Riveting wing skeletons

Category: 3: Wings (Total 309h) — Steffen @ 21:32 — Hours: 6.5

I started of softly by riveting the aileron brackets. These won’t be installed until after the topskins, but now they’re ready. The squeezer could reach them all.

Then I began riveting the main ribs to the main spar. I started with the left wing.

After that, I clecoed on the aft spar…

…then I riveted it. I managed to reach all rivets with the squeezer.

Last I put the wing back in the stand, then riveted the right wing and put that in the stand also. Good days work!!
