Thank you so very much, for making your log available. I am going to need all the help I can get, and feel you have been a big part of that. Again I thank you. I have plans 1239 and have just started cutting out all my ribs. My first plane was something I made out of plywood, nails and screws. It flew quite nice, but the screws became to lose, and striped out to much along the ribs and seams.. I was sixteen at the time, and my parents wouldn't let me keep it. I ended up in the fire one late evening.. So I thought i would build a Benson gyro copter. Flew very well without any problems for 70 hours until I had a blade strike flaring to steep. This was over thirty years ago. This will be my biggest and best project yet. It has many years for a project like to come along, that will fill all my flying needs. Living in Canada with so many lakes, I look forward to seeing more Bearhawks on floats. I know it will just fine and do well... Thanks Chris.. Donny

What a great project - hopefully you can make some more entries. Looks like it's been a while. Are you still working on them?

Hey Chris, Your work looks great. The hole centering tool you recommended is just what I need. Where do I find them? Thanks Ron

Looks great Chris. Seems the hardest part is posting new pics and entries to epercraft. Keep up the good work.

Whats up? How is the project going. I have taken some time off from mine. Thought if I spent some time with momma that it'd help her not to feel rejected for another,nope . They take all they can get. How did you change the color in your BH paint scheme? David

Great start, Chris. Happy Building. And remember, if you get an airplane out of the process, you're doubly blessed - enjoy the BUILDING!

Good start Chris. Interesting site. Wish my boat project wasn't taking so long so I could get a start on my plane too. Oh well, gotta finish one thing before starting another or else nothing will get finished.

Looks like you have a very nice shop. You probably are way ahead of me, but if you ever need addresses etc i'll help where I can. I'm talking to Don/CNC tubing. He told me today that I may possibly be able to get a fus kit in a month +.

...and so the journey begins! Your posts ooze enthusiasm and while I am likely to commit to full fastbuild BearHawk when I eventually sell my Maule, I am keen to follow your progress. Best regards from DownUnder!
