We proceeded with riveting. It was lot of riveting done in few days, and the result is rewarding. Following are some pictures showing the progress. We riveted all, at the exception of the firewall, which we left until we attach the noise.
Then we flipped the canoe. This part was fun. I can not wait to sit inside the fuselage,.
We attached the second skin. Then we realized we need to detach both skin to form the bend for the intersection with bottom fuselage. Ah well, we removed both and worked on the bend. We did a bit of digging in this one and we realized that people had issues with cracks forming at the bend. So, we were very careful, sanded the edges very well before starting to bend. The bends went great.
Then we went ahead and drilled the longerons. All went great.
