Well the decision has been made, I think its time to build a Pietenpol. The plan is to go with a welded steel fuselage and modified Corvair engine for power. Seen a lot of great examples out there and they seem to fly extremely well and have a long track record of success.

Plans have been ordered, benches cleared off, probably going to start with the ribs this winter. I have a great many other things to do which require my time and money but I figure if I get a process going in the evenings of cutting spruce, soaking spars, and gluing parts in jigs, I might have a stack of ribs by next spring. :cool:

Oh man, its been awhile. Life has a way of really throwin a wrench in things. This project is still on course but I've been pulled away for a bit. Hopefully in the next few months I'll have some progress to share. In the mean while, I've been doing more CAD work and pouring over the plans. I'm starting to realize nothing about this project is gonna be quick. :D
