Wings 27 (6.0 hrs)


Today I set about riveting the leading edge to the left spar.  I completed both the riveting of the spar/rib intersections and the spar/skin intersection.  For the ribs I once again used the long straight rivet set lent to my by Mike Bullock.  I’ve now perfected my technique and the rivets came out flawless and went rather quickly.  The skin rivets are even easier with the pneumatic squeezer making quick work of these.  Don’t forget that the rivets that also intersect the ribs are a size bigger!20140706-181032-65432014.jpg
