  1. Finished and hung canard, more nose jobs, built a more level work table, finished main spar, working on a wing. I figure the wings will carry me through December. Really wish I could edit and update the original post Workshop - https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZeSadwPXxhp5fqH82 Ch 13 Nose - https://photos.app.goo.gl/WztpLQceG5D2hcmv6 Ch 14 Main Spar - https://photos.app.goo.gl/w6SxSRVufFpoP1X8A Ch 19 Wings - https://photos.app.goo.gl/fCTHXWsMsK5KeJqo7
  2. Canard installed, elevators trimmed to fit https://photos.app.goo.gl/QK1WtHPCmZfvmoFL7
  3. Chapter 11 in the books. Moving onto Chapter 12 canard install. I was going to edit my original post and keep it updated with my album links but I can't figure out how to edit posts. https://photos.app.goo.gl/SpKnPnc36w2FGEfJ6
  4. This part moves, it's probably important https://photos.app.goo.gl/bRY3fr4kCIdq0O4h1
  5. Les, We're going to Oshkosh for the first time this year. Very excited it's a lifelong bucket list thing for me. We're flying in however. Would love to hear more about the lancair canopy, have any photos?
  6. Finished up chapter 10 http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/UfMzgUu6YENQqIEOeG8FuQ_embnceL2nbuq1LgVXRCgEVrxCzzxp6ZOPIIBPxsSlpbHt7E3jH1rdEim-5qbdKi0RctMZJXDgfh9BYAdxoFXvLRWC8mydvUaQVt46NaOw8GE6VSaHKh20ATAkWRbJ0x57m0h6TciUIkHXR1KBvkrNhgfaSNz5A3yNY2uW3jF0nRVaGhs1J4D6DsWIplUphYtJAMMpuO-O8MwP_zWM22LbG3DIya8r85o2gbsyl-XKo4Ge6y7EX5n8ARwTFLL2ADHA_6Ki1pnMhfaxsAvjlWEb69aBlvF6ZEXckPtDZYjgAhb1RPrjj9qBoYi3ZkzYuck7Buxc4ZAkUmzhL6Ln2pMDANQoA-kMaYgb8UHlYH5VZLxpGu9MuwArQeTn4BO7aMMmoCAUTAvWmgwqR9HS7Ttv7Rt2c15jpz-i8NuBYkXzMmZ-JQBw6ALWooRtq1T9xq8dx6fLiLzdQOVGwcIZhH1mW-4DCOv9XMID8NSASWPgKCzmqkGGf9NmiNeDbJjHDF9BhkYA-IEgeHjdHNiMtdy5JiqDO5ZZHQ9nJK6msilNmHFLA5EJLyetEgm4MEhuRTDM1h2ooD-emERkJRX8=w1312-h984-no?.jpg
  7. Thanks compliments guys. I've come to realize that logistics is my least favorite activity on this project. Everything goes great until something gets backordered. The past few months have been: * Start the canard, but run out of spar cap tape, now the canard takes up my workshop table while I wait * Spar cap tape is backordered everywhere in the world, ok * Move onto elevator chapter, finish elevator * Move onto nose chapter, okay still waiting on nose lift parts * Can't buy the Oelmann pedals any more, so I have to figure out how to make those, deal with that for a while * Now I'm stuck, can't move forward with canard, elevator, canard install, nose, or even main spar * Start gathering parts for control system * Jack comes through with nose lift and sells me some spare spar cap tape he has from the 90s * Now I'm finishing off the canard finally! * Oh and by the way, ACS still has my spar cap tape on BO, along with about a dozen other parts 2-3mo later. * The point is really driven home when I see how easy my RV buddy has it with parts logistics Hopefully now things are unstuck for a while. I'm hoping have the canard & elevator done and installed and the nose lift installed and working before Oshkosh.
  8. Hi Les, It looks like we started roughly the same time last year. I'm super jealous that you already have the mainspar and turtleback on!
  9. Kent, Great suggestion. I had a hell of a time trying to fabricate the plans sliding clevis and eventually just put it on the backburner for now. Your way seems easier. I also like the way Wayne Hicks did his as well, Two u channels welded back to back.
  10.
