Tank End Ribs and Trap Door
I had mistakenly primed the nutplates that go inside the tank in the beginning of my work with the wings. Not realizing at the time that the nutplates are internal to the tank. You can't have anything inside the tank primed because it may flake off or interact in some way with the fuel. So my order of extra nutplates arrived and I was able to rivet the end ribs attachment plates on. Also I installed the right wing trap door into the second rib from the root of the wing.
