Here's a shot of "Harvey"
7 weeks full time to paint. 4 days alone to put on the making tape.
Striping is duplicated on bottom.
Contrary to how it looks, that is a 3 blade MT prop driven by a IO-360 180hp Superior Lycoming.
Finished April 2008. Flew 47 hours, then painted it.
76 hours to date flying.

Great! Looks like Russian Far East from the air
 
Steve do you have a picture of your panel? I also use Vans precut for super simple day VFR instrumentation. I am trying to position my steam gages in more logical order. Could you post your panel here on VAF or kindly email me N666BK@gmail.com

Vlad,

Since this pic was taken last summer, I replaced the panel mount compass with a Sirs mounted on the windshield brace. I moved the voltmeter to that hole. Then I added a manifold pressure gage to that spot above the throttle knob and left of the Garmin comm radio.
Bad move.
The MP gage picked up an RF signal and pegged out when I keyed the mic. After maybe 5 hours, it quit working altogether. Something to fix in the spring.
Recommendation: put the Hobb meter/oil pressure dummy light in the upper right hole, put the MP gage in the old Hobbs hole. Leave the voltmeter above the throttle knob.

BRAZILIAN RV9-A PU-VTM
 
I finished my RV9-A in last December, after 14 months of building. I aways wanted to build an airplane and since my first trip to Sun'n Fun, where I saw the RV line of aircrafts, I decided that I would build one of those. The year was 2000 and I take a ride in the blue factory demonstrator RV6A. But due to a divorce, a new marriage, a small kid, and a new business, I only ordered my kit in 2007. This is my first project. It runs a superior XPIO-320 and a wood propeller (from a domestic company). The panel is simple, with steam gauges, a radio, transponder and a Garmin 296. The first flight was on december, 15, 2008 and the plane performed very well. Now I've logged 20 hr on hobbs. So far so good! My next goal is to take my little bird to Sun'n Fun next year-2010. Thanks to everybody who answered the few questions I've posted in this forum. If any of you come to Brazil, don't hesitate to contact me!

Brasil is on my list to visit with my RV
