The poll says it allows for multiple entries. Not if you are building on two of the same type, or I couldn't figure out how to do that. We have several 12s underway.

John, Right!

All I can say is WOW! I am very pleased that this thread has seen so much enthusiasm!

I was getting worried that building airplanes was a dying art. Not so, I guess!?!

So glad!

RV 10. Tail and wings 95% done, fuselage skins going on now. Another 5-6 years and I might be 90% done.

Tail and wings done. Fuse 90% done , slider finish kit about 75% done and my project is still is a BLAST to work on. I know I will be a repeat offender, I can see a 10 in the horizon with a nice little turbo prop.

Hey John. Catching up to you. Better not beat you.
By the way your home built DRDT dimpler works like a
charm.

Building since Feb 2011. Emp done less fiberglass, Fuse and finish kit
90%, tip up done, cowling fit needs painting, panel 90% waiting on GRT EFIS and auto pilot. Just got my cylinders rebuilt and engine parts yellow tagged and will start the engine rebuild next week, just started the wings.

Finish date? Seems like building these things you may think your 80% done
But you may still be 80% to go!

Come by the shop some time!

Albit, we do what we can! Don't slow down on my account. Press on! Use the dimpler in good health! I won't need it back until my cowling is done. Perhaps some time this winter?

See you soon!!!

Emp kit done except for tips. Wings started -- prepping ribs. Haven't decided yet if it will be a 7 or 7A.
