Storm Makes Progress Building The Air Cam

Storm Rivets Vertical Stabilizer

If you are wondering how Storm is faring with the airplane kit he is building, I can tell you that he is having a blast!  He has always been fond of working with rivets and clecos.  He gets to handle plenty of them while building this Air Cam kit plane.

So far progress has been good.  Thanks to a suggestion from Jim Brown, we have been documenting the build with time lapse photos.  To give you an idea of how things are progressing I compiled the video below.  This time lapse represents about six hours spent assembling the wings.

  1. That did not go well, good music and sound of rivets, but NO VIDEO, what can I say, welcome to aviation. I have been draining gas tanks all day on the PA12. 180 turned out OK on its fuel. Try again and continue having a good time. Is he working on the plane at the airport or somewhere else?? GOD BLESS

      Maybe something was going on with youtube when you watched. I have tried on several machines at different times and the video always plays. Glad to hear 180 was OK on fuel. He is working on the plane at the airport.

  2. I would love to see the first flight. Stormy, Did you keep enough tools to build an airplane? Now we know why the coach had heating problems !!

      I know what you mean. We have to leave before the plane will be finished. Maybe we can get someone to video the first flight and send it to me to share.
      Fortunately someone else is supplying the tools because NO he did NOT keep all those tools. It has been tough for him, but he has whittled our tool load down to the bare minimum 🙂
