I have tried to cheat with foam and bending full pieces of balsa to make up compound curves when building balsa neccels on planes but i always end up back planking them with strips and sanding them to shape . If i would just planked them to begin with i would have not wasting any time. Will i try cheating again,probobly
,iam hard headed sometimes at trying to do somthing new.
I like your build so far david ,alot of thought has gone into the framework of the fuse and it looks good.
