Time: 6 Hours
In preparation for building up the aft fuselage tail cone I needed to debur the two side skins, the large bottom skin and the small aft bottom skin. First I used the soldering iron to remove the blue protective tape from the rivet lines on the exterior side and the entire tape from the interior side of the two side skins.
The plans now call for you to add the aft fuselage side skins to the mid fuselage section one at a time. Pay close attention to how the skins line up in relation to other sections. Once you have the side skins in place you can now add four of the six bulkheads. The last thing I did today was to add asked small section of bottom skin to the side skins. This added some lateral stability to the whole structure.
