On the 4th day of Christmas our Panther Builders sent to us – Beautiful views!!!
Here is a note from builder Rick Holland from Castle Rock, CO
Attached some photos of my progress on my Panther. Have the fuselage on the gear and have a ways to go with it. Tail, wings and fuel tanks were finished a while ago, and I even found a used mid-time O-320 160 HP conical mount Lycoming (just like Dan recommends, with help and advise from Brian S., who already has a near identical engine mounted and running on his Panther).
The kit is going together well, all machined, welded, pre-drilled and pre-bent parts fit is excellent. Support and the manual have been great, and having the manual online is nice knowing I always have the latest info right on my laptop on the workbench. And I always look forward to the SNF and Oshkosh Panther Parties, incredible how much you can learn talking face to face with other Panther builders (and how much your motivation level increases to finish), and those home made cookies are fantastic.
Merry Christmas to you, Dan, Paul and the rest of the Panther gang, keep up the good work, see you at SNF.
