Maybe I can answer some questions-I live in Carmel valley and am building a Mark IV. What is your status of interest and inclination? Do you have plans yet?

Give me yur phone # and no problem seeing my project...I am at 831-915-4342.
I think for the cost and the versatility you will find the Mark IV to be a great choice.

jany77,
Several woodworking hobbiest hang out here, I have a decent shop I used to spend time in (business & airplane have limited my woodworking), and Dust's other major hobby was woodworking. I'm not very far along, but so far I've found composites much easier than woodworking. A little different skill set, but your experience with jig building will be useful! I'm sure Dust will chime in here as well.

As requested

we were building the rear bottom between the landing gear opening and the fire wall. it was over filled with beige foam, looked sorta like maple. A new to composites person was there and was wondering how to trim it, thinking in his mind, maple, i walks over with a dove tail saw, hacked it off near flush, picked up a sanding block with 36 grit abrasive and sanded to shape - the whole process took 3 or so minutes.

foam be easy, maple be hard

wood joints have perfect fit

foam joints have thick micro or floxable fit

it is all easy as ---------- foam, now out to the workshop - need to hand plane a hard maple top flat to a table i am making my son
