Horizontal Stabilizer Assembly Front

Together with my dad I worked on the final assembly of the horizontal stabilizer, starting with the front spar. We accidentally riveted 1 hole that will be used in the future to secure the horizontal stabilizer to the fuselage, so we had to drill that one out again.

Now attach the front spar with the ribs to the left skin.

Riveting the skin to the front spar.

Repeat for the right skin.

With the bucking bar in the front of the horizontal stabilizer, we pushed too hard, which resulted in a minor dent.

It’s so small, I’ll fix that later, when the horizontal stabilizer assembly is finished.

We are not finished yet, the right skin and the rear spar still need to be attached.

Time: 7 Hours, Rivets: 175/1
