Default RV Training Project by Flugplatzkind

Hello everybody,

my name is Markus and I started my training project a few days ago. A good friend of mine who is currently building his RV-7 suggested me to build the Training project. He said look at how good your skills are. I would like to share with you my progress and show you what I do. If you have any questions or suggestions write it in the comments.

My Training Project has arrived. So let the fun begin.

First I cut off and edited the stiffeners

After the stiffeners were finished I deburred the top and bottom skin. Finally I installed my first clecos
RV Training Project - started

I enjoyed those projects. I built the tool box too. You learn a lot about the precess and about yourself. I learned I had to slow down, read the instructions until I was SURE I knew what we were doing and measure, check that, re measure and then cut.
You will enjoy the build.
Welcome aboard.
Fly safe,
