Default Top Flite Cessna 182 Skylane Build

First let me introduce myself, my name is Dan and I am 27 years old and father of 2. I am telling all you modlers out there that this isn't just a retired man's hobby (no offense). This Top Flite Cessna 182 Skylane (TFC182) is my first kit build and in turn is also my first scale build. I am very excited to start this and will be starting this in a week when the rest of my supplies come. My goal is to have this completed and ready to fly in 3 to 4 months tops. I really need all you guys out there to keep me motivated to reach my deadline! Here are my plans for this build: cockpit kit, O.S. 75AX, strandard servos, flaps and a full fiberglass and paint job. I want to show that this is possible for a young guy without many skills, a family, and low budget. So please keep checking back and keep me motivated with finished TFC182 projects and questions, concerns, ideas and tips. This thread should help everyone and I will document as much as you guys want with lots of pics.
Here are a few to start:
