This web site will detail the Construction of my Wittman Tailwind Airplane. This is my second airplane project, having already completed a KR2-S in 2006. I still have the building bug and wanted to try out some different construction techniques. I did not start this project from scratch like I did with my KR2S, I purchased a tack welded fuselage and almost completed wing set In March of 2008.  These pages will document my progress and construction methods.  Web site updated July of 2020 with the addition of the Controls construction photos.
