Make the main mold and thinking about the seam

Hello folks!

The next few days I hope to start building the main mold.

The wing and fuselage will you be a single piece.

It's a big mold.

I have some doubt on how to make the seam.

Do you have any advice on this issue?

On the fuselage part, I think that will make one half of the mold and then make a template along the fuselagem about 10mm height. The idea is to use this template to make an overlap on the layup. I also think that will move this template about 1mm inside the fuselage to be possible to join the two halves.

I know that would be better express hths ideas with a drawing, but I am away from a computer. Just using my tablet and waiting for the next flight.

On monday will be on vacation.


I appreciate any help!
