Aft fuselage

Spent lots of time just studying the drawings. The sequence of assembling is not entirely clear and the it will be impossible to follow when using flush rivets. Things has to be countersunk/dimpled and that cannot be done when half of the skin is already riveted on. On the point about flush rivets the drawings are completely lacking information.

Things are shaping up. The aft fuselage is clecoed together and I started updrilling. I made the rudder pulleys, so they are ready to be riveted on when the time comes. I managed to updrill one pulley so the hole became very skewed, and ordered new ones.
