Talking Major Milestone

After nearly 12 years (yes I am somewhat ashamed of that number!) Mr. Mel Asberry came over and made N627RS a real airplane

Default Congratulations!

Congratulations and don't be ashamed about how long it took. If building an airplane was easy, there would be old women and young children doing it. Have fun learning about your new creation.

Congrats!! That really exciting! Oh and 12 years is nothing to be ashamed of at all- My 6 project has been in the family for 23 years and counting.

Congratulations! It doesn't matter how long it takes; the important thing is that it's now an airplane!
