Task: Drilled center flap bearing block,
installed more static line clips, drilled center cabin cover
I was able to start by measuring and drilling the center cabin
cover. The quickbuild fuselage didn't have holes drilled in
the center floor stiffeners so I had to measure per the plans.
I was surprised the QB'ers didn't do this as it is much easier
to drill before the bottom skin is riveted on. Then I drilled
out 2 rivets in the aft part of the fuse for 2 static line
clips. I opened the holes up to #30 to accomodate the NAS
rivets with a 1/8 shank and 3/32 head. Lastly I drilled the
center flap bearing block to #10 holes and made the small
relief in it for the aft seat floor.
the plans, I made a mark on the F-732C center section cover
and then used a square to bring the line down to the floor
Once marked, I drilled the 4 holes #40 and then progressively
enlarged them untill reaching the final size of #19 for a
I began fabricating the F-680 flap bearing block. I first
drilled 2 holes vertically #10 for the An3 bolt and then measured,
marked, and cut away a very small section on the forward bottom
potion of the block. It is cutout to prevent interference
with the aft seat floor.
then bolted the flap actuator in place and installed the bolts
into the bearing blocks.
I fitted the F-766A channel/motor assembly to the actuator
weldment. I was finally able to put those washer wrenches
I bought from Avery Tools to use!
F-766A channel was then clecod to the bottom floor, F-705
channel, and then a C-clamp was put in place to hold the F-766B
to the channel for drilling.
the F-766A channel as a guide, I drilled through the F-766B
