It's not really an airplane factory until you have the banners/posters up, right?

Sorry for the extremely late reply -- I've been offline for a bit getting a lot of workshop projects out of the way so I could start building

The image on the Van's banner came from here:

http://www.experimentalaero.com/prod..._your_own.html

I then had it (and the cutaway view) printed by these folks, whom I VERY highly recommend:

Default Finally underway!



FINALLY got started on the actual build yesterday afternoon!

Although completing a few fun (but time-consuming) projects to get the workshop prepared was enjoyable, the whole point is to build an airplane, so it felt GREAT to actually start mutilating aluminum yesterday!

Here are a few images of the work table, floor unit for the Numatix squeezer, and dimpler/vise cart I built over the past few months:

Heads up for new builders

I have consolidated most of the VAF RV-14 threads, Gotchas and FB group posts onto the digital plans at relevant locations. read only access is bellow.

Vans sells the thumbdrive plans so if you will be using this please buy one from them.

If you would like to contribute comments on the WIKI I need a PM with an email address so I can send an invite. OR send me a comment and I can add the notes myself.

Enjoy
