Baggage area started

Before attaching the tailcone, I got started on the baggage area, and fabricated the hinges which later attach the seat backs:

I then clecoed it all and final-drilled all the floor holes:

I fabricated the baggage floor stiffeners from the provided angles, then also final-drilled them with the floors:

Once the tailcone was attached, I then worked on drilling the door seal parts:

It was then time to attach and match-drill the bulkhead corrugations and the right baggage cover:

Many of those holes are actually for nutplates, so I drilled the nutplate rivet holes as well:

Finally, I fabricated the plastic wear blocks and match-drilled them to the corrugations:

The next steps for this section are to figure out the step inspection panel, and then priming all parts.

Time lapse:

Total baggage area rivets: 0
