Fisher FP-202 Specifications                 Back to My Home page

 I started building my FP202 around June of 1992 and completed it in June of 1993.
It took  between 600 and 700 man hours to build. Which amounted to 3 or 4 hours a night during the week
and 20 to 30 hours of work on weekends. I had some help from my dad and my girlfriend, now  wife in
completing it.  It has 350 hours total time on it.

I flew it to Oshkosh in 93 and 94. This was a 320 mile trip one way and those trips are stories in themself.

Left: the top of the first crate. I have moved since building the 202 so none of the information is valid.
Center: I would make up 3 ribs at a time which would be a weeknights work.  Time to cut and glue would be
 2 or 3 hours when everything was taken into account.
