Well I have steadily been putting in on the HS over the last week and I have gone from selecting all the parts to drilling deburing fitting, countersinking and now ready for paint.

During this time I was helped out with a vist by Peter Pendergaast, a tech Councillor for the SAAA. He was refered to me by a number of members from the Chapter 20 - Kyneton group as 'a good man to talk too'.
Let me say, Peter is firstly a great guy, and secondly a great plane building mentor. Some of his 'tricks' and advice will save me a lot of heartache. Thanks Peter.
He checked my build progress so far and thought it was "well done" and so basically I am very happy. It is always good to get an experienced hand passing his knowledge on to us newbees....
