Unfortunately in science, what you believe is irrelevant.

I'm fine with mechanical stuff, but wife says i'm lacking in the social department.

I seem to have missed the boat on who Bob is... This guy wasn't given a Cabinet Post was he?

Default Congrats Bob

Congratulations Bob. Glad to hear the sale of your 7A went well and that you are starting the 12. Hope to see it parked at OSH in the future.

Default Welcome to -12 land

Glad you have joined the light sport world. You will enjoy the build, but don't go too fast. It will probably seem like an erector set assembly compared to the -7. What's your kit number?

Welcome Bob. What made you decide on an RV? Have you ever flown in one? There's a pretty decent RV club up in the twin cities where you can get some friends.

Default Bob Collins... a repeat builder and has been on this forum for a long time. He built a beautiful RV-12, which, for some strange reason he sold. Now, just like "da Terminator," he's back!
