Fuselage, spars

The aft fuselage required lots of trimming to get the aft spar inserted.

Fwd and aft fuselage

Mated the fwd and aft fuselage. Yet another faulty part from the machined angle components kit. This time it was the large lower splice piece, one on each side that has the pilot holes 2-3 mm wrong. Ordered more aluminium from ACS.

Some deburring and countersinking/dimpling to do first. Then while waiting for the aluminium sheet to make new components, I think I will drill up the holes for the wing spars and seat etc. Starting to look like a real aircraft.

I am starting to have a real problem now - too little space in the shop. I wonder how to fix that without totally redoing the shop.
