Fuselage starting to take shape

I finally had no excuse not to start assembling the fuselage.  I drew some lines on my workbench and stood the fuselage sides up vertical for the first time.  Now I am trying to clamp everything together so it is nice and square.

Here’s a picture that attempts to show how much progress I made polishing the fuselage sides compared to the unpolished inside.  It has come a long way from the mill finish.

I worked on a few other parts this week.  I had to remake on of the aluminum angle pieces that I made too small and I bent a few more parts on my sheet metal brake.

  1. Oh my word where did everything go? Looks like things are moving right along.
