Cover Fuselage

I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that the fuselage took almost twice as long to cover as one of the wings. After all, there are four sides instead of two. Also, since most of the control cables and electrical wiring and fuel lines run underneath the floor, I had to install those before covering the bottom of the fuselage. I also have lots (like, 17) inspection rings all over the bottom of the fuselage. I was going to take a picture of them before flipping the plane right-side up again, but unfortunately, I forgot. The next step is filling and priming!

Total Time: 154.5 hrs.
