Truing Up the Frames

The next step was to start cutting formers and eithr removing or adding material to get the height and width corrected. Balsa shims were used to fill the gaps on the short ones, and material was appropriately cut away to fix theose that were too big. And finally, the stern was widened and glued in place. From there, the odd contors were built up using 1/126 X 1/8 balsa to build up the shortfalls, then the whole thing bar sanded into final form.
