    Yes PW there are 3 primary kits, wing, fuse and finish. Most will buy all 3 at once. The engine and panel come in a timely fashion. Its all there except your paint, ELT and batteries. Keep following along for more information and thank you, Yankee 1

Ribs are in now and I will be doing cap strips today on the fuel tank bay ribs and then on to false spars. Feel free to stop in or give a call. Fly in breakfast is fast approaching so stay tuned for that. Also watch the other threads for ski flying. Lots to do here in March. Mark

    I am well on my way with the fuselage assembly and hope to complete that portion by month end. Stay tuned, it’s getting REAL now. Here is a recent video on the progress.

    Looking good Glenn
    We might be done about the same time. Vermont skies won’t be the same.
