I started on my kit 10/1/15. The only manual I came home with was for the VS. I finished the VS. I received the rest of my manuals in november and have the frames built for the HS, RU, elevators & ailerons. I order the practice fabric kit from Spruce. As soon as the weather clears up I will start covering some of the frames. I have also worked on the fuel tanks. I am glad I started early on the tanks. They are a mess. Still chasing down one leak in the right tank.
My plan is to finish the flaps and wings.
Any suggestions on what to start on after that?

The helpful article "How much space does it take to build an AirCam" posted under "News" on this website recommended the following order: Control surfaces(ailerons, flaps, rudder, horizontals); vertical then the center section and the wings last.

I read the suggested article. Good tips.
I started the wing.before the center section. I'll do the center next. I'll wait to cover the wing till later. The wing stretched my building space. It's a little tight in the garage. The good news is I am using some of the big pieces. Once I complete the wing frames, I can move them to the hanger and free up some space in my garage.
