Default Kits under construction ONLY

Hey All,

In another thread I got to wondering...

How many active participants here are still building (not flying) and what type of kits are being worked on?

What are you working on?

I am still cranking away on my -7!

RV-7, tail done, lots of wing pieces in the garage and struggling with the fuel tanks now. After seeing all the beautiful RVs at OSH, wishing we could snap our fingers and have an airworthy plane today! But building is half the fun, right?

According to the FAA, building is 51% of the fun.. (sigh)
