Default 7 Quickbuild

Hello all, first post on here. I am a long time pilot that just got religion and bought a RV-7 quickbuild kit that is started. The empennage and tail feathers are completed with excellent workmanship otherwise it is unmolested. Fuselage is full of unopened boxes. It did not come with the finishing kit and is a slider model. Just wanted to say hi and after flying A -7 2 hrs a month ago I'm am excited to get started.

good luck with the build. Fun times ahead.

Been a few years since I completed my Quickbuild -7, but I'm only 231nm directly west if you have any questions.

Welcome aboard! I did almost the same thing in Dec 2014 when I picked up a -7A in QB state. After 2 years of weekend building, it is nearly finished.
