I inspected Lloyd Chaffin's QB -14 kit, serial 140212, yesterday and am now making arrangements for Tony Partain, who I spoke with earlier this week, to deliver the kit to me from the Lone Star State. Lloyd and his brother-in-law built the vertical stab (and did a very good job, from what I can see!) while getting out of the way of a fiberglassing expert working on the BIL's RV-7. Other than that, the kit is pretty much untouched. I love the way Lloyd has organized and labeled all of the small parts. I only wish that I could do the build in his BEAUTIFUL shop!
Lloyd, now you can place the G3X order for your -8A. Enjoy!
I can only hope and pray that the project goes as smooth as this deal has. Even worked out that a company flight got me to the Metroplex for a couple of days so Lloyd and I could seal the deal. Even worked out for one of our crews to skip the airlines for a trip home from Bombardier recurrent training on one of our Lear 45's.
