One step forward and two steps backwards.....
I ripped the sheeting off the forward part of the fuse last night. It seemed to me the best way to go and gain access for further repairs. It's a good thing I did as I found more damage. Nothing terrible but a little medium CA was needed. I'm amazed at how brittle the glue used in the original construction is. It pops right off buy scraping with a #11blade. You have to remember I got out of the hobby about the time ARF's were coming of age. This is my only second experience with an ARF. My first was assembling a H9 CAP 232.

All the sheeting stripped and also the five stringers. Three on top and one on each side.
Just another shot of the bones.
Having the sheeting gone made the job of removing this broken wing bolt MUCH easier!
