Upper Forward Fuse 3/3/2012 - 3/11/2012

Upper forward fuselage goes together very quickly.
There is one angle piece that needs fabricated, but the rest is just cutting and deburring, and match drilling a few pieces.  Seems very small and quick compared to sideskins.
 
Angle brace that has to be fabricated.  Only hard part is getting the bend in the end.
 
Forward skin installed.
 
I am holding off riveting it together until I get and test fit the aerosport carbonfiber panel, and layout my avionics to see if any of the ribs will need cut and re-enforced.
 
Having it in place really makes it look like more of a plane.  I can't wait until I can get the cabin top on.  Proabably a couple more months.
