I riveted these parts yesterday, but you can
see the beefy angle that riveted to the
inside of the rear fuse upright.
This is the rear wing spar attach plate.
Three bolts and a million A6 rivets.
Both sides done.
Here's looking up inside the aft fuselage
right behind the rear baggage bulkhead. You
can see my antenna plate stiffener riveted
to the top skin and to the angle.
Looking from the top. Antenna is just held
in position for photo.
Next step was to fit this flap motor
bracket. I had to file the ends for it to
Match drilled from the bottom and opened up
to #20. This and some other steel parts are
ready for powder coating. I'm going to have
them coated in gloss white. The control
stick will be black (or maybe chromed!)
Lots of drilling for these parts. Anyway,
both sides are complete.
Here's the blocks primed and with the nylon
bearings. I can't install these until I get
the steel parts powder coated.
