Fuselage Showcase

I have friends over today for a summer BBQ so I decided to set up the plane for a little showcase. Some of the interior bits are installed, and I hastily attached the nose wheel (temporarily of course). I’m quite pleased with how the interior is looking, and very much looking forward to getting the plane on its wheels and starting the canopy install.

This showcase comes right after I spent this week working on the port side fuselage skin. This side went on a little quicker, though there’s still a lot of rivets to install, and I was short on the 5/32″ black clecos.

Installing the flange for the engine cowling requires some clamps and patience
