Today I continued with the skeleton of the vertical stabilizer. After deburring the edges I removed all the blue plastic. There is a lot of it and it sucks. Putting together the structure was pretty easy. It was followed up by match drilling all the holes that were currently clecoed together.
After building the skeleton we had to take a bunch of clecos out to fit the skin. This was a great step in the process as it really felt like I was building an airplane and not playing with metal. The hardest part here was lining up the center rib. It just felt like it wanted to fight me the entire time. I am glad I had my dad there to help out on this one.
Tomorrow I will have the joy of removing a bunch of clecos and match drilling the skin
