…back to the VS

Just finished up the HS to the point of being ready for inspection. So…back to the VS.
The next step in VS construction was riveting the rear spar together. Not too many problems here; the pneumatic rivet squeezer proved its worth once again while squeezing all those -4 rivets.
Finally got some use out of the Avery back-riveting plate. The countersunk/dimpled rivets came out pretty well – or at least the camera makes ’em look good.
The frame is going together next. Here, the bottom rib/spar rivets are ready to be squeezed or bucked. I really need a thin-nose/no-hole yoke for the squeezer. It would really help here.
