Outstanding work. Where are you based (airfiled) ? and what about the test flights?
I have my Rv8 at EDML Landshut and will be nice to escort you.

Beautiful airplane - excellent work!

Interesting throttle grip - where did you get that?

Also, did you bend the stick to accommodate the (Infinity?) grip?

Thanks for all the nice words.

Yes the kit is #83472, took me 1.5 years - not much activity besides building.
Javier, I´m in EDMG, not too far from Landshut, may be 40 RV minutes.
The throttle grip is a modified Hurst Shifter, got it from SummitRacing black anodized with momentary push button.

That is a great looking airplane. Wonderful job on the paint scheme, very appealing. I'm planning the paint for my RV-8 now and your airplane is a good inspiration.
