My wife graduated today with her Masters of Education. That and christmas decorations took precedence over building.
Did manage to sneak in a little time on the kit.
Make static clips. Finaly figured out a good way to do it. Plus it can be done inside while watching football.
Dimple top J-stringers and 787 center rib and reinforcing plate.
Dimple 710 bulkhead.
Drill 705 bulkhead and baggage rib for nutplates holding the flap bearing block.

A few miscellaneous items, just too cold. We had snow - for about 5 minutes and then the sun came out. Reworked the static port hookups based on pictures posted by Tony Phillips. Hi Tony! Also finished reaming the right main gear bolt hole. The gear weldments are ready to go now.
