The first job of this session was to finish off the tailwheel skin trimming. On checking I wasn’t 100% happy with the clearance of the skin to the tail spring mount so I filed a bit more. I also opened up the forward hole to allow access to the nut that holds the spring in the mount.
Once I was happy with the tailwheel skin and mount it was time to start on the ‘fun part’ (actual words from the instructions!). First I laid out two saw horses.
Next I located the aft fuselage bottom skin and clecod on the F-708 & F-709 bulkheads and bottom J-Stiffeners.
Next I loosely placed the upper J-Stiffeners and clecod on the right side skin.
Then the left side skin.
Now I clecod the F-706, F-710, F-711 & F-712 bulkheads in place.
I tell you what the instructions weren’t wrong, that really was fun and it looks so awesome!
