Default VS "done" as far as Canada allows

November 4: riveted the VS skin to the skeleton. I wrapped the tungsten bucking bar in hockey tape to try to keep the scuffing to a minimum. Got it all completed in one session. All but the front two rivets on the VS-706 tip rib. There?s no room to get a squeezer or bucking bar in there, so it looks like I?ll have to fabricate something to be able to get those last two done.



And the rear spar is clecoed into place for now. Because Canada requires a pre-closing inspection, no parts of the structure can be enclosed beforehand. So I?ll have to leave the VS (among other parts) incomplete until I get enough done to have the inspector come out. This would probably include the VS, HS, possibly elevators and rudder, wing bottom skins and the bottom of the fuselage under the floor panels.





Some blue masking tape on the flush set makes quite a difference in reducing marring. I got about 20 rivets out of one piece of tape.
