Yep, those half formers are exactly what I was thinking, two thumbs up.
And I have a pretty simple idea for the wing-fuse crutch, or whatever it's called, we can just notch the bottom corners of the formers (or where the wing-fuse meet) just like for the stringers, and simply bend a balsa stick into place, that should work just fine, although the bottom side will need to be lightly sanded to match the wing, no biggie though. Simple and easy enough, huh?

Man, I really like the little details on the cowl, very nice! And as far as scale, it looks good to me... besides, I doubt any so called scale planes out there are really true to scale with everything. I say if it looks good, go with it.

Happy hunting,
Dean
