Brief Description:  Final riveting of Vstab skins.

Completed the vertical stabiliser riveting today.

Not 100% happy with the outcome, not only do I feel that the the strength in the upper area of the Vstab leaves a bit to be desired, I ended up with a very slight twist (luckily in a favourable direction) of the top end of the leading edge and this will mean that I'll have to build a similar and matching twist into the top of the rudder horn protrusion.

Acouple of extra stiffener angles riveted along the internal faces of the Vstab skins would not go astray, as I feel there is too much potential for flexing of the skins in the upper areas of the fin.


A good way of getting more shelf space in the worshop is to use up all the bits!
