It IS "much". Some people don't even get this far.

Default Time for a couple of pictures

I have had a couple private message about posting pictures of the build so far. Although I had another site they lost a lot of pictures and the links don't work well either.
so here are some pictures.
We hopefully are at the final stages. Were finished with the painting I can afford at this point and the airbrush will have to wait till spring or after the smoke installation.
first the engine installation. It is a Superior engine with fuel injection, gami injectors. The engine was built by Carlus Gann of Gann Aviation.


The second is a picture of the plane with the wings and ailerons finally installed for the last time. The rest will be assembled this week and hopefully will weigh it Wednesday.





Hopefully we'll have a bunch next week..... of it flying.
