Default RV-7 N6113 Mark Antry (mantry) KBTF

Well, I guess Christmas day would be the perfect time to show off what Santa brought me this year. Ok, I took delivery on Dec 18th but it is still one heck of a Christmas present from one heck of a wife!




The details:
N6113 RV-7
Built by list member John Siebold (RV7ator)
First flight I believe was in 2002
It was sold to a Gentleman in SLC in 2004 and I purchased it from him Dec 18, 2014.
I believe it was a quick build kit. John has done EXCELLENT WORK. I have had numerous people, EAA Chapter Tech Counselors, A/P's, Fellow RV7 Builders, look it over both prior to and after me purchasing it and all have said "IT IS A GOOD ONE!!!" Thank you JOHN!!!!!
Engine: Aero Sport Power O-360
Prop: Hartzel Blended Airfoil Constant Speed
Panel:
Dynon D10A
Navaid AP-1 (even still works)
Apollo SL30
Garmin GPSMAP 196
EI UBG-16 Engine Monitor
Garmin GTX320 Transponder
PS Eng PCD7100 Audio panel/CD Player

Hangered at KBTF (Bountiful SkyPark, Bountiful, UT)

I've only got about 3 hours in the plane but I sure am enjoying it!!! Can't wait to explore and learn so much more about her!

Thanks in advance to all the VAF members for helping me with questions, etc.

Update: John reminds me it was actually a SLOW BUILT. Excellent workmanship. This was his first, I can only imagine what his models 2-5 are like! Great to have such a great resource in chatting with John, the builder.
