Forward Floor Stringers

Having completed page E3 (Main Spar and Undercarriage Channel), the next step is to attach the forward floor stringers. The rivets go up through the bottom skin, so I had to rotate the fuselage assembly onto its side. It winds up resting on the forward upright for the main spar carry thru, which I clamped onto my work table. Once I put it back down, I’ll add the insulation foam to the floor.

Hopefully the plane won’t ever bank this hard in flight!

Not an exciting task, but I filled all the rivet heads now since I’m not sure when I’ll have easy access to the belly again
