Brief Description:  Buildup of wing skeleton

Time for the rivet gun! My beloved squeezer doesn't work here. Assembly of the wing skeletons was accomplised today; 4h for the right side, 2.5h for the left.

The structure went together quite easily, though it was a bit tight in the area around the wing walk doublers. On the right side, I had to drill out a few rivets. On the left, I assembled the frame without the two inner-most ribs in place. I riveted in 3 and 4 .. 3 was easy to access, and then installed 2, rivetd, and 1 and riveted. The flages face inward, so this gave great access. I won't be so lucky when I have to rivet the skins.

Got to try out my wing stand, too! Works pretty well.
