Began Fuselage Assembly
Tonight was the first "official" night of fuse assembly with actual rivets being set. It really feels great to be at this point.
First I installed the bolt and spacer between the F-704 halves. Since I had fabricated the spacer so long ago It took me a while to find where I had stored these parts.
I had to use three washers on each to cover up the threads. From what I understand this is normal for the tailwheel models.
Finally, some riveting. I started by riveting the F-704H Side Plates to the skins, but only in the locations pictured.
Looks good from here.
