Hi Alan

 

we estimate by 0ctober, work commitments allowing the time frame isnt abig issue really 2 bodies working should keep a consistant work schedule but we are sure there will be some down time ,we also have to both get our licences as well !we will keep a pretty detailed work and progress log as well as plenty of pics and maybe a video as well

 

thanks for the encouragement 026_cheers.gif.2a721e51b64009ae39ad1a09d8bf764e.gif

Hi Gareth

 

Are you based in Brisbane? It would be good if I could come have a look once you start building, if thats alright with you of cause.001_smile.gif.2cb759f06c4678ed4757932a99c02fa0.gif I'm looking into starting one of the kits myself in the next for months, they sure are a awesome bit of gear. Good luck with the build

 

Cheers Jamie

Sounds good Gareth! I'll be putting in a 2200 Jab ... bit cheaper to buy, maintain and operate. I can see that the extra power could come in handy though. John.
