After lots of soul searching, today the kits to make an RV 12 were ordered. All kits except the avionics and powerplant that is, did not want that stuff to sit around until I needed it. Actually a trip to see a completed RV12 several hundred miles up north was the final convincing act for me, Jim Hurd let me crawl around, over, and under his completed RV12 to get a real good look at N233TX and shared his wealth of information with me, photo below . For you suspiciously staring at the completed maroon top plane, that is my inspiration photo of a completed RV12, and a beauty she is. It belongs to TonyTessitore, who graciously gave me permission to pretty up my log with it. Thanks Tony!
