The skinning continues...

Build hours: 110
The 3/32" clecoes were changed out for 1/8" clecoes and the tail was placed in a saddle so that skinning could continue. Bulkhead "C" was braced so that the edges would remain aligned during the pattern making and skinning process. The poster board pattern was fitted and trimmed for 1/2 of the C-D skin from the bottom stringer to the top stringer. The pattern was found to align correctly on the opposite half and also on both sides of UCB - we must have done something right! The C-D skin will be installed as 2 seperate pieces to reduce waste and make it easier to install. The additional seam will be covered by the turtle deck.
Pictures to follow...
