Hello,
Little introduction, not really sure if this is the correct thread. New RV7 started - on the hangar floor:

Ready to be unpacked and counted:



I did get some of the parts counted and organized



Been looking to build for several years but 'life' sometimes gets in the way. Working on -7; Lurked here a bunch, read a ton and hope I can share this journey.

Default Welcoome!

Welcome to the RV-7 fold, Jack! If you just want to post the occasional build status, this is as good a place as any. If you want to start a separate thread to document your build, you can start one at My RV Build Project. If you're building at the airport listed in your signature, you've got local access to some of the best RV building talent there is.

Looks great, Guilherme! I just painted my interior too. Masking is really the hardest part (at least the most tedious).

Default Lucy has wings

Finally. Lucy has wings. I had so many life interruptions. It feels so good to see these done. Sorry I couldn't get the image rotated correctly.
