Back in the Saddle Again

Thanks to some trash talk from a good friend, I'm now actively working on my Zodie. At this point, the project is over 8 years old and after a LONG break, it's nice to be building again.

I'm also the proud father of a new Jabiru 3300 Engine which is due to be shipped in Sept. 2006.
