Side Skins Section Complete!

I have finally finished another major section of the plans!

Bolting the main landing gear mounts was fairly straightforward but tedious as there are many bolts and some that are challenging to reach. I ground down a few sockets to allow me to get my torque wrench between the spar bulkheads.

After several sessions, I eventually got all of the bolts installed and torqued to spec.

The final task was to rivet the forward fuselage ribs into place. These are riveted after the floor panels are installed.

After setting the final 50 rivets, this section of the plan was complete.

Onwards to the steps.
