Just to add to Wheelspinner's comment about nose jobs. I too have some experience in this field! I splice the fuselage sides first, pretty much as described, just leaving them sticking straight forward. Then I splice in a new or repaired battery tray. If I do this carefully, I now have a nice straight nose and it's much easier to work on the glue joints and add the nose bulkhead, than if I pull the sides together first and then try to fit the bottom and battery tray after.

Of course different breaks may need different techniques. But Depron is remarkably easy to work with in this kind of situation.
