Tail work

Andy and I have spent all week riveting the tail on and together. It has been alot of riveting and thankfully very little repairing. The tail is notoriously hard for getting to come out looking nice. It is not that the riveting is difficult but that the skins are very thin, .016" to be exact. You can bend or dent them just by handling them to rough and riveting can be a rough process.
Andy is seen here above working on the tail former's and below riveting on a skin.
Chuck has been working on getting the flaps and ailerons fitted to the wings and Phil (below) has been working on the electrical system.
MMS has recently posted a video on the removal of the 207's tail and can be seen here.

Thanks for checking in and I'll try to post again next week. Josh
