More riveting of the forward fuselage

This week was spent in a couple of sessions riveting more of the forward fuselage.

First I riveted the forward floor panel. Although upside down this is where my feet will rest when sat in the pilots seat.

Next it was time to rivet the joints between the floor panel and the side panels.

I also installed the gusset on the inside and the 5 bolts that attach the gusset to the skin.

Doesn’t look like much but that’s a good 6.5 hours work. That’s all for this week.
