Brief Description:  Rear Fuselage Finished

My rear fuselage is finished. Nothing more can be done
until I receive the forward fuselage cage and rudder cables.
Once I have installed the rudder cables I can attach the
bottom skin or maybe not.
I installed the turtledeck as a unit with the skin clecoed
to the two forward formers. The small aft former is riveted
to the fuse before the turtledeck is put on as I don"t think
it would be very easy to rivet it from the inside. It took all
of 4 minutes or so to set it in place so it can be clecoed
and riveted. The fuse has to be placed on its side to rivet
the second former to the bulkhead or you have to sit on
the floor and reach up !! Not my choice. :-)
The very front formers cannot be installed until the forward
fuse is attached. They are ready to cleco and rivet.
One thing in particular I like about the Panther design is
the use of skin stiffeners on the side panels.
Yes, that is plastic on the TD skin. No reason to pull it
off yet.
