Build Diary 21-May-05

A good day in the workshop today, continued with fitting of the empannage. Final measure and drilling of HS, tail wheel bracket. Started with VS.

This section needs trimming off - the build instructions. Not sure why it could not have been trimmed off earlier.
It's really looking like an aeroplane now.
All clamped in place.

The tail wheel spring bracket had not been fitted. I think it's needs to be fitted before the last tail rib.
I thought at this stage it would be a good idea to fit the inspection panel nut plates - easier to get to.

How ever drawing 40 suggests they should ne counter sunk #6, but I can't find any in the kit parts bags!!!
