Began Riveting Bulkheads

I had a busy day of family stuff scheduled today, but I managed to squeeze an hour or shop time in. I started riveting the bulkheads together, which is a pretty easy job overall. Since I didnít have much time, I chose the easy ones.

I riveted the F-707, F-708 ,F-710 and F-712 (not pictured) bulkheads. After I took this picture I realized that I shouldn't have riveted the top two rivets on the F-707, and they will have to be drilled out. It's easy to make little mistakes like this as the fuse plans are complicated with lots of little notes all over them which are easy to miss.
