Installing compression struts

Sorry was too busy trying to install a new insinkerator yesterday.

So back to plane stuff today.

With Nicki’s help, holding the spar assembly while on the fuselage, I riveted the compression strut closest to the fuselage to make sure the spacing is “perfect”. All others were riveted while on the garage floor 🙂

Also here you can see one of the ribs on the spars…….. ( and Ben, our dog, inspecting my work )

Also have a look at the ends of the spars below. Squashed to the size of the tube going along the edge of the wing and at the right angle ( I hope ).
