The fuselage was made from 3/32 balsa as said earlier soaked in ammonia. The ammonia softens the wood and makes it pliable. Nevertheless you still have to cut 'darts' in the wood to remove excess material at the nose and tail.

Foaming 'Gorilla' glue was used to stick the ply doubler. The glue was spread onto the ply with a credit-card to get a thin, even layer.
