. LOL! My wife is getting tired of hearing Jon's voice when I play the videos over and over.

I've been watching the 701 horizontal tail video. Although it's not a 750, it looks like the video is still valuable as a rough guideline of sorts, especially when it comes to technique. Now I just gotta get that electrician to call me back so i can get electricity to my shop.

It was nice to meet everybody last weekend. I ordered my fuselage kit Monday with a March 19 ship date.
I have finished my tail kit this week. Nothing like seeing the real thing to get inspired!

Gus and Jon: It's looking great - I can't wait to see the step-by-step DVD!
It was good to see you both in Sebring this past weekend.
