Assembling Vertical Stabilizer
|Assembling rear spar and doubler, plus hinge brackets (Full size)|
I started the vertical stabilizer by cleco'ng together the rear spar and doubler. I then final drilled the holes in the two pieces. I then cleco'd on the 3 sets of hinge brackets and final drilled them.
|Assembling fwd spar, rear spar and ribs of vert stab (Full size)|
I then got out the 4 ribs and deburred, scotch-brited, and fluted them. This didn't take long. Then I cleco'd them to the forward and rear spars and final drilled the holes.
|Assembling vert stab skin (Full size)|
I then put on the skin, and cleco'd it in place. I didn't start to final drill the skin holes. That will wait for another day.
