Section 29 complete!

I’m so very glad to be done with this section.  It’s been long, frustrating, poorly-documented and mistake-prone.

Drilled the step mounting block:

Started deburring for Section 31:

Berck: 2 hours, Gopal: 3 hours, Jonah: 2.75 hours

Landing Gear Mounts

Astonishingly, it took us all day to get these bolted on.  Fortunately, we don’t have to take them off again.  About the only way to get them to line up was to grind a bolt down to make an alignment down, pound the dowel in with a hammer, then knock a bolt in behind the dowel.  The amount of space to work with between the forward/aft spar sections is a further complication.

Berck:6 hours, Randy: 6 hours, Jonah: 1 hour
