Default Officially a repeat RV builder...

I just took possession of kit number 1184, a completely untouched 4 tail!



I'm excited about this on as it represents a great spot between today's pre punched kits and a plans built airplane.

Let the winter project fun begin!! Good to be back...

WTG Chad! This one should go faster and hopefully cost less in replaced parts.

Good news Chad... Make it a Fast Back. I have the paper templates in my office. Oh, and no need to count rivets... right?

If it's Vansbrau, it will be an empty bottle you have to fill yourself.
