Before (picking up the kit):
Picking up the crated kits at the Zenith Aircraft factory

Heath and Jerry each built a Zenith from a kit at the same time; one a STOL CH 701 and the other a low-wing Zodiac XL.  Since completing the first two aircraft, they've ordered a four-seat STOL CH 801 kit project:

"We would like to say thanks for your sales and building support for the 601XL and 701.  These aircraft have been great projects to work on.  I have the 601XL flying so it is hard to stop and finish the wheel pants but I am sending you photos anyway. The STOL CH 701 is done also and Jerry enjoyed it so much that he is now waiting on his STOL CH 801 project he ordered from you.

Heath Blair has a great website, where he chronicles the construction of both the Zodiac XL and the STOL CH 701 with hundreds of kit construction and assembly photos.

"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."
