Mid Fuselage trying skins on

I have decided to subject the fuselage longerons to some more hammering in order to get them to conform with fuselage shape without much force applied. Now they fit nicely.

Clecoed both skins and doublers to do match drilling.

Not sure why do I need to put doublers for match-drilling. They align with each other nicely. Anyway, I did as the instructions said – match-drilled them.

Match-drilled the longerons using side skins as templates.

Now the fuselage looks like a boat 🙂

Removed the skins and longerons.

Next step is a lot of deburring.
