Default Very nice!

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help with the project. (I'm not rich but Tony was a really good guy and I'd like to see his project take flight). I was never lucky enough to call him a close friend but did email him some.
Best,
Brian

Sure Tim will do. It's been too cold in the shop for a couple weeks. I was looking for parts and studying the plans. Managed to assemble the wheels.

Talking

Vlad,

I know this weather has killed a lot of things and not just building plans but the roads and everything else. Anyway, the snow is starting to melt and hopefully nicer weather in the near future will allow for the project to make some progress. I thought for sure I was going to see a lot more done but didn't think about the garage temps being subzero. I hope your plans are in order again after moving everything to the new location and the game plan is ready to go into full speed.

As Tony would say and busting our stones, "What's the hold up? Are you guys rookies? I would've had this done already. HAHAHA

He has been making a presence on me lately. Hope to hear from you soon Vlad!

Everything is going according to the plan Tim. Some parts are ordered and we are in no rush. There is no good access to the shop still a lot of snow and other wave of storms is coming. I will keep you advised.

Thanks for interest Robert. The progress has been slowed. Between full time job and my own RV to fly the work on TK is mostly done after dark or on very early mornings. Plus due to farm expansion project the access to the barn shop is sometimes restricted. An automotive repair style lift is being erected close to the plane. So I am looking for another shop to move the project.


As of now the control pushrods are fabricated and sticks prefitted.






Wheel assemblies are ready.







The empennage is in the rigging process.







Roll bar is expanded and fits thanks Bruce for the jack.








A very nice transparent reservoirs were manufactured and tested by Noel Simmons of Blueskyaviation.net I haven't installed them yet still working on rudder pedals.







And the most important thing is Amy took advantage of Vans promotion and bought stock engine and prop combo. The priciest items so far are here.
