Default RV-12 empennage complete

I had first posted in September last year about me contemplating building an RV-12iS. I was also considering buying a built one or buying an old taildragger.

Original post:

I wanted to follow-up and let you know that I decided to build and am LOVING it. I had a great time building so far, and was on track to complete the empennage kit in March. New baby came then, so my progress slowed for a while. Having 2 small kids makes building hard, but I've been able to make time for it.

This forum has been so helpful to see how others conquered various steps during the build and it's something I consult regularly.

I was a bit late ordering the wing kit, especially with all the COVID delays. It's supposed to crate the week of July 5th, but I am not expecting that timing based on seeing others' kits delayed past the quoted crate date.

You can see my full build log here, Here are some of the highlights:

p.s. I couldn't figure out how to upload the pictures so they're rotated to the right orientation. Any ideas?

Default RV-12iS kid built

The current RV-12iS kit that I am finishing as an EAB had every rivet pulled by my 5 year old, now 7. You should get that little one involved with the build.
