      The fuselage bottom and top sub assemblies. To get the rounded corners of the fuselage is achieved by these assemblies first having 1/4" square balsa sticks glued to the bottom edge and then along side of these is 3/8" balsa triangle stock,

The alignment of gluing on the doubler is via the six 1/8" dia. dowel alignment pegs.

          So i just wanted to say that this is a general build thread. (Kinda like a synopsis) The kit like all of my other kits has a step by step construction manual with TONS of color photos which is laser printed and wire bound. In the past I used to finish the prototype and sit down and do the manual. Ugh! I would sit there for a month straight trying to figure out what I was trying to show. So now i take about 100 pictures and then do those steps while it's still fresh in my mind.

            The fuselage starts its aft construction assembly flat on the work bench.

                The fuselage sides are hung on (glued) along with the rear top section. Then the remaining CNC cut birch ply formers are epoxied into place.

              The landing gear mounting plate is not only just tied into the fuselage side but onto the main 3/8" birch ply former.

                The cockpit cabin floor will give you plenty of room for securing batteries, receivers, telemetry etc. etc.

                          Thank you yyz, I try to make it easy with interlocking parts and tabs. What makes it even easier will be the instruction manual.
