Looking Nice!! Are you doing your own welding? That's impressive, skilled at woodworking and metal working.

some new progress........

the wooden pattern on the front is for the firewall which will be titanium. the steel X is for my welding rack. you mount the plane on it and you can spin it around to reach anywhere on the frame to weld to........

anyways, its starting to resemble an airplane more now :D

Nice job Chris! It must be exciting to sit in the cockpit and imagine the clouds will eventually be below you.

Very nice work Chris! It's really coming along great!

Hey once you have it completed, are there any regulations or inspections that need to be done before you are 'allowed' to fly it? The basic design had to be FAA approved already, is that correct?
