Step 4

With Foam Safe CA or Gorilla Glue, attach the laminated front body side parts to the body sides.

Although I try to avoid carbon to reduce costs, I found that it adds a lot to Flyguy. The cutouts come with the channels routed for the breast plate and the arm/top plate carbon tube. I take the 40 inch long 1/8 inch diameter tube and cut the length for the breast plate. Glue it in place with CA and then cut the remaining tube in half. I then take each half and glue them into their channels in the arm plates so that they meet in the center. I then glue the two arm/top plate halfs together.

It is time to determine if you will modify Flyguy to a distinct outline. I decided to build Ironman 3 and modified the shape of the cutouts. Some places I added with scrap and some places I removed material, but still a Flyguy. In the build log I have used pictures from the original Version 1 build for clarity.
