    Re: My First Scratch build

    Thanks guys!

    Just a little recap.. The fuse half's have already been pulled for the prototype. The wings are complete. Canopy and hatch is done. I will hold off on the speed brake for the time being.
    Skins for the stabs are next and soon to be laid up.

    Things to do...
    Pull parts from engine pod.. Figure out formers for engine pod. most of the fuse formers are done but need to be cut.

    Yes 3 years is a long time.. but given the hours I work, I'm surprised I didn't pack it all in over a year ago, as so many others do. My hours at work have been cut back from 14 hours a day and Saturdays.. to just 12 hours a day and 8 on saturday. A retired person could do this easily in just one year, but I'm not that person. This is my hobby.. If its not fun for me.. I won't do it anymore. I will produce kits for those interested.. but deadlines are only something that apply to my full time job.

    Thanks to everyone for your support and patients. Things should move much quicker now, but i'm not making any promises

    I will be doing a full on build, here on RCCanucks,RCG and on RCU so as to use as an assembly guide.

    I hope to have the prototype maidened before the snow is gone.
