Thought I would start a new thread as to not take away from the original HINGE question post.
Actually, by the date on this photo, my plane has been completed and ready for a hangar 4 years next month!

I started building a Vans RV-7 in December. I have the empenage completed and currently working on the wings. May be able to purchase the fuselage kit later this year.

Cool!

I’m nearly finished (after over 11 years) building an RV-10.  Building a kit is totally different from building from plans, and not as enjoyable to my mind.  I really enjoyed building the Pietenpol, figuring out how to make the parts.  With a kit you’re mostly just assembling parts someone else has fabricated.

I will say that the Van’s Aircraft kits are incredible in their quality.  Everything fits as it is supposed to.

I’m just about ready to put my RV-10 on its gear and hang the engine, then attach the wings.

I knew you were building a kit plane; assumed it was and RV but did not know what variant. Agreed that the kits are awesome in quality and fit. Always impressed when I do a major mock assembly and it all just lays together and lines up just right.
As you noted building a plans plane -V- a kit plane could not be more different; however I am enjoying the kit build a lot more then the Pietenpol. 

Setting on gear, hanging engine and attaching wings...all major milestones! Must feel great after all that time...looking forward to those days myself
