Wing Kit Arrival

Well, finally after a wait of just over 6 months the wing kit was  delivered in two wooden crates.

Even though it was a long time  waiting for the wings, I was still  working on the empennage , so I  suppose it was not that big of deal.   Sure glad I did order it when I  did though.

Started unpacking all the items packed into these  two boxes.  Vans sure  utilizes every bid of space.  As I unpacked my  daughter helped me  unwrap, sort and inventory all the pieces.

At the start of the empennage kit, I put all the parts like rivets,  bolts, nut plates, etc that came in brown bags into storage bins.  I did  this again with all the wing parts as it made a huge difference to me  during construction.  Everything was put in its place and easy to find.

Now that inventory and unpacking are done, it is on to  construction.
