Tailcone – Tail Bulkhead completed. Almost

Almost finished the tail bulkhead. Almost because I ran our of AN470AD4-6 rivets.

I’ve done silly thing – I though it would be a good idea to use solid rivets instead of pulled rivets in some parts of the bulkhead. It is a good idea from structural point of view, but I forgot that there is only a certain number of AN4704-6 rivets supplied with the kit. So right at the very end I found that I’m 3 solid rivets short to complete the bulkhead.

Now I need to source them from somewhere. They are very cheap in US, but Aircraft Spruce charges $65 US for delivery of $10 worth of rivets. So, I’m on a quest to find a local supplier of aircraft hardware.
