Left flap riveting & 500 hours!

Hours: 2.5 | Posted in Flaps

Fit the top skin and leading edge skins to the left flap, and riveted them in place.  Made a couple light smilies when I lost track of the gun during the vertical riveting.  Sigh…but no big deal.

Tonight’s session also saw the passing of the 500-hour mark on the build.  It doesn’t seem like that much time, but I have been working on the project for over two years (I started in earnest in May, 2007).  This means I’m somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of the way done, based on hours.  So, 4-6 more years?
