Looking good Phil! Did you have a chance to meet Mazda Ibrahimi? It looks like you both about to start on fuselage. Let the competition begin! :grin:

I remember that feeling very well! It is nice to build only one of something instead of two in opposite mirror images. Keep us posted! See you at the show very soon!
