Nice progress Adam!

And with the "Rivet Gods" looking over the build I think it is safe to go away on your contract job

Default Elevator alignment with a laser level

Thought this was way more fascinating than a pic of a lowly trim tab, so I thought I would post the following pics of my efforts to check the alignment of my elevators while installed "in trail" with the HS. This was pretty fun, especially when I saw just how "aligned" everything seems to be. Higher resolution pics and details of the setup are on my blog site link in the signature line.

Default Small milestone hit.

My 12 year old daughter Lauren and I were busy in the garage after she got home from school. We finished off riveting the last three ribs on the right wing. It's now off the stand and in the cradle.

My little helper did an outstanding job on the rivet gun while I bucked the rivets.

She of course had to leave her mark in the wing!





Time now to finish off the left tank!
