Wasn’t feeling motivated today, but I came out anyway. Actually spent more time cleaning the hangar than anything, but some progress was made anyway.
Doing a pitot tube cover type mount from mykitairplane.com. Got some good advice from the internet on cutting the hole.
I’m super happy with the result. Next up, the backing plate and running the tubing.
Going MUCH faster than the other side. I need to remember to make room for the pitot tube and fuel plumming 🙂
These took a while to make and I still need to cut and drill the tops, but they came out well.
Next up is the dreaded root wing skin.
Lots of skin work going on right now.
Worked on the wing root ribs, they don’t fit well on the inside.
The the rear channel and the three doublers.
Finished the nosewheel and strut minus the holes in the axel for the cotter pins. Next is the bushing for it that I had to order a tap for. The whole thing will get test fitted Tuesday when I swing by the hangar.
I did the fitting for the spring gear and pulled about 100 rivets tonight, but didn’t take any pictures.
Flipped a coin and the right wing goes first. Got all of the ribs in the right place and the left ones marked and put away.
Next step is to pull these off, drill to 30, then 20, debur and cortec.
