Nick, now in college and working, stopped back to help out.
On October 28th inventory started.
Old Nick and new Nick.
On December 9th and 10th, 2018 we did the final fitting of the wings to the fuselage. Also continued with some minor engine work. Group 2 has finished up Tail # 2, so they started preparing fiberglass for the canopy area.
A little helper snuck in!
The resist to open the box could not be overcome, but the actual inventory will be completed later.
We safely drove in formation using the call signs "Dump One" and Dump Two".
On October 26, 2018 our engine arrived!
On April 2nd, 2018 our "finish kit" arrived. The box had been delivered to Mr. North's business and, as seen below, Mr. North backs his truck up to the hangar with our latest box of parts.
We realized that much of our floor space was being occupied by empty crates from Van's Aircraft so on an off day Misters Jordan, Muhs and Brasch made a road trip to the dump!
While Jorge started working on tubing for the fuel system and Brian continued the finish work on the canopy, most of the activity was at the front of the airplane with the engine being hung.
Inventory started 4/9/18!
Fun with glass cloth.
