Great work Joe, It's great to see your project come to life! At this rate it will transition from project to being an aircraft sooner than you know ;)

 

Cheers,

 

Bruce.

Thanks for the encouragement and it is a long way to go. I took more pics outside but winter is here so I don't think I can do much more painting. The blue is more toward the teal side.

The project is really comming along. Your place looks very similar to mine. I have a corn field on my west side too. I also have a John Deere Lawn mower.

Did you build the plane in that garage in the picture? You keep it up and you could be flying by spring. STeve build on

Thanks again. Steve yes I built the plane in the garage but had to stop as we removed the roof and put an addition on the house. That set me back one year. Next door neighbor owns the cornfiels and is a John Deere dealer. In the last pic you can see the taxiway to runway 7 at LPR. Now if I can get them to put a gate in the fence.

That has got to be pretty darn cool to live that close to the airport and not have to put up with rich snotty neighbors who tell you what you can do on your own place. I bet the pheasant hunting is great in your neck of the woods. STeve build on

I got lucky in that department. My neighbor two doors down (who is also in my EAA chapter and is building a CX4) does this for a living out of his home based business. All I have to do is dream up a design.

Waiter,

 

If you are going to be at Norwalk on Saturday I will stop in. I would love to see your bird. Sunday there is a pancake breakfast at SKY Sandusky if you want to burn some more holes in the sky. I think I am done for the most part with painting but I will still need N numbers and such Thanks

I wasn't aware of the SKY one. The only problem I have with SKY is the need to back taxi. When it gets busy, the people in the pattern won't extend their downwinds and allow planes to backtaxi and take off.

 

ANyway, I may show up there on Sunday.

 

 

TMann, Can he do multiple color? The guy I have can only cut single color (letters, logos, emblams, etc), but he can't color print on Vinyl.

 

I got all my labels and 6 "Stars/Bars" for $65.

Waiter,

 

I know what you mean. I had to wait and be very careful when i flew my daughter in years ago in a Tramahawk. I drive there now as it becomes apparent build or fly but not both.

Here's his site and contact information. He runs the QuickieBuilders.org site as well so he has some composite background. He's gone over to the dark side and is currently building a spam-can.
