Default Giant Hostetler Cessna 182

Hi all, Its been a while since I have been on. I am still building and working, just haven't had a lot of time to play on the computer. Here is the giant Hostetler 182 I am working on. I cut all the parts on my CNC machine. Might have to get a laser to make better cuts but this is awesome.

Nice start to your build. I recently decided to take the plunge on this plane as well. The Hostetter plans are a bit brief, so I will be looking forward to seeing more pictures of your progress to help with my interpretation of the plans.

Keep up the good work!

Nice photos. I'll definitely be using them for a reference. The most perplexing part that I can't seem to grasp on the plans is the 1/8" music wire used to attach F13 & 14. Do you have any photos of that?
