Today I will continue with riveting the doublers on both the vertical fin front spar and rear spar. Since I left off the other day having finished riveting the flush rivets. I then continued with the AN-470-4 rivets for the rest of the VS-808PP rear spar doubler.
In the pictures below you’ll notice that I use some green painters tape here and there. This is a visual cue for me not to rivet those holes. In this instance I used the tape to identify where the vertical fin ribs will attach later in the assembly process.
Below is the VS-803PP rear spar with riveting of the VS-808PP doubler complete. All the riveting was accomplished using the Main Squeeze hand squeezer as shown in the picture. This tool works so good.

Moving on, I proceeded with riveting the VS-702 front spar including the addition of VS-001 and VS-002 F1 Rocket mod doublers.
Below shows the VS-001 doubler riveted in place.
Below shows the VS-002 doubler riveted in place.
Please comment, I love to hear from my readers. Thanks again for coming along for this ride, you make my work worthwhile.
