Over the last two days, I decided to tackle the Spider plate. The lower half of the plate was welded to the upper section. I welded both sides the entire length of the plate. Since I gas welded this, it took a bit of time.
Here's a closer shot. I have a few more rivets to shoot yet before the plate is finished. After that, the entire spider plate will be blasted and painted. This is the last major part I had to finish. Now, all the basic fuselage fittings are complete and the next step is to paint them all and reassemble the fuselage.
While I was away, Paul Daugherty sent me a progress picture of the Golden Age Air Museum Jenny. Very nice!
Also found this neat Jenny picture on the NASAM website. Thought you might like to enjoy it.
Till next time
