I just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. Bryan Nelson from San Antonio, Texas. I have decided to build a Pietenpol. This will be my first homebuilt. I have been building R/C airplanes for over 40 years. I have plans, and am putting together the wood, and metal raw materials, and doing lots of studying. It's too hot here in Summer to build. Once it cools off (October) I'll start in earnest. If anyone is in the area, and has some spare spruce, let me know. I'd love to avoid shipping from CA, or IL. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions to come.
