6 January 2017 Patricia only got a few hours in the workshop today. It has been a busy week and not as much time available for building as Patricia would have liked. All the same, young Gwen (51 weeks old today) was helpful. She has been practising pulling rivets ready to pull a ‘live rivet’ on the WXYZ Plane on her first birthday, next week!
The Forward Fuselage is now clecoed together, but needs more work done before it can be mated to the rear fuselage. Next week should see a lot of ‘aeroplane lookingness’ coming together!
11 January: A few fiddly bits and some backdrilling and the forward fuselage is as far as it can go before mating with the rear fuselage..
