Task: Assembled parts
This evening I assembled many of the parts that were primed
earlier in the week. I finished the seat backs and then moved
on to the forward deck. The first task was riveting the F-768C
seal supports to the F-768B outer sub-panels. Then the F-768C
seal support was riveted onto the F-768A center sub-panel..Next
the F-697 hat section was riveted to the center sub-panel. I
was only able to squeeze the top two rivets as the others are
too far to reach with the hand squeezers.I'll need another set
of hands to shoot/buck the rest of those rivets.
most of the sub-panel has been riveted together other than the
main F-745-L/R ribs. They need to be installed after the interior
is painted and the rudder/brake pedals have been installed.
The last part we assembled tonight was riveting the F-643-1
channel to the center sub-panel.
