Welcome to my RV-7 building site.
My name is Steffen and I’m from Denmark.
In my garage I am building my own airplane, a kitplane called RV-7 from Van’s Aircraft.
Building my own plane has always been a dream of mine, ever since I started working as an aircraft mechanic (1993), but it was a trip to the EAA Oshkosh AirVenture in 2006, that really got me started.
This site works as my building log, where I try to write a few words after every day in the shop, maybe even add a few photos! 🙂
The kits are divided into 4, that is: Empenage, Wings, Fuselage and Finishing kit. I decided to buy all the kits at once, to save some money on the overseas shipping. Not included in these kits are: engine, propeller and avionics. I do have some ideas on these, but since its very expensive parts, I’m not gonna buy these before I am close to completing the plane.
I recieved the kits the 7th of december 2007, all crates undamaged! 😀
This is what the complete kit looks like:
I have finished building the empenage and the wings, now I’m working on the fuselage.
