Flipped the Canoe !
Today I reached a huge milestone in the RV building world. I was able to finish all the riveting on the lower section of the fuselage and turn it over or "flip the canoe". Karl and Ben my neighbors came over and with Bekah we had a very successful roll over of the fuse. We then lowered it onto a rolling stand that I made from a loaner stand that a friend from my EAA Chapter gave me a few months ago. Now my airplane will look like a canoe for the next few weeks until the rear skins go on and it starts looking like an airplane ;-)
The fuse looks great and I am really excited to be at this point in the build and moving forward through the next steps that involve the upper sections of the fuse and then onto the finishing kit.
