I like how you are approaching the construction of the Kit. I will follow you very closely... I hope to learn a lot.
 
In Vegas again well that's interesting! Yes Bill still building for peopls and getting to some of my boats too. Feeling a bit better after the new heart valve. Zipp kits are a great easy building kit at a good price!

Brad,
You going to sweet talk the wife into coming down to see us again. That would be awesome.

Had a major set back with the build with my wife and i getting a nasty case of Covid for over a week and we are better but still not 100%! So the center section (fuselage) is built and so are the sponsions and i glued them all together with slow set epoxy! I also added the sponsion tips, front nosepiece, and glued the radio box lid onto the top of the box and sealed it! This kit is a joy to build and very straight forward! Just follow the instructions!

Hey Bill nice build , now for some paint. Hope you and your wife are felling better. You don't sand all that char offbefore you put it together?
I just se some #120 and clean it off that way you don't leave finger prints all over, at least in my case. Take care and hope to see you in Vegas.
