Hi all. I am a little late with this post on VAF: We finished the Horizontal Stabilizer on 9 January 2018. I am growing increasingly pleased with the Van's RV-14A kit. Documentation is fantastic. Parts quality is impeccable. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly is outstanding -- everything fits nicely when we are done. Honestly, when people react as if building this airplane puts me in the class of a rocket scientist, I have to confess that the kit makes it so much easier than one would think by looking at the final product. I am proud to be the builder, but I know that much of the credit has to go to the Van's team. I am so grateful to be a part of the reality that started with a dream.
I have to wear reading glasses to take a decent selfie these days.
Horizontal Stabilizer sheet metal work is done.
With a ten-foot span, the h-stab looks like a genuine aircraft assembly! I love the sense of appreciation finishing this.
