HS Skins in Works

May 13th, 2011

Left Skin Fit to Sub Structure

Now that the sub structure/skeleton is completely prepped/drilled, it is time to cleco on the skins and match drill them together. Here is the start of the left HS skin. Once this is on, you have to complete the drilling and fluting of the inboard ribs that surround the fore spar. Then you match drill them to the skin, the spar, and the stiffeners. Here is where I have seen several make some mistakes that are costly.

It is starting to look like I am building a plane. I called it good for the night. It was late and I needed to take a break and snuggle with my lovely wife.
