Vertical Stabiliser 06-05

As per most of the build there is a lot of taking built items to bits again.  This needs to be done to deburr all the match and final drill holes.  Once the VS was back in bits it was time to dimple the skin and ribs along with countersinking the strengthener.  First error made when I hit the dimpler when the male had jumped out of the hole resulting in a small dimple in the skin.  It isn’t hugely noticeable and I will just leave it – lesson learnt.

Now waiting for a couple of connectors for the airline so I can get going with priming the VS parts. I have gone with Stewart Systems EkoPrime along with EkoClean and EkoEtch for prep.  The spray gun remains a mystery at this time…
