Rear Seat Back Finished

Time: 0.5 hrs

Having pulled the bottom channel part from a fuselage kit at TAF Torrance a few weeks ago, I was finally able to finish up the rear seat back. I also modified the piano hinge so that it sits flush against the seat at the ends. When I built the rear seat I noticed that having the side channel parts on the outside of the skin fit much better. I don’t think this is how TAF or the builders built their seat back, but it seemed to work better for me. But having done this it made the bottom hinge not sit flush on the ends so a little cutting and filing made that better. Now I just need to give it a few coats on gray paint and then attach it to the seat bottom.
