Finished Vertical Stabilizer

Today I finished my first part, the vertical stabilizer! I'm pretty excited and it is really nice to have a part done. I'm even more eager now to get my next part finished. The rudder is next and I even got a start on that today. I back riveted the stiffeners onto the skins; a process that is really easy and quick. Lessons learned on the vertical stabilizer: tape the bucking bar, turn down the air pressure on small rivets and thin skin, and drilling out rivets is easy. Im really happy with the way my first part turned out! (7.5)
