AMF-14H Maranda SN:1026 Construction Log

Posted by Roger in AMF 14H Maranda SN1026, news

I am now set up to build ribs.

Since returning from Kansas City I have cleaned up my work area in the basement and arranged it for rib assembly. I put a sheet of cardboard over the table top where I will be working and another one on the floor under where I will be working. That way if the T-88 drips it should only drip on the cardboard.

The gussets that I have already cut are in zipper bags on the table behind the rib jig.

I covered the rib jig with a sheet of wax paper to try to minimize the chances of a rib getting glued to the plans. Hopefully I will be working fast enough to avoid that, but it never hurts to be careful.

Now I just need to load up the syringes with T-88 components and work up the nerve to mix a batch of glue.
