I swear, if anyone posts another GD thought about making money I think I'm gonna snap. Please stop. I don't know how to be more clear about this. Second. I'm not asking for opinions on life choices. With all due respect to everyone, please stop reading in to this and making assumptions. In my life aviation is a tiny fraction of what I do with my time. Let's put this in perspective ok? If you have scratch built an airplane from plans start to finish please, and flown it, please post what you built and a photo of it. I'm quite certain this will be a short list? I have received messages and now it's bleeding in to the posts. I'm extremely confused, it seems the people who keep bringing up the fact that I have had multiple projects have not only never built one from scratch but haven't even attempted to start one. Understand, I have no regrets. I had a blast building fuselages, wings, parts etc. I mean, most people sit home and watch Walking Dead or NCIS. I'm having fun, except for a few stressful moments in life overall it's been awesome. I have over 100 YouTube videos explaining step by step in exact detail how to build airplane parts. Tens of thousands of views. Emails and messages thanking me for taking the time to do this. I've contributed heavily to aviation. My videos on the legal eagle ultralight have gotten people off the couch and building. Do you have any idea how great that makes me feel that I'm part of that? This is a tube and fabric thread. This is a thread I set aside so I can build a lower wing of a Biplane. I plan on filming it. Why? Because that's how I contribute to aviation. I'm fine with that, I'm more than fine with that. It works for me, I enjoy it. Please stop posting in this thread about off topic subjects, send me a PM if you'd like. I need this thread to.be about a wing. It's very important. Do I need to explain why? I plan on covering subjects like wing rib jigs, nails, glue, spars, finish, drilling, reaming, punching, layout, threading, the list goes on. Don't you understand? I'm contributing to aviation. I realize there's great people who care on here, I really do. Thank you, I appreciate it very much. Starting a airplane and finishing not and flying it is a monumental undertaking. That's why so few engage in it. Kevin. I'm not mad at your post but your assumptions are completely wrong. 90%of my life in my family and the business I own and operate. This whole airplane "thing" is how I blow off steam. It's "me" time. It's fun time in the shop with my kids. It's a chance fore to contribute to aviation. Don't assume too much from your limited reading, that's not even 1% of reality. I have multiple threads on here showing absolute close up photos and videos of my work, something EXTREMELY rare on here. I feel I've contributed greatly to this forum and the only way I'm able to contribute is to build build build. What I contribute and post I almost always show a photo or answer in detail as it concerns building. Your post is not something that should be on this thread, I know you mean well but it doesn't belong. This thread is a Tube & Fabric thread I'm trying to build a wing, hopefully someone somewhere will get value from it.
