Finished the Forward Mid Fuselage Side Structure (Section 29)

Match drilled the side gussets to the upper longerons and Machine countersunk the holes in the gusset.

 

Riveted the cross brace to the fuselage.

Riveted the gussets and intercostals into place. Bolted on and torqued down the roll bar braces.

 

Trimmed and scuffed the NACA ducts for the fresh air vents. The instructions recommended waiting until section 35 to assemble and install.

This was a really long section but the result is really rewarding…

 

Next up I attach the aft fuselage! Exciting next step.
