Wings 30 (4.0 hrs)


Honestly, there is even less to report today than in the last post.  It is Saturday and tomorrow Mike is coming over to help me back rivet the top skins in place.  As a result, there was only one task: complete all dimpling!  And that is exactly what I did. IMG_5546.JPG

After hanging the dimpled skins, I wasn’t very happy with the scarf joints.  The priming and dimpling process seamed to lead to a bulge.  I used the hand deburring tool to slightly enlarge the spar countersinks and the dimples on the inboard skin.  This helped a good deal.  I hope that riveting removes the remainder and I am left with a flush finish.

Below you can see both of the top scarf joints. IMG_5548.JPG
