Here are the pictures of the formers in place. Next, possibly tonight, I'll mount the structure on the T-braces and get it lined up to add the stringers.
BIW. My thoughts on the firewall are to trace F-1 onto a piece of ply and re-cut it to front mount my engine on. I would put F-2 where it is supposed to go, and then build a bass wood truss structure around the motor between the two formers for added strength. In your opinion, would this help give the added strength I need to handle some of the torque and twisting?

Formers in place. Amazing how fast this one starts looking like a 109.
Ready to get the t-braces on and start stringing this guy! I'm still working out the mounting of my Rimfire motor before installing F-1 and F-2.
