Section: 35
Hours: 8

I made good progress prepping more parts for the forward upper fuselage.

I finished match drilling the side rail decks and removed them to countersink the rails. At the suggestion from other builders, I taped off the gap between the side skin and the rail channel to prevent chips from accumulating in the gap there.

Lots of chips from counter sink drilling.

Here's the dimpled rail caps clecoed onto the counter sunk side rails for test fitting.

I now have most of the forward fuselage assembly prepped and trial fitted!

Here's a side view of the control panel and sub panel bulkheads and reinforcements. Everything fits together nicely- all the holes line up (I must have been reading the instructions correctly today :-)
