Continued assembly

Riveted the flange bearings to the control column.

 

Riveted the upper engine mounts to the upper longerons. Not sure why the Plans call out cherrymax rivets for some of the holes rather than solid rivets for all. Seems odd.

 

Riveted the engine mounts and doublers to the lower longerons. Same weirdness with the cherrymax rivets.

One thought on “Continued assembly

  1. Cherrymax rivets are stronger than the AN4 rivets (especially in shear), there just vastly more expensive, and a good bit heavier which is why they are use judiciously throughout the design.
