Nice! It's always great to finish a piece and hoist it aloft.

Default Completed HS

Nice job Ian!
I finished mine a couple of weeks ago. It is a good feeling when you finish a part and you are one step closer to finishing.
You should fly through the VS. I did that first, so am now onto the rudder.
Cheers,
Joe

Default Better progress

Well, after taking nearly a year to build the horizontal stabiliser, I’ve managed to increase the pace a bit. Vertical stabiliser took 18 days and 24 build hours. Now, if I can keep this up I might finish this aircraft in a respectable amount of time.

Default Big Day

Bit of a milestone day recently with the arrival of my QB wings and fuselage - just two weeks short of a year since I ordered and paid my deposit. Many thanks to the Van's folks and also especially Phil and Indy and the team at Aussie Car Imports who looked after all the shipping arrangements. Everything went very smoothly and was completely hassle free. I got the word on the Friday at 1130am that my shipment had cleared customs and quarantine in Sydney. At 0630 the next morning after a three and a half hour drive from Canberra I was at the shipping agent loading my crates on my trailer. I must admit to being a little anxious on the long drive home, imagining every thing that could possibly go wrong. All went well though and I was very happy to have this load in my driveway.


I had to wait a day to unload though while I organised a few friends to help unload. Pretty happy to get the lid off and check out the goodies.

And of course the obligatory 'hop inside and make aeroplane noises'!!

After getting rid of all the crating material I made up a temporary stand so I could move the fuselage easily around the workshop. I know it looks dodgy but it is surprisingly stable.

On with the build!
