With the rear fuselage sides, top, and bottom all riveted together we have moved on to the baggage area. First the flaperon torque tube, bellcranks, and motor assembly were fitted in place. Next was the rear baggage panel followed by the baggage floor and tunnel pieces. Here they are all clocoed in place for drilling to final size. The floor and tunnel pieces will be reinstalled after the forward fuselage is joined to the rear to facilitate the connection of the controls. Next we will start the forward fuselage so soon we can sit in it and make airplane noises.

All the mating surfaces have duplicolor self-etching corrosion inhibiting primer between them. We have been careful to prime the surfaces that are least apparent, just a cosmetic choice.

This close-in pic, along with the other build photos are great. I can see the level of CAD/CAM prefabrication and I am impressed. I take it that you are building this up without any anti-corrosion coatings (unless I have missed that part of it). The CH 750 is some sharp plane! Gus, can you give us a hint on which engine you will be installing? Big Boy Corvair (I hope). Thanks to you and Jon for keeping us up to date.
