Default Top wing skins riveted

Reached a milestone in my project, got the top wing skins riveted on the port wing. Starting to look like an airplane.

Looks Great! Your riveting is clean About how much time invested on the port panel?

Thanks

Mike

Thanks guys, sorry for the late reply... I've been in the workshop ;-)

Nice to hear word of encouragement on the workmanship. Funny, when I look at it, all I see are the imperfections but I am very pleased overall. Only one area bothers me and I'll post more on that with some pictures.

Honestly I didn't track the hobbs on the port wing. So much time was spent figuring out stuff and I had to undo some things to move forward. I think I removed and re-installed the skins half a dozen times in the end. It took me two years but I estimate 6 months for the starboard wing. Oh wait, I 90% built ailerons in there too.

I'm working on flaps right now because I don't want to start the starboard wing and have to move houses in the middle.
