Mid-fuselage bulkheads complete

It's been a long time coming, but the first section of the fuselage kit is complete!

I bolted and riveted the mid seat rail supports to the forward center section:

then the forward center section bulkheads:

Similarly, for the aft center section, which has aft seat rail supports:

and the hat stiffeners:

Complete aft center section bulkheads

Did I say it's complete? I lied - there's actually one small part left - the L-shaped bar at the end of the center section didn't fit (the drilling is done in the inverted position and I forgot to try it out and grind it to fit :/ ) - I'm delaying that until the next batch of primer.

Stiffener angle that needs grinding down

Time lapse:

Total mid-fuselage bulkhead rivets: 617
Total mid-fuselage bulkhead time: 59.2h
