Frame in fuselage

Everything ready now for the last part of the seat, the leather seat covering.

Today I added a bend tube connected to the top longerons, creating a nice “opening” for the top of the fuselage. Only thing left to do is a piece of aluminium to connect the new bend tube with the straight bit, just behind it. That sheet will also have two slots in it for the top two belts of the safety belt.

Don’t look at the floor under the Bleriot. As its in an open shed, the wind is always blowing around creating a mess 🙂

I have finished the 4 gusset plates for attaching the seat to the two bottom longerons, but they are not shown yet. They go in last after the leather covering is fixed to the seat frame.
