Hey Cruzer Builders,
I Found a 'Gap' while fitting the Vertical Stabilizer (VS) to trim it (many times) for the elevator deflection... I am not sure i have it built correctly. If it is correct, then i'll need a 'FIX' to continue.
The piece cleco's in well, but there is a sizable Gap where the side skin has to be pulled away to extend over the VS Spar; thereafter not allowing the skin to stay 'nested' in the recesses of the longerons.
My Kit was purchased in November 2016, and i was given 2 different sets of drawings. Reviewing the different drawing sets, i found that the rear side skin piece, F1-4, was changed, while R3-10 was eliminated. Basically R3-10 was a strap to tie into the VS Spar and the latest drawing revisions show the tie-in being done by F1-4. So R3-10 would have sat on the outside of the skin.
My problem is that i cannot rivet the skin to the last hole of the longeron until i fill the gap, otherwise it will kink the skin massively. Unfortunately, the rivet that i am most concerned with is directly beneath my finger in the photo.
I am hoping to correctly upload a photo to accompany.
Thanks to ALL for taking the time to view and consider my issue. All comments are welcome.
