Hi Bob, and welcome to VAF!

Please keep us informed on your new build, You will find the RV community to be a great group of builders. There have been instances where RV builders have been profiled on public radio and various blogs. Some builders have even decided to build an RV after selling their original plane. Who knows, you may fall into that group one day.

Enjoy the journey!

Why didn't you use Bob Collins for a user name, oops looks like it's already taken.

Congrats on the new project! I hope you make some entertaining videos for all the RV12 guys.
