6 years down the track and getting closer.
While searching VAF for info, as we all do during our build, I found my thread from when I started on this journey 6 years ago.
Little bit of progress update.
Tail is complete, wings are done
Fuselage is built, electrical fitout is almost complete. Canopy is done. It’s up on its gear.
Hung the engine a few weeks ago am finishing off the cowling. Long story with the cowl, but I got a 320 mount and cowl, and I am putting in an IO-360-B1B, with a GT 3 bladed ground adjustable prop.
So, busy doing the cut ‘n’ shut with the scoop to make it fit. Really starting to look like an aeroplane now.
Been really lucky, have met some great guys, clocking up some hours flying 7’s. Working towards getting this thing flying within the next year.
Running out of rivets to bang!
Flying friends RV7’s
Built RV7 empennage.
Fuselage mostly done.
Working FWF now.
