I am building a VANS RV-4 aircraft. If your not involved in homebuilt aircraft it wont be too interesting, but if you are a part of that elite group it just might be. My intention is to include ONLY the interesting details, so the rate of change will be quite slow!

Fitting the Canopy Frame

I de-installed the wings yesterday. They wont be refitted until after painting. The next major step is the canopy. Getting the frame to fit the canopy looks like quite a bit of work. After half a day with it I am quite baffled. You can see more pictures on the Finish Kit section of the blog.

Christmas comes again!

My c/s prop arrived today from MT. It was hard to resist ripping all of the wrapping off, and giving it a good stroke. But I think it is better off left in its box though, so that is where it will stay until needed.

I have achieved a lot recently. The fuel bay is largely complete and its cover installed. For a better view under the cover click here .

I have now started on the rear seat .
