Introduction

Post by plbarrett2004 »

Hi all.

Newbie to Rivetbangers here, introducing myself. Peter Barrett, from Littlestown PA. I recently purchased a second hand RV-8 empennage and have begun work. Day one and I already discovered a mistake that requires a new part order!

Anyways, I've been reading the various forums and sites for about a year now. In the copious amount of lurking and reading I've done, I have to agree with the general sentiment that this site seems to be the most friendly and welcoming site among the RV build forums.

I look forward to participating, and give kudos to those who have put together such a great site.

Cheers,
Peter

Uh oh!

He is working under the tootilidge of Mike B!

This could be trouble!

:lol:

Enjoy the build, Peter. The most difficult thing is the "next" thing. You will see what I mean when you start building.

Welcome to the group!

Ha! Mike's been great. Gave me my first RV flight. :)

Per request, here is a pic of the project. (I haven't done much yet, but the previous owner got a start on the Horiz stab.)

Welcome Peter! Unless you are a descendant of Oscar Barrett of Dartmouth or Green Lake Wisconsin and later North Dakota we aren't related.RV-8's are great airplanes almost as good as a RV-6A, which I built and had to sell this fall. You can see pictures on my Galler N 784TB
