In a recent poll of the AMA membership, 39.4% stated they were interested in building. Add to that fact that the AMA Plans Services sells a significant number of plans each month and it is apparent that some people are building, or at least thinking about it. In keeping with my efforts to encourage modelers to actually build models, I am presenting the following video about building an aircraft from plans, which was made available by the AMA.
On October 10, 2013 the AMA conducted a webinar to share tips on selecting plans and building techniques. Hundreds of AMA members joined the webinar for an interactive online class to learn how to identify a good working set of plans and and to learn about basic building techniques.
The AMA indicated that they hope to offer further webinars in the future. If so, I will be posting any model building videos here as they become available.
