Flying a Vans RV-10.

Mid Fuse Side Skins

Long weekend, so thought I’d get caught up. Panel is coming soon (more on that later) and I have a bit to go before I get to the point I can test fit it.

Worked on the mid fuselage side skins today. First needed to bend the aft bottom edges. I had someone with more experience than me with wood build the spec’d bending block. Thanks Dad.

The bend radius on both sides turned out better than I’d hoped for. I was really dreading this part, but it was not bad at all.
