    6 weeks from last posting, and here's the pilot's seat area. Still a lot of drilling & fitting to do, but the next big change will get really long, really quickly with the tail support structure.

    Neat project, Eric, I don't think there are many others in the USA. Is this a kit or are you building from plans?

    I could not find any on the FAA registry currently. There was one in the U.S. in the mid 1990's - there are a couple of magazine articles around that time about it. I did find some on the U.K. registry, and there's probably a few flying in other countries.

    I am working from plans so far, but they offer very complete kits and are adding more options all the time.

    Ok, so I didn't get to the aft-of-cockpit tail structure yet, but decided to mock up the fuselage top.
    Panels end up being pretty good size using a straight-across bulkhead approach. The factory offers a molded fiberglass part that covers all this - from firewall to aft of the aft cockpit. I'm trying to build it up from multiple pieces of sheet metal for a somewhat different shape.
