First Look at the Turtle Deck on the Plane

The Turtle deck skin is cut out drilled and ready for riveting. Next we are going to weld the mounting plates to the fuselage. We will mount the bottom of the turtle deck to the fuselage and bolt it in place, then bond the formers to the skin and cleko it together. This will give us a nice snug solid unit that will fit nicely to the fuselage. When that sets, we will rivet the skin and formers and bottom pan all together. Stay tuned.
