Broke some glue out-

Sometimes you can only stare at something so long before you either need to get the saw or the glue out and make something happen. Last night I was at the point where it was time to do something, anything. I finally decided to break the glue out and see what happens. I had already glued the ribs in and have been fighting with the chines. Like everything else on the 1:1 boat, the chines actually have a complex curve while slightly rotating. I originally was looking at using 1/4" balsa for this, but I couldn't get it to bend and twist sharp enough even after soaking and steaming. Made a trip to the hobby shop and found some 1/8" x 1/4" spruce that bent really easy. Will just need to glue 2 of them together for the 1/4" x 1/4" total I need. Although I have only glued from the bow to the 3rd rib, so far so good.
