Problem with that is you need to send in a picture of your "completed" plane with the registration. I sent mine in as soon as I had the wings on. I had it ready to fly in about 3-4 weeks after that, my registration took 6 weeks beyond that. Talk about a painful wait.

Actually that is not correct. The registration can be done anytime and doesn't require a picture or the airplane completed. The INITIAL APPLICATION FOR
A SPECIAL CERTIFICATE OF AIRWORTHINESS FOR AMATEUR-BUILT AIRCRAFT
does requires the picture and cannot be submitted until the final inspection is completed.

I just went through the process and had great service from the MDRA.

Well that had me going over why I submitted a picture. The answer is we're both right. 3 years ago I sent my request for final inspection to MD-RA as was (and still is) required before applying for the C of R. The FINAL INSPECTION NOTICE that I got in response included the document C16E PROCEDURE TO OBTAIN A CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION PRIOR TO FINAL/IMPORT INSPECTION. This document included the following requirement.
Quote:
3/4 side view photo of the completed aircraft showing registration marks affixed.
Here's the rub, that document I got was the 20151005 version. The current version of that document is 20200923 and it no longer includes this requirement.

So you are correct, this is no longer a requirement. It was for me and I'm glad to see that it was removed.

Thanks for the clarification. I found my recent registration process and the application for Special Certificate of Airworthiness to be pretty straight forward and well explained within the MDRA documents.
