AMF-14H Maranda SN:1026 Construction Log

A Rib Is Born! Well at least the first rib is assembled.

I finally got time to assemble a rib. Things went well. Jeremiah helped me and even took some videos, so I am posting them today as well. The videos are in AVI format. My Windows media player doesn’t do much for them, but my Quick Time player shows them very nicely.

We built the rib as a team. I applied the glue and Jeremiah stapled the gussets in place. Jeremiah got a bit carried away with the staples in some areas, but by the time we finished he was doing very well.

Here is the video of getting started on the first rib:

Here is the video of me showing off the finished rib:
