Floor Supports

I flipped the fuselage over in order to add the floor supports. I did things a little bit differently than the plans specify. Rather than build the "ribs" separately and install them as complete pieces into the fuselage, I custom fit each individual piece of each "rib" to the fuselage.
I'm sure it took longer to do it this way, but I'm very happy with the results.

Also, since I'm still playing with the idea of putting the fuel tank in the baggage
compartment, I decided to beef up the floor supports in that area.
Now, they are the same as those in the passenger compartment.

Total Time: 23.0 hrs.
