10-04, aft bulkhead

I completed the aft bulkhead this afternoon without too many problems.  No rivets had to be drilled out for a change!   It's a bit scuffed up, but I'm working on learning how to work the aluminum without scratching it and making an unpretty part.  This is the front side, looking at it upside down.

Next step is to detour to the making of the cradle in which to build up the tail cone.
