Cozy Mark IV Skills Required

Are there any special skills required?
This is an project that anyone with the patience to study a book of plans can build. There are no special skills or experience required.

If you can use a screwdriver, cordless drill, sandpaper, paint brush, and mix cups of epoxy then you have all the skills necessary. One other useful skill is the ability to use a credit card with careless abandon at your local aircraft supply store.

The plans start out with an education section that walks the builder through some practice pieces and confidence-building fiberglass layups. (See my tutorial on performing a fiberglass layup for an illustrated example on composite construction. This tutorial is a fairly typical explanation of what is involved in many of the layups on a homebuilt composite aircraft.
