I started with the rear and forward spars laid out above the dimensions drawn on paper.

My son Chris helping with some of the layout work.

With the vertical stab. I had fitted the skin while the frame was still in clecoes. I decided to rivet this frame together before fitting the skins. I laid out the skins on both sides, hanging the skins over the edge of the workbench.

I clecoed the frame to the workbench in a few places to keep things flat as the skin was pulled down over the other side.
