The fuselage, with its compound curves, is more difficult, but if you take your time you will have few problems. One of the tricks for curves (especially wing edges) is to cut slits toward the part so that the glass fibre will fold around the part and overlap, rather than bunch up.

For the sake of it being easier, I generally do one half of each part at a time. Bottom portion of the wing and one half of the fuselage one day. Then the remaining sides and halfs the next day. As this is still the first coat of PolyCrylic no noticable ridges will be seen in the model and it makes for much easier handling.
