Riveting tailcone

6.5 hours

First I riveted the bottom skin. For this I had the tailcone on it's side on the benches, but forgot to take a picture. Nathaniel helped me with those rivets as I can only reach one side. After that, put it back on the sawhorses and worked on the side rivets.

Here I have most of the rivets in. The forward bulkhead isn't riveted for now. It will be done when the center and tailcone are joined together.
