Finished riveting
Catégorie: Empennage : Rudder

Rivetted the trailing edge using Vans' method. The rivets are double flush, setting them is a bit special. On the picture one can see the half squeezed rivet, when completlety set the tail will fill the dimple and look as a manufactured head.



The trailing edge tough not straight as a ruler is well within the specifications(less than 0,1 inch)



Then the leading edges are rolled using
Hervé's tool. To get the correct shape, some hand massaging was applied.



And here is the rudder assembled with the horizontal stab.
