Not much longer now! Maybe about another ten minutes! That's what I tell people who ask!

This week I am starting on the tanks! My ProSeal is on order along with my flop tube!

Put together & take it apart. Here we have drilled the rear spar. At present, wingroot fairings & platenuts have been fitted. Wing tips have been adjusted
& Creative Air Nav lights & landing lights installed. Presently working on the instrument panel.
