Drilling aft deck

Category: Forward Fuselage — Steffen @ 22:26 — Hours: 4

After more than two months away from the project, I finally found the energy this weekend to start building again.
I set out to get the fuselage leveled out and getting the aft deck drilled.

Here the aft deck is clamped to the aft fuselage, and the fuselage is leveled.

Leveling the forward end…

After I was happy with the result, I drilled the aft deck to the fuselage.

I desided to go a little ahead in the plans and fabricate the spacers that go under the aft deck…

Spacers in place ready for drilling…

…drilled!

Sunday night I spent a couple of hours with my good buddy Bent, making this fuselage stand bracket. My plan is to use the engine stand I got for x-mas as a rotating fuselage stand.
