Default RE: Top Flite Cessna 182 Skylane Build

You will enjoy the project. I am currently building a TF P47 and recently bought a TF Piper Arrow. One thing I would say is not to beat yourself up on the deadline. Build when you feel like it. Its a hobby, not a job. I started fast and furious on the P47, working almost every day on it for 6 weeks or so. Now, I havent touched it for 6 weeks. I have a lot done on it and its not too far from sanding and prepping for paint. The mood to build comes and goes and I decided to only work on it when I want to.

I tend to slow down when its time to sheet and carve LE, wingtips, etc.
