It's always cool to see something(s) come together and look more and more like an airplane!

Wau It is only about 30-40 hours in build and I think I already have enough dollars in my jar to purchase another pneumatic squeezer

Did you close up entirely? Is there access to see every rivet you set? Just curious as there is a pre-cover inspection requirement in Canada.
Congrats for the big achievement though.

Thank you! This is a first and big step for me!
Yes, I closed it entirely. I verified and I am able to see with naked eye and a light each and every rivet around the stabilizer as well as inside through the holes in the bottom ribs.
However for my next part - rudder, I will likely keep one side opened until inspection because you are right - in Canada the rules are strict and inspector may want to see each and every rivet.

I 've started to work on my Rudder now. Lots of cutting is involved in this part Looks like VAN's moves me to a new level where I have to cut parts out of bigger parts and at some point I will not be surprised to see one huge part for complete step and instructions: Cut to your needs and use file to make it to desired shape

Few pictures from my shop below

Hey there Vlad

Looks like an amazing shop and job you are doing. I am right behind you on the RV10 build. Will be on the rudder in a couple days. Keep the Pictures coming.

Cheers

Hey! Thank you for your feedback!
Will keep pictures and videos coming and good luck with your build!
For rudder do not forget to purchase tank sealant in advance- it takes some to get it shipped and you will need it for final assembly.
