Broke the countersinking bit

Started countersinking the angles for the fwd fuselage and managed to break the countersinking tool because the angle slipped on the support. 2 new 120 degree tools ordered at Avery tools.

Fuselage tail finished

Finished riveting the fuselage tail cone and turtle deck. The picture was a bit poor. The skin is really perfectly smooth, it is the reflection that makes it look like it is dented all over.

Found this strange rivet among the others. It appears to be SS but with a rusty stem, hmm

Started on the front fuselage. Deburred all edges and drilles some pilot holes. Have to study the drawing some more, because following the drawing will not work with countersunk rivets here either.

Fuselage riveting

Finished with all deburring and priming and all the details needed (I hope). Started riveting together the aft fuselage.
