VBGreat looking aircraft!
The photos of people sitting in it at SnF show some sort of a seam or join line. looks like a raised ridge, on the side of the fuselage. I'm hoping that raised ridge is not going to be there permanently???
I'm glad that you are getting good press coverage on this project, congratulations. As with any public relations effort, just don't put all of your eggs in one basket, especially the basket mentioned in post 110 above. There's some history with one of the folks involved (that you may not know about, but should become familiar with if you're going to be in the kitplane industry).
We're frequently asked by the moderators to avoid discussing those details on this forum, for good reason, and I'll leave it at that.
Changed terminology in post above to " Fool Proof" . I would never want someone as nice as you , Byron, to think I opened up the opportunity to possibly allow one to categorize themselves as an I**ot. Not that I am now suggesting you may be a fool, mind you. Having been a "Pro" builder, many cases completing already started projects, in a past life, I can say some of my customers were definitely foolish to think they were up to the task of building an airplane or maybe even a USPS parcel box for that matter.You underestimate me ...
