Elevator Root Assembly

Nov 24th – The first component of my build is the Elevator Root Assembly which is made by riveting the Elevator Root Ribs to the Control Horn.

This fairly simple task is representative of the construction technique for the entire aircraft. It consists of clamping the relevant parts together in the correct place, drilling the pilot holes, clecoing everything together, updrilling to the correct sized hole for the rivets, taking everything apart to deburr the holes, clecoing it all back together and pulling the rivets.
