Thank you minimicrorc, another good site to save.

Stayed up late and have 90% of parts cut. Quick and easy to cut out and trim to fit.
Fuselage sides and formers are together

The flat bottoms of the foam boxes and plates is not flat
Not a problem except for the wing panels as they are curved in 2 direction.
Have an idea on how to cure the problem with an aluminum jig bent to have camber
to place panels on and a little heat to reshape the foam to the jig.
The camber should flatten and stiffen wing in the span direction.

So far having a blast so something is bound to go wrong soon.
