Default RV-10 Ruger

Hello to all!

First off I wanted to say thank you for the wealth of knowledge and information available on this forum. It has truly been a guiding factor in taking the RV plunge and a source of calm every time I come across an issue or problem during the build, and I am sure it will continue to be.

Figured it was time to come out of hiding and say hello. Ruger (my dog) and I are building an RV-10 (yeah, he's not very helpful). After 4 weeks of building, I am making slow but steady progress.

I'm also cataloguing the build with time lapse video for future builders that come across the site (, and it is available for any to see.

Cheers to all!, -M

Default Welcome

Welcome Ruger, Looking good so far. I have many fond memories of that area. '90-'93 with the World's leading MiG Killers, and '03-'05 with Red Section that ended with a really neat shadow box.

Looking great!

About half the comments I get about my timelapse vids are people saying how cute the dog is, but like Ruger, Sawyer isn't very helpful either!

Keep up with the videos!
