Well believe it or not I have still been working on the plane, just forgetting to take pics!

I also found out while working on the plane that I may or may not be allergic to bees (when you think you are brushing off a piece of aluminum from your shirt it may be a bee...). haha Had to take a few days off for this one...

I finished the center section bulkhead as well as the 705 bulkhead. The 705 bulkhead took waaaaay more time than I thought it would. Many parts to fabricate and a lot of non-punched parts. I also managed to get most of the way done with the 706 bulkhead. Only a couple more days and I think the bulkheads will all be ready for priming.

Creative clamping time.

The 706 bulkhead is actually making things look like something!

Jereme, the fun is just starting! Wait until you get to put all those pieces together. YES----you must sit in it and make engine noises!

Carne!
I think for me 706 was the most fun. Really starting to give it form, and function. I just got a series to do so I am going to be out for some time, so carry on brother builder!

Sorry for the bee sting deal, that looks painful!

Tom thanks for the words, the fuselage has been loads of fun so far, even deburring is more fun because it's always different. Airplane noises will for sure be happening!

Kent that's awesome you got another series under your belt, just build when you can man, I have really come to take to heart the saying someone posted about it being a marathon not a sprint.

After a very short match drilling session time for a good ole mass quantity of hours spent deburring. Lots of nooks and crannies in these babies. At least it won't be as painful as the wing ribs!

I use 400 grit sand cloth for all my deburring. Only bad part is it doesn't last long.

For deburring, I find a Roloc disk (blue usually) in the angle grinder works really well. No self-mutilation required at all.... I bought a box, and it lasted through the wings and fuse.

DUDE! That is a lot of emory cloth! I guess I didn't do as good a job LOL. Scotch Brite wheel and an angle grinder with Scotch Brite little wheels and a file was my route...hope that was satisfactory for the job.
Did the cut my finger test all around and came out clean in the end...

I tried this once upon a time but never understood how people got it into the little nooks and crannies.

The stuff I use is off of McMaster, its aluminum oxide and it really doesn't last long at all which is why I go through so much of it. I wasn't happy with the marks a file left so I abandoned that, maybe it was my technique though.
