A step-by-step video guide for builders of the popular Zenith CH601XL aircraft kit. Fuselage Part 2 takes you from the lower fuselage through completion.

This DVD is a double disk volume in a series of videos developed to cover the entire build process for the CH601XL kit.

Fuselage Part 2 continues the building sequence where FUSELAGE Part 1 left off. These 2 video volumes were designed to be used in sequence to provide a seamless demonstration of assembling the 601XL fuselage. It takes the builder to almost fuselage completion, just short of the landing gear assembly. These videos will save you TIME and MONEY during the building process as you will make fewer mistakes by watching someone else perform each task.

Our goal is to help you finish your project sooner and also allows you to do a better job building by providing confidence in having another builder work by your side!

This affordable DVD video is approximately 3 hours in length and is divided into various video chapters to make navigation and review of desired sections fast and easy.

Anyone anticipating building a 601xl, would be a... more...
