Fuselage “Top”

Posted on Updated on

Now that all fuel tank is installed time to glue the top of the fuselage on. This is just the structural top, a turtle deck will later be built into of this.

Before gluing the top on I cut a hole where the fuel level sending unit is located. This will make it easy to perform calibrations and if ever needed it might be possible to change the sender without removing the fuel tank.

With everything ready I mixed up some glue and started clamping and stapling the top in place.

I know that tool was here five minutes ago....

Once dry the clamps and staples were removed and the flush cut router bit trimmed off the excess plywood.

The next step is building the turtle deck, can’t wait to see how it turns out.
