More riveting and flap work

Not much to add to last weeks post to be honest. This week started out by riveting more of the baggage area…

And in between riveting the fuselage I started riveting the flap together.

It’s funny how quickly it all comes back when you work on something from way back in the project.

But eventually, all the flap riveting was finished and it is ready to be mounted back on the wing.

So, back to the fuselage the firewall sealant had arrived which meant that I could finally close up the front of the fuselage. I pealed back the side skins and applied the sealant.

I applied sealant to the bottom of the firewall (top in this picture) and then riveted every rivet I could reach in the forward side skins. Lastly, I fitted the floor skin and cleco clamped every hole.

That’s it for this week. I know it doesn’t seem like much but given the circumstances I think it’s making great progress.


  1. Hi Abe, Just read your entire build log and I do admire your workmanship and patience!
    What has happened though? No updates since May? Have you stopped?
    Any progress since then?
    Keep on building, onward and upward!

    • Thanks for reading and commenting. I’m still working on the project just a little behind on the blog posts. I’ll make an effort to catch up over the coming weeks so stay tuned. 🙂
