I put in another 1½ hours of deburring tonight. That’s 3 nights in a row!! Even though it’s boring work, it feels good to be working in a more steady pace again. You can quickly lose motivation when things are causing problems like the tail cone skin did. I’m glad this is such a nice kit otherwise, or I would not be making the progress I am.

I finished deburring the stringer and bulkhead rivet holes. I even dimpled all the bulkheads, except the forward F-706 bulkhead, which doesn’t get drilled until mating the center and aft fuselage. All left to do now before priming, is to deburr the skin and stringer edges.
