One thing to note on the fuse construction, I do not bond the forward, middle, and rear fuse sections together. I bond them all to the skin, and use the skin as a hinge to make the tapered forward and rear sections. After everything is set to shape, you can go back and wick a very small amount of thin foam safe into those joints to bond the foam sections of the fuselage together.
