I saw something disappointing when fitting the control column. It appears that one (or both) of my stick weldments are not straight. I will go back to Vans and ask them about this, because the sticks are very visible from within the cockpit. If they look bad, It may reflect negatively on the overall construction.. ;-) Here are a couple pics that outline this issue...
Anyway, The control column did go together well, aside from the weldment issue. I made some blocks per the instructions and temporarily attached the two bulkheads together with the installed control column. ;-)
