Right on target. 3.5+ years for me start to finish, and this was my second plane. The first one took four years.

Take a deep breath and relax. There are a few really fast builders out there but you are in no way a really slow builder. At your pace I bet you beat my time, maybe by a lot.

You do have plenty of work ahead but if you keep on your current pace it will get finished and you will stand back in awe when it is done.


Remember, it is never really finished. Last Thanksgiving I had over 100 hours on mine and I TOOK IT APART! It was time to paint. Seven hard weeks of work later I put it back together and flew it again last week.

* Just looked up on my log. 16 months, start to finish on my slow build wings with several months off for non building.
