How about this? Two posts in one month!

Yes, things are progressing again. The tailwheel is now in place, but that does not mean that it is fastened to the fuselage permanently. I am only using temporary bolts for two purposes; first, I needed to find out exactly how long the permanent bolts need to be, and second, the bolt holes need to be sealed on the inside. I have been thinking that I will probably use drilled bolts and castellated nuts and cotter pins to fasten the tailwheel permanently.

I did take some pictures. Last Saturday when the work was being done, the weather was cool and a bit wet. However, it was nice enough that I could get the plane outside and take a few pictures. Then Marsha offered to take a picture of me with the airplane so that you could get an idea of the size of the project. So here are the pictures.

Well, it is time to start the day.
