Right Wing Skin Is Riveted On!   February 25th, 2009

With Fabiola’s help, we just finished the top skin on the right wing…it went much faster thant the left..maybe we’re getting good at this!

The row of rivets along the rear spar can be squeezed, so I decided to do that instead of driving/bucking them. It wasn’t too confortable, since the bottom jig brace (that long 2×4 running along the jig) kept getting in the way, but I didn’t want to take the wing off the jig just for this.

Finally, here is the top of the wing, nice and shiny..

Now I have the ailerons, flaps, and fuel tanks to do….
