Have you considered where you placed in between those extremes?



That graph is a bit optimistic. I can't see a person building an F-85SR in 2000 hrs. Especially the beams and the folding mechanisme, including the reinforcements in the hull, are very time consuming. I've allready put in more than 2500 hrs @450/year and I still have about two years to go.

I know vacuum bagging takes more time, but still...
