Well done, that's excellent news.
Tom was a dear friend of mine and and he told me how glad he was his project went into (your) good hands.
Thanks for seeing it through and for sharing, made my day.

I'm surprised I'd forgotten to share a photo on this thread in 2022 after Falsi-Fighter became airworthy, but here's one of the best I have so far. It doesn't look like this right now; the wheel fairings are off for winter, being repaired and redesigned after the first-round damage that seems to be a common occurrence with wheel fairings. 84.6 hrs. as of last Monday. Still work to do, but she seems to like to fly.
