My fuselage finally came, so I could get back to work.

This is also my first post here.  I have finished my empennage and started on the fuselage today. I drilled all the stiffeners and longerons on the bottom skin.

My first post!

Today I drilled the longerons for the left aft side fuselage skin.  Also cut the lateral stiffeners.  This is my first post to the group.  I started the project at a Zenith workshop on 5/21/15.  I have completed the rudder, horizontal stabilizer, elevator and trim tab, bottom aft fuselage skin and right aft fuselage skin.  I have had to be out of town for about half of the time since I started the project.  Won't have to travel as much in the future and plan to spend more time on the plane. …
