Its has been a while since the last post, but we have made good progress.
Sexy wingstips are done ,painted and mounted. Wing root fairings moulded an installed in place. We got the shock suspension tailwheel put together and mounted. Engine installation is finished with the prop and spinner mounted. The panel is basically done, with jut some minor interior decorations to do.
Next step is replace the "speed gear" with "Bush gear".
In the meantime our paperwork is sent in to CAA and as soon as we get the go ahead we will be flying. :D
