Riveting the HS Skins

Starting with the left side, we spent a few hours today riveting the skins onto the skeleton. We took it real slow in the begining because it was our first real attempt at riveting other than practice projects. Rebekah picked up the gun and shot while I bucked. We got the Center Nose Rib done first and did an absolutely beautiful job. They all came out flush and super smooth to the touch. Absolutely not bad for a first shot at riveting. Note the directions tell you the proper order to rivet so that you don't paint your self in a corner. Make sure to follow them closely if this is your first time.
