Got to spend my first full day of building. We made some pretty good progress. We made a few blunders but overall we did pretty good.
Bluder number 1 was riviting a tube in the wrong place. Scotty just rivits too fast for me to keep up with the book reading. I drilled out the rivet and we riveted the tube in the right place.
Blunder number 2 was putting the vertical stabilizer rudder hinge attach nutplate in the wrong position. I think. It just doesn’t look right. I mounted it in the only pre-drilled hole in that area of the VS spar but it’s up inside the the gusset area. I don’t eve know why I bothered drilling that hole, I only need to construct the frame.
Here’s what we got done today.

You are doing well there between the two of you! 🙂
Re Blunder 2, no you have not done it wrong, that is where it goes.
Thanks Tony! Actually fellow builder on Rans Clan sent me one of the photos from your blog showing me that I had not blundered. I feel much better now thanks to both of you!
