Got busy on the project today. I disassembled and prepared the F-705A lower fuselage bulkhead for riveting. Once I got that done I had to fabricate the F-705G angles for the tip up canopy. And then I drilled the snap bushing holes to the full size.
My next steps was to fabricate the F-705J Angles, the F-705K plates, and the F-705L seat adjustment supports. Once I had all the parts made I was able to drill and rivet to the F-705F Channel.
