0947 - First pictures from the factory

I just got these pictures from the factory...

First, the overall airplane:



The instrument panel and seats...note that the panel's not quite complete yet:



A closer shot of the tail, with N number, the stripes, and the emblem:



Whee! It came out very well indeed.

Totally awesome, Jay!

LMK when you fly it out here to Sac Exec or Lincoln...

Wow...that bubbletop must make this a hell of a fun plane to fly...

Visibility is fantastic. You can see every direction but down. I do have a sun shade in there (or will; I can't tell from these pictures, but I've bought one), and a hat will be pretty much required, but even so, it's great.

I'm really, really pleased with it. They did a great job taking my design and making it real.

I do believe that this merits a "woot!" The paint came out splendidly, and I really dig the bubble top.

I love traditional electromechanical instrument panels :D

Well, this one's almost that: traditionally, the gyro instruments (heading indicator and attitude indicator) are vacuum powered, but not on this airplane. Everything's electrical. There's a backup power source to keep things running in case the alternator dies.
