Latest blogspot entry is up; see link in signature below. Four months distilled down to a surprisingly manageable length, considering the continuing chaos consuming my life. Here's the obligatory teaser photo:

Latest Blogspot entry is up; see link in signature below. Not very long; LOTS of photos. Making this entry was a good way to be productive while waiting for the weather window in MI to dehumidify so I can start painting. Here's the obligatory teaser photo:

Looking good Martin! Your schedule is almost identical what mine was back in 2016. Move to the airport right before Oshkosh, Bruce Bohannan training in October and first flight in November. You can do it!

Two thumbs up Marty!
Beautiful workmanship on this bird. Rumor has it that Marty has offered the local DAR $10,000 if he can find anything wrong when the time comes for inspection. Stay tuned. This could get interesting.

Martin, that last photo of the fuselage from the rear looked at first glance like the front end of a wicked fighter jet sans nose cone/pitot. I had to look twice!

Terry, Terry, Terry.... I'm sitting here, wondering if Ted talked you into writing that ($10K is one of his favorite numbers, I think) or whether you're just being your usual troublemaking self...

Congrats on the move, Martin! That's a big deal! Loving the paint scheme and look of your plane.
