All week long, I keep thinking that I’m going to get a bunch of time that I can dedicate to the plane, and it keeps NOT happening. This weekend was no different. Between work, chores around the house, and family stuff (and a rousing game of KICKBALL!)… the weekend slips by pretty quickly.
I was able to get some more riveting done on the horizontal stabilizer today. This morning I got the nose ribs all riveted in place. I also managed to put a slight gouge in the skin. Let’s hope it’s nothing a little body filler won’t hide when it’s time for paint.
Next, I dropped the rib/spar/stringer assembly I put together yesterday into the skins. The nose ribs were riveted to the spar, then it was time for kickball!
Once kickball was over, I limped back into the garage to get a little more work done. I was able to get the front spar completely riveted on one side. So a few hundred more rivets, and the HS should be done!
