Fitting doublers between stringers in high load areas, before fitting deck skin.

Cockpit sole fitted.

Side decks and cabin sides and top added. Fitting the panels in that order produced a minor problem with the cabin aft end not fitting correctly. The more accurate order would be:-
1) Cockpit sole and sides
2) sidedecks
3) Cabin aft end
4) Cabin sides
5) Cabin top
Fitting in this order sets up the cabin aft end as a bulkhead to define the correct curve of the cabin sides.

All deck and cockpit panels complete. The glue lines parallel to the side and top edges of the cabin end are the result of the incorrect order of fitting the panels as described above.
