Fuselage on my aircraft build is just about done. Wings need paint now so maybe first flight this fall.

Flew the nearest yellow/black Kitfox out to a dry lake bed. Felt like we were the only people on Earth out there. Later landed on a blacktop highway and taxied in for breakfast at a remote cafe.

I've been learning the art of carbon fiber layups. My three piece engine cowls were quite a challenge but the weight savings and extra strength will be worth the effort. Preliminary trimming allowed me to temporarily mount them on the airplane. Lots of trimming, fitting, filling and sanding before painting can be done. Never too old to learn a new skill set.

Keith, your birthday was today in case you forgot. You are getting up there in years so a friendly reminder couldn't hurt. Hope this birthday finds you well my friend. Please return the courtesy of the friendly reminder by the way. I know I'll need one. Now where did I leave my car keys?

Managed to get the white base coat sprayed on this fall. Next the color scheme will be applied. Then landing gear and engine will go on. Maybe about half way with the build process now. It's been fun and still educational. I'd forgotten how much work this is since my first build back in late 2001 through 2003.

Here is the "after" photo taken in early November. We had him in two weeks before Thanksgiving.

This summer I didn't get a lot of time for building my airplane. I helped my son build his new home and did a little airplane building when possible. Busy year.
This is the "before" picture taken in May.

Finally finished with building the wings. Paint will be the next step. Might be a little too warm right now for paint with temps in the 105-110 degree range.

Done with the wing building. Now on to paint.

Spent a little time in the Arizona desert New Years day weekend. Some low level "crop dusting" type flying. Click on 1080 def. and make screen large. Hold on. The cactus go by quickly at 120 mph.
Hope you all have a fun, healthy 2016.
