After months of sitting on my hands, my Zenith 750 Cruzer fuselage finally arrived!

As you can see… some assembly required. 

This first one is an experiment in equipment, getting into the habit and flow of filming myself (which adds some time and energy into the airplane build), and I want to outline some of the tedium involved in a large and complex engineering project like this.

As you can imagine, building an airplane involves a lot of repetitive labor. To entertain myself, I take the opportunity to listen to audiobooks and podcasts. Who says you can’t do more than one thing at a time?

We’ll be doing a lot more on what’s unique about this particular airplane, why I chose it, and any challenges that come along the way.
