Iím budgetting on 12 months elapsed build time, part-time admittedly, but I did build it originally so have all the tools, plans etc.
I was wondering about that too. Getting that U channel out seems like a very big job based on putting it together. I wondered if rebuilding a fuselage would not be close to equal work. The firewall part would be small compared to the U channel.
