I began this project in March 2001. Building an airplane sounded like an exciting challenge that gave me a fast airplane at the end. These planes typically cruise at more than 180 mph.

I didn't know anything about riveting when I started, but it is easy to learn. In a couple years I'll get to test my abilities when I fly this plane for the first time.

This plane is being built from a kit by Van's Aircraft.

The finished plane.... except for paint.

It all starts very innocently with two boxes of parts for the empennage--the tail of the plane.
