Airplane Parts Wall

All of the airplane parts come in small baggies so we have organized them and stapled them onto our wall.  We just slit the bag open and take out the ones we need and the remaining parts remain organized on the wall. We organized by priority number. The night before we work on a section we will search our PDF parts list electronically to get the priority numbers. Overall I think it will be much faster to find the parts. It would be nice if Rans published the priority number in the manual too.

  1. Stumbled on your blog while looking for paint schemes. I’m building an S-20 as well. It’s been a great experience so far!

    • Hey Ryan,
      I have lurked on your site before. You have made some great progress since I saw it last. Paint schemes have been on my mind for awhile now. Done right, it is one of those things that makes you even more excited and proud of the plane. I am working on covering the small parts right now but hope to start building the baggage compartment soon. I need to update my site with a coverings post. The fact that you have blue glue and you are able to cover inside makes me believe you are also using the Stewart System. I have some friends that have used both glues and they say they like Stewart System a lot better, it is more forgiving and doesn’t contain all the carcinogens. Thanks for all the pics, I am sure they will come in handy! Best of luck with your build!

  2. It’s exciting to think about paint, but it’s a daunting task for me at the moment since it is an expensive task and there’s an art to it. Not as easy as “Put rivet into hole, pull rivet.”

    Yep, I’m using Stewart. I have no complaints so far. I’m hoping to cover the fuselage in May. I have only done a few small pieces at the moment.
