Mated the fuselage halves and had a visit from my EAA tech counselor to check things out. He said everything looked good and I was ok to start covering things up with the baggage floor installation.

Thanks Nedim, It's still a lot of fun building this RV and I'm sure will be even more fun to fly!

Default Section 6 Complete

Just getting started. 56 hours and 6 weeks after receiving my kit, the vertical stabilizer is finally complete. On to the rudder!

Finished the horizontal stabilizer. Started my project mid-September, about 110 hours time in project so far (VS and rudder previously completed) On to the elevators. Some photos include a few "artsy" ones....

I received my RV-14A QB fuselage & wings on 23 July using P&M Express via Partain. I checked the big parts over upon delivery and found them to be damage free and a high quality build. Mike, the delivery driver was professional and a pleasure to meet along with his dog Bear who loves to steal gloves and play with them. It took Mike and I a little over an hour to unload the parts with no difficulty for the two of us. It was very evident to me that Mike loaded and secured everything meticulously.

Work and travel prevented me from completing the inventory until a few days later and every single part & piece of hardware was accounted for. As others have commented before, Van's does an amazing job packing items for shipment.

I ordered the QB parts on 23 Dec so it was exactly 7 months from the day I placed the order to when they arrived at my hangar. Of note, I got the email that it was in stock at Van's on 7 July. It took Van's a few days to QA the parts and release them for shipping. With the empennage and tailcone completed in late March, I'm now able to dive back into building again!
