I will be using this site to document my construction of a Van's RV-7. My kit was shipped post 2/02 and
is the totally pre punch variety. The construction techniques I will document are for the kits that require no jigs
for the emp. You build this emp. on your work bench. Pre 2/02 7 kits still required the use of emp.
jigs, post 2/02 7 kits do not. All ribs are pre punched. There's a little more to building these emps. than
just clecoing together and riveting.....................but not much. Some people will call us assemblers, not
builders, but I'll take it:-)
This is my second homebuilt aircraft, but first aluminum one. I have finished metal work on the vertical stab,
horizontal stab and rudder. I will be posting pictures of the construction process of each major component.
I will also be adding links to various informative web sites related to this project. Hang with me, it's
going to be a fun ride.
Check back often. I will be using this home page to post my lastest progress picture. It may be the
lastest greatest or my lastest not so greatest (but you can always drill those out:-). It will always be a progess report
on where I am at in the construction process.
