What model are you building?

Postby captain_john » Sun Feb 13, 2005 10:47 pm

I would like to see how many people are building (or currently flying) which model(s).

I would like to differentiate the "A's" from the straights as well.

I am thinking -9A's will prevail, followed by -8A's.

Not sure how this polling function works, so let's give it a try!

I just wanted you to know, I omitted the -3's due to the fact that there were too many polling choices for the software to allow.

Cast AWAY!

Heavily leaning toward the -8, but haven't voted yet.
Still need some taildragger time - weather's not cooperating!

I need to decide soon, as with the 6-8 week lead time for wing kits I'll need to order soon - the only thing keeping me from riveting the VS and HS is weather - I need warm weather to prime...

Hey guys... I hope you are doing your own voting.

We can't put you down. You need to plug it in yourself. There are reasonable measures in this polling function to limit how many times someone votes... sooooo you need to plug it in yourself.

Please do it, if you haven't already.

As I understand it there are 200 QB kits of one version or another in Que. Pretty impressive numbers considering how hard it is to find any second hand kits of any version out there.
